Right. Ahem. I'm tempted to write something up for this, but I'm doing a rather poor job of keeping up with one RP. Then again, that's more because of my being lethargic and not quite sure what to do at this point than actual time constraints. If there are plans for this one to go places, which there are, I think I might be able to twist my own rubber arm and give myself a kick in the writing rear.

A question about Artes Notatorum, if I may. Could a traditional Notatorum student paint/tattoo/carve sigils on themselves in order to gain the advantages of a tattoo user without the drawback of a two-sigil limit? If not, what prevents this?

Well this one will have a much more defined general direction for your characters, and for the first little while the students won't be venturing off campus all that much either so if anything we can pull some sort of "<character> had to go back to his/her dorm room because they had an assignment due/weren't feeling well, etc."

A traditional Notatorum student could potentially paint/carve sigils on themselves (I don't suggest the latter...as it would be painful...) HOWEVER the sigil only has one use. Basically when a sigil is not tattooed onto their body, when it is used it sort of disappears/burns/fades away. Also, Notatorum users are either too prideful to tattoo themselves, and/or afraid of tattoos in general. They're kind of prudish with their bodies too. Especially since they're like what 13-16. Most parents aren't too fond of children with tattoos at that age.

I have never opted to roll a girl character but there's a first time for everything.

Name: Harper Radisson

Age: 14

Year: 1st

Appearance: She proudly displays her blonde hair in an intertwined lock that reaches her waist. Following this length of hair to to back of her head, it is revealed that it roots from a pony-tail held together by a small length of steel chain. One could say that this interlacing is meant to symbolize the dual souls within her, but she claims that the style is chosen only for the bubbly air that it provides her character. In this regard, she succeeds. Rosy cheeks beneath large green eyes provide a contrast that is simply irresistible among her peers. Her ears poke shyly from beyond the strands of hair that venture from the central braid. Above curved, scarlet lips a button nose sits plainly. Wearing the standard girls uniform, the shirt hangs only slightly too large for her slim torso and the sleeves reach out to shelter the lower half of her palms. Beneath the long sleeves she wears a bracelet made from chain: her first creation of the medium. Despite her seemingly ditsy appearance, the bright green eyes house perhaps more than the huge smile would let on.

Personality: Harper does not give much thought to the supernatural. As spirits have embraced all aspects of her life, communication with them is second nature and not a spot of unease rests in her interactions with them. With people, it is much the same. Social and perky, one can see her butting her way into conversations, a common incident that usually results in her being the center of attention. Despite her love for the compliments that she receives, she expresses a distinct interest in others. Curious and nosy to an extent, she is quite the gossip but is genuinely interested in the plights of others. This leads to her helpful and kind nature that many she encounters find adorable. Those that long for her attention are in little luck, for although she becomes involved in the relationships of others she has little interest in dating. In her endeavors, academic and otherwise, she shows a motivation unparalleled by many, but the goal must strike her passion to reach this fervor.

Biography: Growing up in a rural and poor town, Harper was the daughter of the local blacksmith. As she reached the elementary years, she attended the small school in the town, and after acquiring a basic knowledge of reading, writing, and arithmetic through her elementary education, she was expected to take over the forge and quit school. However, a thirst for knowledge lead her to make the ambitious decision to study her forging and school at the same time. It was after this decision that she began to notice the spectral activity around her. Spirits were at work in all aspects of her life. At first, these visions haunted her dreams and warded sleep but soon the presence of spirits no longer bothered her. Since the onset of her ability to sense the spirits her forgings skills developed tenfold, and the scars and burns on her hands that used to be renewed with each new weapon created were allowed time to heal. Indeed, it seemed she would never be burned again, as any flame that licked her was recoiled and the heat absorbed smoothly. This was the first telling of her supernatural abilities. It was only after a lesson on the Artes Spiritorum in school that she was able to classify her power. But seeing as she could not create ice, the Soul of Ice must be only her minor soul. She shoved wonder of what her major soul could be to the back of her mind and continued her studies until the Soul of Metal manifested itself. While assisting her father in the creation of a rapier, a discussion about the course of her studies got heated. Despite her passion for the forge, she felt that her life could go any direction and that her father had no right to chain her to his own profession. As she shouted her point, a short of length of chain formed around her wrist, leaving both of them in awe. Upon seeing this feat, her father deemed that she was meant for larger things than the work of a village blacksmith. It is so that her father used his savings to apply her to Arclight Academy for the upcoming school year.

