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<-

More to come

PostSubject: Nebula Erlang [NC] [Endy]   Thu Oct 27, 2016 10:32 pm


Nebula Erlang
"Please, save your pep talk for somebody who deserves it."



The Biography


Birth Name: Nebula Renata Erlang
Aliases: Lang, IronGrip (Internet Alias)
Gender: Female
Age: 24
Birth Day: May 19th
Arcana: The Hanged Man
Place of Residence: Sunlake Palms
Evoker: TBD
Academy Semester: N/A
Class: N/A
Sorority: N/A
Part/Full Time Job: Comission Artist

Appearance:

The best word to decribe Nebula's overall appearance would be "defeated". She stands at one hundred and sixty nine centimeters tall (or five foot six inches), yet weights only a hundred and four pounds. She bears light blue eyes, pure blonde hair which she wears in a bun, and pale skin. Her otherwise noticeable collarbones and hipbones, courtesy of her undernutrition, are hidden by her nearly-full-body outfit consisting of knee-high brown leather boots, light grey jeans, a dark brown short over-skirt and belt, white hooded undershirt and a brown waist-length jacket bearing the icon of a band or sports team she doesn't even know, which she wears purely out of convenience and lack of alternatives. Though her intensions are rarely ever malicious, a smile is the last thing you will ever see on her face.

Personality: Defeatist, pessimist, depressive, downer, negative, buzzkill, nervous wreck, the very incarnation of unhapiness... these are all terms that accurately describe Nebula. Though she is determined to not let it show, her life is a constant cycle of the same hoping things will eventually get better; A fact that she hides to the best of her extent with her almost exaggerated politeness, patience and submissiveness. Though she will give out compliments and best wishes out like a parent gives out candy on Halloween night, she will, in turn, negate all those which are thrown her way, believing herself to be unworthy of them.

Nebula has chronic thoughts of contemplating suicide, but her own fear of death prevents her from taking her own life, and her fear of the outside world prevents her from doing anything productive with it. This leaves her in a limbo-like state of existance, where she is too afraid to do most anything productive with herself, though this doesn't mean that she didn't wish she could. In fact, Nebula is incredibly creative, and one of the few joys she experiences in life is getting to draw whatever's on her mind on the pages of her sketchbook; Ironically, drawing pictures of disturbing, haunting creatures and scenarios eases her mind and allows her to forget her troubles, if even for a little while.

In regards to other people, let it not be said that Nebula doesn't try her hardest to befriend them. "Politeness, kindness and generosity before all else." would be her unspoken motto, which she most likely developped from the guilt that overcomes her whenever she reaches the conclusion that she's at fault for anything negative or harmful. Unfortunately, her unwavering determination to be as least bothersome as humanly possible to anyone and everyone means she's a bit of a pushover, and doesn't properly know when it's time for her to stand her ground.


 
The Potential
   


Strengths:

Strength Name: Survivor
Description: Despite the flimsy paper-thin composition of her body and mind, Nebula's soul has the trait of becoming resilient when her truest desire is to survive what's to come. When Nebula guards, the damage she recieves is reduced by 75% as opposed to the regular guarding reduction of 50%.

Strength Name: Hopeful
Description: The traits of Nebula's soul reflect her undying wish that someday, sometime, everything in her life will take a turn for the better; an ideal of hope that she always keeps an open spot in her heart for. Nebula can be healed up to a 115% of her Max HP, though only during battle, and the extra HP dissipates after said battle ends.

Strength Name: Bound To Life
Description: There is something that Nebula can't quite explain about herself... but, no matter how much she may or may not long for it, death seems to skirt around her most of the time. All attacks that Nebula recieves have 10% less chance of being a critical hit (After luck buffs/debuffs) (Cannot remove the base 10% chance of critical hit).

Strength Name: Creative
Description: Perhaps one of Nebula's only redeeming qualities is the fact that to her, creative and verbal expression comes with extreme ease. All points Nebula gains towards Expression are doubled.

Strength Name: Patient
Description: Though it's not particularly hard to hurt or maim her feelings, Nebula will always grace whomever she crosses paths with with the politeness, kindness and generosity that a mother shows her children, unless that certain someone is a seriously malevolent person.

-----

Weaknesses: (You must have the same amount of weaknesses as strengths. These weaknesses pertain to you and not your Persona. IE: Physically Weaker, lack of attention span, etc.)

Weakness Name: Peccatophobic
Description: Though Nebula is capable of damaging, ailing and doing combat with enemies in any other manner of ways, she is fatally afraid of killing. Nebula alone cannot bring enemies any lower than 1 HP.

Weakness Name: Pushover
Description: Nebula's fragile mind has quite a few effects on her behaviour; one of the most important being that she cannot in good conscience hit anyone too hard with any physical object, as it brings up bad memories. Nebula is incapable of landing critical hits with her soulbound.

