Current Events
Updated: 8/18/2017

Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, is underway! We also have our sideplot taking place called Junction! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our sideplot, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Junction plot is CWIS and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Godai and Grantus.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Be sure to constantly check the update thread for any changes to the boards. You can find it ->Here<-

Athena Griva



"Prestige, power, wealth they're nothing else but means to an end, survival is that end"


The Biography





Birth Name: Athena Griva
Aliases: Princess_Pink (online username)
Gender: Female
Age: 18
Birth Day: 20th November
Arcana: Aeon Arcana
Place of Residence: Sunlake Palms
Academy Semester: Third Semester
Class: (We'll fill this in once you're approved. This will be your class in school)

Sorority: Managers Club

Part/Full Time Job: Works part time as a model

Appearance: A beautiful face along with a healthy and well developed body make Athena a rather attractive young woman who looks slightly older than her actual age. She's taller than the average girl standing at 170 cm but she only weight 55 kg, due to those proportions Athena is able to work as part time model. She has long pink straight hair she usually wears loose and pink bright eyes. Her complexion is almost spotless and just by looking at her skin one realizes that she takes care of herself.

In terms of attire Athena favors fashionable clothes and seems to like revealing pieces more. During school hours she makes sure not to dress too lewdly even though her school clothing can still be considered revealing for the prude-type of people it's generally acceptable.  

Personality:
When Athena sees something she wants she reach out and take it. She doesn't care if in the process she might hurt someone's feelings she is eager to live a good life and if the prize of it is to stab a friend in the back then she's willing to pay it. She has a cynic belief about the world and dismisses the ideals of friendship and love as childish and unimportant. Athena generally believes that she can be happy through material means and cares little of emotions.

Athena hardly reveals her true colors, she's not emotionless but she feels safer behind her "mask". She relies on her looks and natural charisma to make friendships but most of them are fake and shallow simply to keep up appearances, Athena herself doubts the existence of love and friendship and discards them at something frivolous for the simple minded people. She possess extremely high emotional intelligence (EQ), she's good at "reading" people and understanding their emotions and desires easier than the average person.

That girl over there looks too confident, it would be bad if someone commented on that mole she's been trying to hide, that man doesn't pay much attention to Athena?

Strength Name: Mistress of the game

The Background
   




History:

The world is a cruel place, Athena knows it all too well. In this life people can be separated into two categories: those few who have power and status and those who provide resources for the elite. That was always the way the world worked, only those who were willing to fight with any means necessary had any chance of climbing higher than their social status.

The Grivas family was unfortunately part of the mass, Athena's father, Pavlos, was a police officer while her mother, Elisavet, was a working as a scientist for the government. Even though her parents' jobs were respectful their salary was not enough to live a very comfortable life and things only got more difficult when Athena and her twin brother, Achileas were born. Athena and her brother only spent seven years in Greece though, her family then moved to a place which would be known as Endymion in the future.

The reason behind their moving was her mother receiving a job offer from the Uneo Group. Even though her mother was always vague about what her employers requested from her the job itself paid way too much to refuse and thus the Grivas left Greece forever. The life in their new home was peaceful, and even boring from time to time, they would go to school, take walks at the park, they were even invited for diner at the Uneo mansion. Happiness was all around Athena's life who fancied herself a fairy tale princess at that time, she wished for something exiting to happen but what followed made her regret her wish.

The Eternal Divide. That was the name given to the catastrophe that made the whole world tremble and what eventually caused the rise of Endymion but it was also the day when Athena realized that fairy tale princess were too fragile for this world, in order to survive in this new order she had to first kill her princess. It wasn't easy, she wanted to believe that the world was kind but as the chaos prevailed she came to understand better the true face of the human nature.

When Isla Lamecia named herself queen Athena determinate that she was her best chance of survival and so she joined the ranks of the cadets. But being a plain cadet wouldn't be enough to satisfy her, the new world was an unforgiving place and if she wanted to live happily in it she had to first amass even more power, enough so even the queen would think twice before moving against her.

A nice blast from the past for me. Is this the same athena from SR?

A couple of things here. First and foremost, your soulbound, being creatures, you need to have a strength that allows you to control them. Also, give the bees an effective range from which they can remain active, and under your control.

As for the Weaknesses and strengths, to counteract your extra turn of Ailments, you'll need to have something last 1 extra turn on you, like Debuffs, or some such. Your pick, but 10% less damage dealt doesn't justify the 1 extra turn you get for Ailments. Also, give me length of your Rose bow, and it's range, should it be necessary to add, then do so.

Other than that, everything else checks out. Make sure to add a weakness to your Soulbound Controlling Strength, should you pick that one.

Given how generic ailment wise your strength is, you'd need to make the weakness just as generic. Other than that, it looks fine to me.

It's good to see you again, Athena.

An Update from Term. Your side-arm has to be a form of gun, or any other kind of fire-arm that consumes actual bullets. It's a slight technicality which I was unaware of before Term told me. Make the due change, and I'll re-approve Athena. Sorry for any inconvenience I might've caused you.

The Changes look fine. 10 meters is acceptible for a hand-gun in a combat scenario, given how much you'll be moving around. Approved.

Something I just noticed. You have 4 Combat Strengths, yet only 3 Combat Weaknesses. I'd like you to stick to three Combat Strengths. Just remove the 10% Chance to inflict rage with some social strength. (Like being able to tell if someone's lying by reading their body language or some such). Think of something that could be a useful trait to have.

Hypnosis, although interesting, feels more like Human Skill Territory. You could make the Strength related to it, like the actual commands and knowledge of it, but actually hypnotizing someone like a Player Character or NPC demands a Skill for it to work. Gael had a Human Skill working in conjunction with a strength of his to make his "Hypnosis" work. Other than that, it looks fine. On general pedestrians and such, you could hypnotize them without much effort... Note that human skills are not restricted to just be combat oriented things.