Arte: Artes Spiritorum: [None] Soul of Metal is her major soul and she has a Soul of Ice as her minor.

Limits:

Skill(s): Solid knowledge of weapons and weapon creation due to her experience as a blacksmith assistant.

Weapon(s):

What is your stance on firearms? That and realistically, you wouldn't put an airport (let alone an international one) so close to a bunch of tall office buildings. It can only end in tragedy.

I'm sure it's fine as long as you know the ardor sigil.
Can't imagine it would be very practical though.

I can also imagine Notatorum student walking around with a small pad of post-its on person.

Well, here's my second time RPing on this site, hope I didn't mess up like last time....

Name: Johnathan (Johnny) Rickheight

Age: 14

Year: 1st

Appearance: Standing at 6 feet even, Johnathan is indeed smart looking, or at least, that's what people say when they look at him. He has curly sleek black hair and tan skin. However, the most attractive feature about him is his icy blue eyes. He also wears when something is far away. Close up, he can see perfectly fine. He is moderately strong and fit, being exposed to certain things has taken a toll on him. He is rarely seen without his necklace that bears the letters J and R together with the latter hanging on the lower part of the J.

Personality: Doesn't really care what people think of him. Johnathan is generally quiet and won't speak unless he is spoken too. On rare occasions he is known to go in fits of rage for unknown reasons. But only one reason is known, if he sees someone being bullied or mistreated, he immediately springs into action with an effort to help them. If he trusts someone, he will open his heart to someone and become the most talkative person around. If he thinks of someone as a friend he will go out of his way in an attempt to help them out. To outsiders or strangers, he is mean, rude and is very sneer to people, which hinders his ability to make friends often. He only cares about himself and other people he considers friends. He also takes time and thinks of a solution to a problem and is very level-headed in any situation.

Biography: Previously attending LakeWood Elementary, Johnathan was wishy-washy. Taking an interest of mathmatics, Johnathan was almost famous, he got good grades and all the teachers and students liked him. That all changed over a short period of time.
His father, James Rickheight, and his mother Linda Rickheight were both extremely rich. James, a really heavy drinker, was a doctor at the local hospital and Linda was a female police officer and volunteered at a firefighter station from time to time, but mainly her money comes from past inheritances. Both wanted Johnathan to be successful like the both of them.
Johnathan, confused, goes on without an insight on what he wants to do.
One day, his father gets really intoxicated. Johnathan, who doesn't know, finally admits that he has no clue on what he wants to do. James then gets extremely upset, drags Johnathan outside where the locals are having an outdoor party to celebrate the first day of spring. Ignoring the neighbors, James beats Johnathan relentlessly.
Ever since then, James has been regularly abusing Johnathan and calling Johnathan worthless. After that experience, Johnathan's grades then goes up more then ever to prove the opposite his father. Now Johnathan begins to develop strange habits. His friends notice him reading more and more mystery books. Noticing Johnathan's grades, and eventually finding out about all the beatings, Linda then ships Johnathan off to the Academy to clear his mind.

Arte: Arte Notatorum. Sigils, eventually memorized: Veritas, Arx, Constuare, Fragor and Muto

Limits:

Skill(s): Witty, smart. After what happened with his father, Johnathan has developed exceptionally good lying skills.

Weapon(s):

Name: Xhu Chen Li (Most people will call him Li)
Age: 16
Year: 3rd
Appearance: Li is of average height but is more physically fit that most. His black hair is short and sticks up near the front, but falls over to the side at the tips. His dark brown eyes are covered by a pair of square shaped glasses.
Personality: Li is very calm and appears outwardly cold. Due to this, he is distant from most people until they get to know him. When one is good friends with Li, he opens up much more and acts quite cheerful around them.
Biography: Li was the oldest of three children born into an upper class family living in an condominium directly behind Tea Tyme. They only accepted the highest class of education for their children. From the moment Li was allowed in school, he was sent to Ephraim Elementary to study. He achieved top marks in all of his classes and graduated with honors.

When Li moved over to Arclight Academy, his trend continued, keeping high marks in his classes. Some would describe Li as that guy who doesn't try and still gets the best marks. On the contrary, Li was always up studying and was scared what his parents would do to him otherwise. When his youngest brother didn't meet their standards, he was whipped twenty times on the back. Li could only remember the screams of his brother from that moment.

When the fatal crash happened, Li's marks started to drop. Many of his friends were on that bus and Li felt as if a part of him died. He was much more quiet that usual around others, but seemed to show no emotion. With his marks falling lower than usual, Li was scared of what his parents would do, so he used this as motivation to bring himself back up from his state of depression.

