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

Tykal Mahavari
"From now on, fear will work in my favor!"

The Biography

Birth Name: Tykal Mahavari
Aliases: Crow, Maha
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Birth Day: Aug 23
Arcana: Hermit
Place of Residence: Endymion
Evoker: Mental Shackles
Academy Semester: Third Year
Class: (We'll fill this in once you're approved. This will be your class in school)

Sorority:  Student Government

Part/Full Time Job: Assistant Florist

Appearance:  A tall slender man roughly 6'2" in height and estimated 168lbs in weight. Appearing slightly older than he looks but still maintaining a youthful enough appearance that he can be identified as a student. His untamed hair caressing part of his ears and falling just to the nape of his neck. The mixture of blondes in his hair shielding his brow and drooping towards his cheeks. Through the unkempt strands of his hair sat his emerald colored eyes. A strong light colored blue that blended with the fading green color near the pupil. His long fingers, that were usually kept busy, now slept at his side pointing towards his defined yet slender legs. The boy rarely dressed outside of what was considered proper for someone his age. Khaki pants or slacks with long sleeved collared shirts under vests.

Alternate Appearance: Aside his black feathered masquerade mask, he wear a black suit with a pinstriped vest and matching pants. He wears black dress gloves and black tailored ‘fancy’ boots (if there is such a thing). Around his waste several coils of leather belts with a  black rope with skulls and feathers decorating it as it hangs down to his thigh.  Of course, all this is hidden under a cloak covered in black feathers that disappears when he discards it before battle.

Personality: Tykal is a true gemini with two sides to his personality. On the side he shows prior to his awakening, Tykal  wears a mask of self-confidence because it’s what’s expected of him. He is a role model student and young man with good manners and spending all of his free-time studying or devoting himself to his extracurriculars. He wears modest and professional attire with just enough flare to show his actual age. When it comes to meeting new people outside of the schools influence, he’s rather shy taking some time to open up and tends to say strange things when he’s nervous. His parents and the academic community demand a lot from him. He feels weighed down from stress of appearing this perfect student. In private he’s desperately alone and feels imprisoned in life so as to not disappoint anyone. He can come across as an ass sometimes. He has no tolerance for people who break the rules and take their studies half-heartedly. He acts someone what elitist.

After his awakening Tykal’s repressed personality comes out. No longer feeling chained by his responsibilities or what others may think of him. He acts rash and his mannerisms do a complete 180. He frequently curses and becomes aggressively extroverted. Almost carefree though some of his ‘posh uptight goody two shoes’ attitude does show at time. A frequent lover of fine arts and tea and with the ability to still blend in if needed.  This evolution reflects in his clothing style. He tends to wear more teenage flare on his attire and brighter colors, and even ‘those shirts with memes and logos on them like you see at that trendy store in the mall”. He also is more likely to ditch school functions just because it’s breaking the rules he previously devoted himself to. The most important trait he gains seems to be his defiant stance towards his parents expectations of him.  As if making a statement, he purposely does the opposite of authoritarians demands out of spite.

When it comes to battle, or lord forgive the person who angers him, Tykal is a bit overzealous. Cruel and merciless to his enemies he revels in their fear and suffering and vengeance is his best motivator. He’s been known to say things that make others look at him quite surprised and possibly a bit scared. In addition, it would appear he has quite extensive knowledge of torture methods which he can recite with ghastly detail.

The Background

History: Tykal was born into a somewhat higher caste family. His father a big time politician in a foreign country and his mother popular soap opera actress ( Most people know her by her character’s name, Minata Otamoro, the miracle doctor)  Tykal was privately schooled most of his young life and tailored to basically be a trophy for his parents to use to boost their own social standing. Tykal grew up rarely spending time with his parents. What little time he did spend with them they spent strictly forcing the importance of his behaviors and mannerisms so that he didn’t negatively impact their careers.  Tykal’s closest parental figure growing up was his nanny, Nila.  When Nila passed Tykal took it very hard and in an act of rebellion turned away nearly every nanny his parents hired. Eventually his parents gave in to his proposal to go to a school out of country where not only could his academic success be used to increase his parents social standing but also he’d able to escape the imprisonment of the household.  He had saw how other kids grew up and struggled and insisted that if he were permitted to live on campus he’d learn real world skills and learn to be humble. His parents, whose affections were practically nonexistent, jumped on the idea.

After joining his first year, Tykal quickly rose as one of the teacher's favorites with his study habits and proper manners. He also spent the first two years of school in the Fencing Club. His parents sent him a ridiculous sum of money for a teenager but unknown to them he refused to use it and got a job at a local floral shop. All he wanted was to be normal like the other kids however he had to worry about the drawback of any action he took that may appear unfavorable in his parents eyes.

Things began to pick up during his second year joining the student government and being promoted to assistant florist at the shop. His grades were noted in the top ten percent of his class and gained the attention of a few secondary schools. He began tutoring first year students per request of the principal. He also became a frequent at a local cafe. Sadly he couldn’t shake the refined pallet of high class cuisine.  He studied on how to make a very tasty tea which is now being sold at the shop, under the condition that when he visits, his tea is free.  

This third year however is starting to affect him psychologically. Forcing himself to act like the way his parents and the school body want him to be is taxing and now he’s feeling chained. Regretting having to be ‘perfect’ he seems more detached and his roleplaying has become more obvious with his weak smiles and almost scripted attitude. He spends most of his free time locked away from people so he doesn’t have to interact with anyone outside of school and wallow in his depression.

Explain what sort of politician the Tykal's father is, depending on what he is it will be a-okay. As for the horrid sense of direction weakness, it doesn't make much sense for me, change it so he requires more words to move full speed or moves half the spaces his post normally make him move.
