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

When not at school, he wears a green windbreaker over a lightblue, light gray, and dark gray striped shirt, blue jeans, and normal sneakers. He has hazel eyes and pale skin. He also has a scar on his left knee from slipping and falling on concrete whilst young. He tends to never wear shorts because of it. He is 5' 7" and weighs 121 pounds.

​Alternate Appearance:​ When James uses his Persona, he exchanges most of his normal clothes for a golden robe that goes to his ankles, instead of normal shoes he has sandals. Old school leather sandals at that. He also gains hair that mirrors that of Heimdall's by going down to his back, messy as can be.

​Personality:​ James tends to be a leader rather than a follower. And once he has found a plan to follow he'll stick with it unless he is forced to change it. He dislikes not having a schedule set in stone. He tries to be as courteous as possible, but tends to yell when he gets upset, disregarding any previously given courtesy.

​The Background

​History:​ James hails from a small town in Georgia. His mother came from Japan, and his father eventually learned Japanese from her. They both, eventually, got married, and had a child. A son to be specific. That son's name was James. James grew up in a household that, whilst mostly using English, slowly taught him Japanese. He went to multiple elementary and middle schools as a child, never staying at one for more than a year due to his father's job moving him around constantly. When he was 12 his mother moved back to Japan to care for her aging parents. Of course the whole of the family was upset by this, but they stayed in touch over the Internet. Hoping to be one day reunited.

Now, we skip ahead to the here and now. James has recently moved with his family to Endymion. His mother having gotten the offer of running a small hardware store. James, his brother, and his father moved to Endymion to be with his mother. James was... Not too happy about this. But eventually accepted it with the reasoning of 'Welp. Wanted to see the world. Now here I go. Plus, I get to see mom again!' He has one younger brother, of whom he is very protective. Once, a group of children pushed his little brother off the playground at one of the schools they went to. Suffice to say, they didn't do it again. No one did. He currently is in his third year of High School. And is about to begin his first day in this new one, finally reunited with his mother.

Ok so most of your application looks good.

-For your appearence,you also gotta add a few things like height, weight, the usual staples. For the alternate appearence could you describe it a little more as well? What is this hair like heimdalls?

-Could you detail how big your soulbound weapon is, also could you detail how LONG your shotgun is?

-Strengths and weaknesses look fine, but we'd appreciate you going in depth a little more with them. Maybe add a few words or details to some of them.
