16 ( junior ) ▸ female ( bisexual + status )
spell casting + fire manipulation
The few she trusts and loves are few and far between, and she chooses them carefully. Few in Alistair know her for who she truly is, most know her as the girl she wishes she could be.

She exudes an aura of confidence wherever she goes. She pretends she knows what she's doing so much that she even believes herself. She is the beautiful, intelligent and dangerous girl with the fiery red hair that you don't want to cross. She's the girl who is in control of her life, who lets no one else write her destiny. She is a girl with a wildfire that cannot be tamed. And if you get in her way? Well, you're going to be burned.

Her journey to Aleister wasn't easy. Although she'd never admit it, the first fourteen years of her life were very sheltered. Being suddenly thrust into the world and having to travel miles on her own to find a place she didn't know how to find was the most difficult experience of her life. Spell casting was next to useless to her on her trek. Her family hadn't produced a magician in many generations, so she had no heirlooms, no magic spell books on which she could rely.

And her fire was unreliable and dangerous. An attempt to make a campfire led to her being forced to flee from the wildfire she'd created. She nearly died that night, racing ahead of the fire as the oxygen was sucked from the air and her lungs filled with smoke. When she finally escaped the fire and stood and watched the destruction she had created, as an entire forest slowly succumbed to the flames, she vowed she would never use her fire again.

Which didn't work out so well for her. Fire does not like to be contained, and it built up and built up until she could stand it no more. She forced herself to learn control, carrying large quantities of water everywhere she went just in case. She walked for weeks on end, collapsing with exhaustion each night.

Until finally, she found the town of Aleister. She didn't know how she knew it was her destination, but she did. This was where she was supposed to be.

────────────────── [ ELISE MARIE EKHOLM ] ─────────────────

seventeen ; bisexual ; necromancy

Elise has never been sure of herself. Insecure to the core, she falters and hesitates over every opportunity, never sure whether she's good enough. Even when it comes to things she's actually talented at, she can't seem to escape that voice in her head, whispering at every moment that she will never actually amount to anything, that she shouldn't even try.

She never expected to be a magician. No one in her immediate family was. There was always some story or another pulled out at family dinners about some great-grandfather who could fly or a third cousin who could see the future. But Elise never really believed that. Those were just stories that family members told when they had a little bit too much to drink. Right?

It took the death and accidental resurrection of the family cat for her to realize that those family stories were true. It came as a complete shock to both her and her family. Everyone struggled to accept it and adapt──her parents struggled to understand how their daughter could do such a strange thing, and Elise struggled to understand this new gift she had, which fascinated and terrified her in equal measure.

Even years later, Elise still hasn't really come to terms with it. She had always been that awkward girl, uncomfortable in her own skin, but her necromantic abilities only made it worse. The power to raise the dead is not something lightly accepted, especially not when even magicians──the people she was supposed to be a part of, supposed to fit in with──find it to be taboo.

emilia has been a perfect picture since anyone can remember her. When she was little, parents would tell their girls to be like her, kind, considerate, never looking for trouble. Now, she’s an eager student, a role model, always the one who stays calm and patient the longest amid danger and unexpected crisis. She’s been the perfect daughter, perfect sister, perfect student, perfect friend ever since her birth, it seems. At the surface, it all looks so natural and effortless. As if it all boiled down to what she was born with that others just weren’t. But behind every perfect picture, there’s a darker meaning.

She wasn’t always so considerate. Not many people can remember exactly how she was before she turned seven, but she wasn’t nearly as kind as she is now. It all changed when suddenly she could see where her classmate really got his bruises from and memories from the past started flooding her mind. Suddenly, she could see all the darker days people had been through, and all their ugly memories became hers too. It’s helped her understand people and the world so much better, but it’s taken it’s toll on her too.

Constantly being whisked from the present to the past and back, Emilia’s slowly losing her grip on her sense of time. And the darkness she can’t help but see everywhere is damaging her sanity, too. There’s only so much a seventeen year old girl can see without breaking. Gradually, her magic stutters, flickering out of power and then suddenly coming back in full swing. It gives her constant headaches and evermore constant reminders of how dark the world can get. Despite this, she tries to hang on, stay kind and thoughtful, but who knows how long she can last.