In Arclight Academy, Li hones his martial arts while increasing his knowledge on exorcism with little time for extracurricular.
Arte: Artes Fluunt, the Way of the East
Limits:
Skill(s): Li is quite athletic from his martial arts training. He is also very good at staying calm in dire situations.
Weapon(s):
Roommate:

Think I got everything right.


Nevermind, forgot to put his reaction to the crash

Wow Kerim, way to steal both of my souls. I wanted to make a cold, calculating hall monitor, dagnabbit.

Name: Lukas Barkellner

Age: 14

Year: 1st

Appearance: He's got a healthy enough build, slightly taller than most people his age, and slightly stronger too. He's got curly blonde hair, light blue eyes, and his posture is usually pretty relaxed. Not much of note, here, really. Despite his strength, he doesn't seem very muscular unless he has his shirt off or something, usually wearing baggier clothing. Does his

Personality: His relaxed posture seems to suggest he's pretty relaxed about things, which would be pretty accurate. But that's only because he already knows what to expect, how to subvert it, and how to manipulate events to put himself at the advantage. Speaking of which, he's very manipulative. Unlike others of his Arte, he's much more subtle in his rebellious nature, preferring to have others do his dirty work for him, or at least only do things he's sure he can pull off. Even then, he's perfectly aware that he kinda has to do what others tell him, so he simply plans to wait until he's eighteen years of age to do anything too big. Still, his definition of 'too big' is more like 'overthrowing governments', so... well, nobody can say he isn't ambitious. He tends to view others as 'inferior', or at least 'of lower intellect'. If anyone were to uncover the mask, they'd find him monologuing to himself like a stereotypical villain, being both very full of himself and very melodramatic.

Speaking of said mask, it's very, very different from the person behind it. Charismatic, friendly, outgoing, and extremely loyal. Still not much for rules, he'll rebel in a more joking manner, but still do whatever it is he needed to, if with some hesitation. He's almost a completely different person; one could swear he had some kinda split personality or something. Not that Lukas would ever admit it, but this person is who he would desire to be if he didn't know that morals would get in the way of his goals. He kinda enjoys being this person, actually, but uses him to further his goals anyway.

...One more important note; he's at least slightly addicted to alcohol, specifically wine, though he's not stupid enough to show up to school drunk. Usually. But barging into his house will reveal a very drunk, legitimately friendly Lukas, who will then insist that you have some sekt. And then he'll play Fur Elise.

Biography: Lukas lived in Germany until recently, his parents being very, very rich. They owned a chain of bars - Das Tabu der Gerechten Tasse - across several countries, specializing in German wine. They weren't home very often, usually at some meeting or other. Of course, he had several people to watch over him, but it... wasn't quite right. Even they were often too busy to pay attention. His education there was spent in two different schools, the first one a nice private catholic one. Unfortunately, it burnt down soon after Lukas joined. The other was slightly humbler, but still very nice, but then his stay in Germany was cut short when his parents died in a plane crash. The will stated he was to taken care of by his uncle, who lived in the city of Darren, until he was old enough to run the company. The uncle would teach him all he knew, including english (though it would take a while) while he went back to school at Eraphim Elementary.

There, he would take an interest in the piano, as well as acting, wrestling and... gardening. Especially viticulture, probably because of its connections to winemaking, but still. Gardening. He didn't know why, but he really liked it. Perhaps his friends would tease him about it, but he didn't really care. And then, with several friends, he would go to Arclight Academy. After all, it was close enough to home...

Arte: Artes Naturae, Wood. He has no idea 'bout it, so far.

Limits:

Skill(s): A very, very good actor, and liar in general. Pretty good leadership abilities. He's also a decent wrestler, and can rock a piano like it's never been rocked before... when he's drunk.

Weapon(s):

Roommate:

<3333 Gonna read these as soon as I run in and out of the shower.

Also. I didn't anticipate the Notatorum being this popular >.>

In the event that Thai wants to be one as well, I will allow it, but no more otherwise. Also no firearms. HOWEVER, if this kid happens to be trained in some sort of hunting rifle or something relatively believable that can be dreamed up, I'd be ok with it. Just, no weapons yet.

And >.> the airport was just one of those things that were like"...oh crap...should probably have one of those" and bam.

Well of course Notatorum would be popular. You get a very diverse group of abilities, out of which you get to choose five. And on top of that, they can be used in conjunction.
