RP icons

Okay, I have an icon question: are portrait-maker icons (like the above) allowed for character icons? For those of us who don't own scanners? I know you're supposed to use your own art, but unless you want a trackball stickfigure, this is the best I can get right now.

Okay, so maybe it's not that urgent or anything, buuuuuut I think it's important for me to clarify something I failed to clarify before, and that is character location. Setting. For now I'm just going to assume that everyone lives in the same area, and since I believe (I could be wrong here, so correct me if I am) that Farai is the only character to date with a firmly established location, I think that'd be a good place to start. So shall we just assume that everyone is living in New York, then? He lives in the city, sooo...yeah. Let's start there. :) Unless anyone has any objections, of course. I'm open to other suggestions.

Comments are appreciated! I actually love to hear what you guys have to say about things. ^^

(Thanks to acanti and otoselkie for bringing this to my attention. <3)

Edit: Changed the application a bit, but nothing too radical. Just to make this Sara/Reflex thing less confusing ^^; Hope it worked! [/edit]

I'm thanoodles! Before you kill me, please read the "Anything Else" :x I'll delete the other application thingy if I get acceptance to this one ^^;;

To make this a bit less confusing, I'll try to separate things (one for Sara and another for Reflex: her persona)

Hey kiddies! It's hipthrust, in case you were wondering. ^^ otoselkie gave me the idea to create a journal specifically to rp from, so here it is! I'll eventually have an icon for all three of my characters (yes, I will have three characters, as potentially disastrous as that sounds), and I'll be making all my roleplay posts here under this name, so I'll be using a different icon for each character I use. (For example, if I decide to make a post about Farai, I'll post with this icon *points*, and if I decide to post as Kara or Freya, then I'll use their icons...once I make them, that is. ^^;;)

So yeah. We'll just see how long I can stand logging out of my journal and logging back into this one just to post rp posts here will last. HA. Yeah, I'm impatient. I'll get over it. I think.

Anyways, just a brief little announcement. I'm off now. Night kiddies. ^^

PS - Feel free to start roleplay any time you'd like! Just because I'm not around/making rp posts doesn't mean you can't. Roleplay away!

PPS - I'm looking for a co-mod to review and pass verdicts on apps, preferably someone who has some rping experience and is online more than me. I'm thinking Rave or Noodles? I dunno, I'm just going to be extremely busy over the next week or so, and I'm not sure how much attention I'll be able to pay to my baby, so I think I'll need someone to fill in for me. Thanks!

Application to Join: Mutant

Personal Info
| Name: Annagen Eva
| E-mail:

Character Info:
| Name: Sophie Matheson

| Age: 15

| Mutant Powers: Sophie can absorb objects into her body by touching them and then disgorge them later. She carries their weight, however, so she can’t absorb anything she is not strong enough carry. She can also push her hands into objects, use them to anchor herself, but no farther than her wrists.
| Codename: None.

| Affiliation: None as of yet. She would probably join one of approached, though.

| Physical Description: Fairly pale skin, shoulder-length brown hair that she usually ties in a braid, plain face with a flat nose, and brown eyes. Can usually be seen wearing jeans and a tee-shirt (even in winter) and a multicolored polar fleece when the weather is cool enough. Sophie is thin for her age, and, while I wouldn't describe her as muscular, she's strong enough.

| Personality: Extremely shy. Sophie is very quiet, and isn’t likely to be the first to speak in any situation. However, once she had decided on someone she will trust them without reserve – something that could easily get her into trouble. She could easily be manipulated by a friend or someone in authority (i.e. an older classmate) that she trusts. She will follow almost any lead. Sophie can keep her head in a tense situation, and she’s resourceful as well as a fast thinker. Strategy is beyond her though, I’m afraid, as are politics (at least when she herself is involved). Sophie has very little concept of the fact that she can be manipulated, and so would be an easy target. I could completely see her being tricked into doing something stupid or going onto ‘the other side’.

| NPCs: Father, brother and mother.

| History: Sophie grew up with her father, a University physics professor, and her brother, William. Her parents are divorced, and her mother, Margaret, lives nearby, working as a magazine editor. William and Sophie are a year apart in age and very close. Sophie lives with her father, but sees her mother on weekends. Sophie passed through elementary school without distinguishing herself academically – though she has always excelled at art.
At the age of thirteen, Sophie discovered she was a mutant when a she accidentally absorbed a pencil. Since then she has learned how to un-absorb objects, but not how to keep herself from absorbing them. She has accidentally pushed her hands into things (leaned on them and then discovered her hands had sunk in), and she can undo that, but again, can’t control it. William knows she is a mutant ever since he walked in on her with her hands stuck in the kitchen table. He is uncomfortable with this, but he cares too much about her to 'out' her secret. Neither of her parents know (yet...)

| Anything Else: I have no previous RPG experience. Ziltch. So please handle with care :). Do I need a separate journal for this? Or a 'Sophie' icon? Anything else you want up there?