Emilia’s darker side is almost the same shade of black as the memories around her. On her journey to Aleister, she’s seen more than she should have, both in the past and present. She may not look it, but she’s learnt how to cut someone from neck to waist with the company’s she been around for the last few months before Aleister. With these dark memories also comes the desire to use them, often against people. After all, there’s rarely anything Emilia can see in someone’s past besides the darkness and their secrets. She’ll be a force to be reckoned with, if the darkness ever gets to her.
before Aleister, she lived in a lovely house, someplace in western England. Her family was a long line of magicians married to magicians, which would explain why her magic started manifesting so early. She’s been training, honing her magic since she was seven, but it hadn’t been so easy. Her magic was way more volatile than others’. Her magic would keep whisking her away, miles from home, without any warning and the past she kept seeing was practically melted into the reality her real eyes saw. She was a soft, gentle child, but her parents could see she was struggling, maybe even going off her rocker. So they gave her a necklace, made by her grandmother, who enchanted it such that her magic would be suppressed.

Then she turned sixteen and her mentor saw that it was time for her to leave her hometown and find her own way. She travelled with her brother, though. For the first few months, all was well, they were making good progress. They found and stopped by a few other magical hotspots, but somehow Emilia just never felt right in any of them. She kept searching for another. And that’s how she ended up separated from her brother and later, in the company of an unruly street gang. She came upon them in one town in the States by accident when her hand brushed again their car and her mind got transported back in time. She blanked out on the outside while inside, she reeled back in shock after seeing the violence the car’d been through. By the time she snapped back into reality, they were already onto her.

They were an all-female gang, formed by women and girls of different races and religions. They took a special liking to her, a pure, innocent girl still unharmed by the harshness of the world. They let her tag along with them, as long as she didn’t cause any trouble (which she was good at) and pulled her own weight (which she was also good at). They promised to keep her out of whatever business they had as much as they could, but that hardly did any good. They would leave her in their hideouts at night and return in the early morning, blood staining their shirts and with a few broken bones. All it took was for her to accidentally take any one of their hands and the night’s ugly affairs would reveal themselves to her.

It wasn’t long before pulling her own weight meant treating the injured and spying for the gang. She became more and more intertwined with the gang’s affairs, and fell more and more out of contact with her brother, and soon she was almost one of them. Lost in the struggle for survival and power. She almost forgot the reason why she was even countries away from her hometown, out and fighting in the world. But then she came along Aleister, where she found her brother, and suddenly she was home again. The magical town’s aura relaxed her and her mission came back to her clearly. It was hard to break away from the gang, after months of living and fighting alongside the girls but she had to find her own magical path from there on.

Little did she know, her struggle to survive was long from over. With the darkness seeping into Aleister, it’s only a matter of time before things really go wrong.

Wen Lan (文瀾) ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ lana x 19 x female x bisexual x magician
[ abjuration ] ability to release/use energy and matter to create force fields. it requires a great deal of energy to maintain the force field for extended amounts of time and requires immense concentration.
[ earth manipulation ] the ability to create, shape and manipulate elements to do with the earth. she is much stronger in dealing with more earth-centric powers than plant-centric powers.
[ telekinesis ] the ability to influence, manipulate, move inanimate objects with her mind.

[ T ] he first thing someone would say about Lana when describing her would be to make note of her ambition. She has never been content to be second-best, nor to fall. Hers has always been an uphill climb, but she likes it that way because as long as she's going upwards that means she's headed to her destination: the top.

[ S ] he is resourceful, always using her skill set to keep ahead in the game and get where she wants to be. She started with nothing, and now she's a hell of a lot closer to where she wants to be, and it's all thanks to her ability to use the materials she has in order to succeed.

[ O ] ne would truly be a dimwit to underestimate Lana's intelligence. Her tongue is razor-sharp and most do not survive a battle of wits with it. She has survived a long time due to her cunning and cleverness, and they are some of her greatest assets.

[ W ] hen it truly comes down to it, Lana will always save her own skin first. Self-preservation has always been her motto, though she is loyal to a fault to the few she chooses to love. Trust is a very precious thing to her, and she only awards it to a select few. Beneath the image she projects to the world lies a girl who has been hurt and broken too many times to fall for it again.

[ L ] ana discovered her powers at around sixteen. Needless to say the fact that she could make earthquakes and move objects with her mind was quite exciting for the superhero nerd that she was. Her family didn't quite agree.

[ S ] o Lana set off to Alistair on her own. Her journey wasn't as far nor as difficult as some, as she learned to control her powers rather quickly. They didn't help all that much with the journey, it it gave her something to do. And by the time she arrived at Alistair, she was already very good at controlling her powers, unusual for someone of her age.

