This is the character creator folder for the Halifax Stone, just in case the thread name didn't give it away. Basically, all you do is describe your character so that the other players/writers have an idea of what your character is like. This is not only helpful in general, but also stakes your claim on that particular character, so that no one else can control them.

A basic template is listed below, but feel free to add on if you have more information to share about your character.

Name: Nobody knows his real name. He's known as "Master Heron" to the rich, as "the Magician" to the inhabitants of the underbelly of the city.
Pronunciation: Normal pronunciation of the word, both times.
Appearance: He looks like a man in his early twenties, tall and pale, with blond curls and turquoise eyes. He's beautiful, with almost feminine features.
Occupation: As "Master Heron" he's one of the most respected merchant of magical and rare goods. Because of the beauty of his wares he's accepted in the high society.
As "the Magician" he's a legend of the city's worst quarters. Most don't believe he even exists. He's involved in pretty much every shady business on both sides of the river.
General attitude/behavior: Friendly, but his friendliness comes off as unsettling most of the time.
Personality traits or msc. info: He always has an hidden agenda and he's liable to change sides in a conflict at any given time, depending on which side benefits him the most.
He's very clever and he never lies: he relies on fine print and unclear wording in order to trick other people.
Many believe that he's not, or at least, not fully human. (Wether or not they're right will be revealed later).
He's not native of Shael and he travels a lot. Nobody knows where he goes when he leaves the city, but when he returns he always has some new wonder to display in his shop.

Appearance: She's in her teens, short and very thin, with reddish-brown hair and a slightly crooked nose.

General attitude/behavior: Talkative and extrovert, sarcastic.
Personality traits or msc. info: She is an orphan and grew up on the streets with her brother. She has the power to change her features. The Magician found that intriguing and he offered to take her and his brother if she put her talent to his service. She hasn't been able to master any other magic than shapeshifting. She's fiercely loyal and very protective to him and her brother.
She likes shiny things, which is why they called her Magpie.

General attitude/behavior: He's quite introvert and quiet, especially with people he doesn't know that well.

✿ αzzι ✿ (azziplz) Name: Aveline (no last name)

Pronunciation: Ah-vah-linn

Appearance: Pale, average height, pale blue eyes, wispy fair hair, sickly thin, slightly transparent.

Occupation: She is the stone's guardian.

General attitude/behavior: Quiet, shy.

Personality traits or msc. info: When Aveline was fifteen, she was kidnapped by the stone's creator, and he bonded her spirit with the stone's. As long as the stone exists, she exists, as a sort of guardian-spirit thingy for the stone.

(Is this okay? I was talking with Maya and Soph since they're in my class, and they didn't seem to like the idea much, but I will make it fit in with the story, and I just wanted to make a charrie called Aveline ;))


message 15: by Maya (new)

Maya | 48 comments Nah, that's okay Arnold. As long as everyone else agrees, I'm fine with it.
I do have a question though: When would Aveline appear? Why?


message 16: by ✿ αzzι ✿ (new)

✿ αzzι ✿ (azziplz) Hmmm... She could appear to Zyrah? I don't know. The stone could get all tired or munted or worn out from all the teleporting and it kicks out Aveline's spirit for the moment, and she's all tired and unconcious-y? I don't know... Feel free to add ideas!


message 17: by sᴏᴘʜ|☂ (new)

sᴏᴘʜ|☂ (nowoffish) heh. Or maybe Zyrah could be like the master and it should greet her or something?


message 18: by ✿ αzzι ✿ (new)

✿ αzzι ✿ (azziplz) Mmm


message 19: by sᴏᴘʜ|☂ (new)

sᴏᴘʜ|☂ (nowoffish) Mayo? What do you think? It is your character.


message 20: by ✿ αzzι ✿ (new)

✿ αzzι ✿ (azziplz) True...


message 21: by Maya (new)

Maya | 48 comments That's fine! Does everyone else agree?


message 22: by Dana (new)

Dana Smythe | 273 comments Mod
Only if she keeps it a secret from the Magician


message 23: by sᴏᴘʜ|☂ (new)

sᴏᴘʜ|☂ (nowoffish) yup that's a good idea.


message 24: by ✿ αzzι ✿ (new)

✿ αzzι ✿ (azziplz) This is the new character who's going to be in the place of Liv... It's Catherine's character, we were working on her together.

Name: Lyssa "Lyss" Giathe

Pronunciation: Liss-ah "Liss" Guy-att

Appearance: Pale skin, straight black hair in a tidy, short bob, one pale blue human eye/one bright green cat eye, short, skinny, long claws, black tail and ears which she usually hides under a hat.

Occupation: Lives on streets, occasionally works at the fishmongers stall filleting the fish.

General attitude/behavior: Quiet, shy, can be feisty about things she cares about. Doesn’t trust anyone.

Personality traits or msc. info: When Lyss was young, she was taken away from her family and used as a guinea pig for a magical apprentice. In a spell gone wrong, her DNA was mixed with that of a cat’s, so she has claws, a tail, ears, and she is faster and stronger, along with having one cat eye. She escaped when she was nine and has spent the majority of her life living on the streets since, shunned by humans.

So, just to get it straight, this is NOT my character. This is CATHERINE'S.


message 25: by Maya (new)

message 26: by Maya (new)