Application to join: Mutant

Personal Info
Name: Leiko

Character Info:
Name: Rhea Peitterson
Age: 27
Codename: Kurayami (Darkness, for all intents and purposes)

Mutant Powers: Purple ‘light’ (energy) blasts from hands, but it only affects living beings. She has retractable claws, cat-like eyes that can see in total darkness, fangs, heightened hearing, three times the strength of a normal human of her stature, and a nose that rivals that of most canines. She has the ability to link with her hawk, but can do no more than see through its eyes.

Affiliation: None

Physical Description: Stands at 5’ 5” and has a trim yet muscular build. Though originally pale, her complexion is now somewhat dark, as if she had spent a lot of time in the sun. Her hair is long, reaching the middle of her back, and is black with silver streaks, and has an ‘untamed’ quality. Her eyes are like a cat’s, and vary in color from pale yellow to deep green based on her mood. She has normal human fingernails but, below those, has a set of retractable feline claws which extend to about 1 inch and are creamy white in color. Her ears are pointed but are usually hidden by her hair when in public. Her teeth are somewhat sharper than a normal human’s, but not so as to be noticed by a causal glance.
She usually wears dark colors such as purples and reds. Normally she can be found wearing a skin-tight outfit with a pack on her back, and she also wears a long, animal-print coat. She has a gold hoop earring in her left ear, and a gold chain about her neck from which hangs a small bird pendant. She usually has a bandana tied ‘round her head. She does, of course, wear a special glove on her left hand for her hawk to perch upon.

Personality: She tends to be suspicious of others, and is slow to trust. She’s somewhat antisocial and prefers to work alone, but occasionally makes exceptions. Her memory is not the best, and so she forgets things like names and the time of meetings on a regular basis. This only adds to her suspicious nature. On a deeper level, she is very ethical, if somewhat aggressive and overly willing to kill if she feels the victim deserves it. Once her trust is won, it stays won.

NPCs: trained hawk (bit of a pet; used primarily for spying; doesn’t really have a name)

History: She is the only child of two middle-class parents. Her powers manifested at age 12, starting with heightened senses. Over the course of two years she underwent the physical changes and started showing signs of her more obvious power (i.e. the purple light blast). Her parents, though afraid of these changes, did not love her any less but tried to find a way to make the strange abilities go away. She was home schooled from the time of the first obvious signs of her mutant power and so led a secluded life. Her only real friends were her pets, as her parents didn’t want the neighborhood children finding out that their daughter was ‘different’. Still, she had always been something of a loner so the isolation didn’t bother her much.
At the age of 17 her feral nature began to take over. She started to react more with instinct and less with reason. Realizing that this behavior could prove dangerous to those around her, she ran away from home. Eventually she lost herself deep in the forests and taught herself to control those animalistic urges. While in the woods she came across a hawk’s nest with a single chick in it. Remembering how much she missed her old pets, she took the chick and cared for it. As the chick grew to adulthood, she realized that she could see through its eyes if she concentrated hard enough. She used this new-found power to hunt, and trained the hawk to ‘patrol’, ‘guard’, and ‘spy’. Having spent so much time and effort in training her hawk, she never bothered to see if she could link with any other creatures.
Three years after running away, she was discovered by two poachers when they shot the deer she’d been stalking. Knowing that the men should not be in her territory, she allowed her feral side to take over. The poachers, too stunned to react in time, were killed by her blast of purple energy. The encounter reminded her that there was a world beyond the trees, and that she was lonely. Taking what items she could carry from the dead poachers, she called her hawk and followed the men’s trail back to their truck, and from there rejoined society.
She went on to work as a free-lance assassin, though she made sure to only kill people who deserved it. She hid her powers and dropped her birth name, for fear her parents would find out she was working as a killer for hire. Instead, she now goes by the name she chose for herself.

Anything Else:
I tend to draw things...lots and lots of drawing.