[ S ] he remained someone in the shadows for her first obligatory year at Alistair. She worked on her powers in secret, working to control them. She wanted to make sure she was the best before she revealed her hand.

[ N ] ow she's one of the most powerful magicians in Alistair, with three powers. She's better at some than others, but she's undeniably one of the best at controlling them. Of course it doesn't hurt to have a little friendly rivalry.

━━━━━━━━( Kɪᴍ Jᴀᴇʏᴏᴜɴɢ ) × ( 17 ) × ( ᴀʟᴇ )━━

The first thing people tend to notice about Kim Jaeyoung is his obnoxiously pink hair, and it's been like this since he'd made a colour-changing potion gone wrong. However, that's not to say this is the only thing worth noticing about him. His height — though he hates it when anyone makes comments about it — is shorter than average, which, coupled with his pink hair, gives him a slight childish appearance, though he is very happy to remind you that he is in fact, almost an adult at the age of 17, thank you very much.

━━( sᴇxᴜᴀʟ ) × ( ᴀɢɪᴄɪᴀɴ ) × ( ʟᴇᴇ ᴊɪʜᴏᴏɴ )━━━━━

However, underestimating Jaeyoung is a huge mistake. A magician, boasting three talents, no less, he has a keen eye for detail and is quite observant. Patience is also one of Jaeyoung's strong suits; being a spell castor and potion creator, it's almost a must for him to be patient. He's a man of few words, and blunt and honest as they come, but his face is extremely expressive, so there's no mistaking what he feels at a particular moment. Though it may not seem like it, Jaeyoung can be fiercely protective of his friends and family, and in rare moments (he hates being said he's weak), his helpful and caring nature shines through.

Jaeyoung came from a moderately well-off town and his parents were able to afford regular kindergarten education for him. However, it was only when Jaeyoung learned how to talk and spoke about what he saw through psychometry when he touched various objects, that his parents realised he had magical powers. Due to the nature of his powers, it wasn't difficult to control, so long as Jaeyoung didn't have too much of a reaction to what he'd seen, and, at the age of 15, his parents sent him to Aleister to receive better magical education.

━━( ᴏᴡᴇʀs )━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

Telepathy ; perception-based with a special knack for memory reading and psychometry.

Potion Creation ; the ability to create beverages that can result in magical effects.

Transmutation ; the ability to transform, alter or transmute matter and energy into anything else.

Best friend ; Though they have completely opposing personalities, their friendship has somehow worked out — mostly Jaeyoung fixing ???'s mess and ??? teaching Jaeyoung to be more relaxed.

QUEEN | 2 comments First Name: DANI (KANDI)
Middle Name: KATE
Last Name: CALIBER

Age: 17
Date of Birth: Early June
Place of Birth: Paris

Nationality: French
Occupation: Painter


HISTORY: Despite being born into Royalty, Dani became tired of its exotic lifestyle, and not to mention toxic with the constant abuse at home, opted out for something more low-key and safer. She faked her suicide at fourteen and now lives life as a magician.

PERSONALITY : Dani does not tolerate those who think of themselves highly. Her fiery spirit often offends people. Because she grew up in an abusive household she appers hostile and aggressive and even more so on the runway. Art was her escape from her secret scars and secret past. She's a low key princess. She's pretty loyal but her alliances change from time to time depending upon her own self-interest or needs. It's rare to see her stick out her neck for anyone other than herself.

"Freak..... Ugly.... Fat.... Weirdo"  


━━━━━━━━━━━━ [ Vee Sky ] ━━━━━━━ (16) ↠ ( Junior ) ↠ ( ♀ ) (Straight )━━━━━━━━


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━Telepathy × Mind Reading + Spell Casting━━━━━━━━━━━━━

  Vee Sky is a very quite person. She is also shy due to her experience at her old school. She never got along with anyone because the students at her school never appreciated her or how she looks. Vee likes the way she looks but feels depressed that no one likes her. She dresses that way to stand out, but she knows its not working. Vee doesn't care much now about her life. Once in a while she would use drugs, but only if she cant handle the pressure she gets from school. Also she would think of how she can put all her problems to an end once in a while.

Vee is also jumpy and always I fear. Hearing peoples thoughts constantly in her head made her this way. She built walls around herself to black those if they could hear her, but she knew she was the only freak. Of course she didn't know she was a magician. She never went to her parents and asked them how. Vee has trust issues, even with her parents. She thought that if she told them what's wrong they'll really think she's crazy and send her off someplace.