Weakness Name: Coward
Description: Despite her cold, distant resting face and deep voice, Nebula would probably run away in fear if you pit her against a common street dog. While inflicted with the "Fear" ailment, Nebula is incapable of doing anything except guarding.

Weakness Name: Negative
Description: Though she has the potential to become braver and outgrow her own personal fears. Nebula's mind is stuck in a constant state of self-deprecation that prevents her from doing so. All points Nebula gains towards Courage are halved.

Weakness Name: Depressive
Description: No matter how hard Nebula tries to cheer herself up by telling herself lies about her past and what hapened and what's to come, it's clear that what's afflicting her mind has long since crossed the line between simple moodiness and clinical depression.

-----

Soul Bound Weapon:

Weapon Name: Karma
Weapon Description: Karma takes the form of a two meter long Executioner's Axe, its edge dirtied by the dry, crusty blood of an unkown source. The hilt is made of dark, oaken wood, and the edge is made of pure, stainless platinum-white steel that contrasts with the grim darkness of the blood that decorates it.

Weapon Attack Type: Slash
Weapon Element: N/A

Side-Arm Weapon:

Side-Arm Name: Punishment
Side-Arm Description: Punishment appears to be a sawed-off shotgun of a shade of black so intense that the only thing about it that can be distinguished with the naked eye is its silhouette. The details, borders, and depths are indistinguishible due to the absolute black that the shotgun consists of.
Side-Arm Attack Type: Gun
Side-Arm Style: Shotgun - Scatter Shot - Accuracy is decreased by 30%. Consumes 3 types of ammo at once to fire -must be same type of ammo. Can shoot all enemies with one attack.



The Background
   


History:
Nebula Renata Erlang was born to her mother Eurydice Erlang, a member of the relatively high-class Erlang family, and her father William Renata, a war veteran whom Nebula's mother had fallen in love with and married on the fast-paced timespan of two years. Perhaps it was pure genetics, or perhaps it was a side-effect of her sheltered upbringing, but Nebula grew up a silent, reclusive and quiet child. Despite this, her grades in school were exceptional, her family was united and happy, and her circle of close, equally introverted friends kept her company when she most needed it. Life was good.

Unfortunately, eighteen years after Nebula's birth, the fateful day of the Eternal Divide rolled around when Nebula's mother, as a high-ranking detective, had been assigned to investigate an international murder case in Endymion. She perished, along with millions of other people, and both her daughter and husband were beyond devastated. The other members of the Erlang family, having never much approved of William, kicked him and Nebula out of the Erlang household, forcing them to move out and change home cities entirely; a situation which in turn forced Nebula to unwind the close circle of intimate friends that she had knit so tightly and depended on so desperately.

In the following months father and daughter spent in their new shoddy, shambling, lamentable apartment (Courtesy of William's utter lack of funds), Nebula and her father grew colder and more distant every day, until eventually the distance turned into resentiment, and resentiment turned into severe abuse. This abuse ranged from physical to psychological to even economical and, had it gone on any longer than it did, possibly would've even evolved into sexual abuse. Thankfully, however, one day Nebula decided that she'd had enough, and confronted her father about the severe change a few months had imposed on him. The argument became heated, then it turned violent, and then...

Nebula, in the heat of the moment, grabbed a nearby steel ornament and hit William over the head with it. Her father dropped to the ground, cold and unmoving. In the span of a single year, Nebula had lost her mother, her family, her home, her circle of friends, her dignity, and now she had taken her own father away from herself.

Nebula turned herself into the police and confessed on the spot. Her trial resulted in a conviction of voluntary manslaughter, which, due to various factors and the situation in which the crime had been perpetrated, imparted five full years of prison upon Nebula.

During her time in prison, one would logically assume that Nebula grew to become hardened and durable, but instead her mental wounds only opened further, and she began to consider the cruel, inhuman actions of the other convicts locked in with her just as bad as her own. It was here that Nebula truly developped her own sick opinion of herself.

Five years have passed since then, and Nebula has been once again let out into the outside world on parole. However, everyone she used to know she either can't get a hold of or has alienated her, and she cannot for the life of her find anybody who would hire her. She had been forced to start life over again, but branded as the scum of the earth for all to see.

Currently, Nebula lives on her own in a run-down little apartment with barely enough basic amenities, and she draws artistic commissions on the internet as her main source of income. Despite the fact that she is now at least able to live out the rest of her days in peace, Nebula yearns and hopes that one day, somehow, a chance to redeem herself presents itself to her.

Well done, though I'd like to lower the Extra Health down to a 10% maybe 15% health at most. 25% is too much for a strength.

When it comes to your critical avoidance strength, make sure to note that it can't bypass the latent 10% chance to crit that everyone has.

Finally, you need to have a SQ Related Weakness. Since you excel in Expression, another SQ needs to be hindered somewhat.

That should be it. Let me know when you've made these changes.

Just give her the Class Color, and then it's Approved. *Stamps*