  Vee was born on Halloween which was quite weird. But she grew up to two caring parents. Everything seemed great, at first of course. But when Vee was six she had a sister named Katie. That's when her parents started to forgot about her. How could anyone resist a cute baby over a six year old? They started to spend most of their time with the baby and not with her. That was only that start of her problem.

After a few years when Vee was twelve, starting seventh grade, she got a new look. It was a way for her to express her feeling, and white hair was the start. Already being quite and always thinking, Vee was now left alone, depressed. The thing was, the girls in her school were girly - since she came from a small town with a small population - but she wasn't. She got weird looks going down the hallway and hear whispers every time she entered the bathroom, except they were never whispers. She didn't know that at first. After hearing people whisper - actually hearing their thoughts- Vee started to become paranoid. Each night she stayed up thinking and hating herself and that's when her anxiety started. And what made it worse was she couldn't go to her parents about it.

Later on starting highs school and by then Vee became anorexic, and bulimic because roomers of her being fat, ugly and worthless. But even though she wasn't liked, she got herself a nose piercing, thinking that maybe they would like it and that it would cheer her up. But she ended up wrong. Now she became the schools freak. Now she was really a loner. Growing up she would hear the same words. freak..... Ugly.... Weirdo but she heard them when no one was talking. Later on she would walk into the hallway all alone while everyone was in their classes. I wonder what's for lunch.... Oh god he's looking at me... What the fuck is this? .... I wonder who I'll bang today...

At age fifteen, grade tenth, Vee had started to cut and take drugs. She couldn't sleep anymore because of the thinking people. She would hear her parents thoughts, which was when she concluded she could hear thoughts due to having them think of something and speaking right after words. It scared her. It really made her feel like a freak. Sometimes she would stress so much that she would have a panic attack where she would have trouble breathing while crying. Her wrist were left with scars and her health became weaker. Her parents started to notice changes but she always blocked them out. Every night she would hear thoughts. They would come and go. Cut off at certain parts and stay for hours. That year Vee was asked out by a boy named Jake for the Halloween dance, also her birthday. Driven out of her mind with all the happiness Vee went to prepare for her date.

That night Vee made her way into the gym that was decorated in a scary theme. Her dress moved against the fog and the music blasted from the speakers. Was this a dream come true? The faint light lit up her way and she saw jake. Just then her smile faded as she saw him with a girl. Then everyone broke into laughter. That day she really became broken. She ran away to her house and locked herself in her room, the words still hunting her. Did you really believe me? Your a freak! Why would I want to go out with you?

The next day Vee woke up in the hospital after her attempt in killing herself. She didn't speak to anyone or eat anything. Why don't I just die? She thought to herself. She regretted not drinking enough pills the first time. End the pain, glancing at the open bathroom door where the words came from, Vee got up and made her way. After that everything became a blur. All she remember was the blood on the floor and broken glass from a mirror in her hand. A few weeks passed and Vee was home. She had heard the pity thoughts of the nurses and those who would pass by her. They thought she was crazy. She would hear the thoughts of her parents who were constantly tired of this. She was too, and because of that she ran away. She needed to find a place, she knew there had to be some place better. She ran first into the woods, where she would get away from civilization and their thoughts.

Vee managed to survive, some how. She alternated between towns and the woods, it being her escape. She barely managed to find anything to eat, not that she minded. Each night she would cry, wanting to kill herself. But something kept telling her she was almost there. Where? She didn't know. She could feel it as she kept traveling. Even on her own, she discovered spell casting. For some odd reason, when she was almost killed by a bear she managed to change it into a bird. How? She was unsure.

Not long after did she stumble to Aliester. It's the place she's been looking for. But even there, Vee didn't feel welcomed.

@queen:, ahh i'm so sorry, i've been super busy these past two weeks. there are a few things i'd like you to adjust before i approve your chara.

1) first of all, there is a 2 paragraph minimum on the personality since this is an advanced roleplay and I expect a bit of complexity on the descriptions of and analysis of characters.

2) could you elaborate in the royalty part? other than the magical fictional elements which have been added to this universe, it is completely concurrent and parallel to the world we live in-- please be a bit more specific!

3) last, i would just like to clarify that in this world, almost all magicians are born into magical families and do not simply become magicians. there are very powerful families with magical blood within them and I am fine with that, but please readjust your history so that your character aligns with the nuances of the universe.

other than that, lovely character and so sorry to keep you waiting!
