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

Kenneth Paak


Council Member by day, Street Punk by night.


The Biography


Birth Name: Kenneth Paak
Aliases: Paak
Gender: Male
Age: 16
Birth Day: November 6th
Arcana: Hanged Man
Place of Residence: Endymion City: Little Tokyo
Evoker: Mental Shackles
Academy Semester: Second
Class:

Sorority:  In accordance to the 'Looking Glass-Self' concept, there are two sides to Kenneth. There's the him that couldn't care less about participating in school activities.. then there is the him influenced by who his parents and fellow classmates expect him to be. The latter has pushed him to join both the Athletics Club (Basketball Team) and the Student Government as a member of the discipline committee.

Part/Full Time Job: His official source of income are odd jobs along the Tokyo Strip. He has long since been pulled into some less than legal acts on the strip at night, primarily based around acting as a runner for a minor drug lord in the area. He's not proud of it, but it helps pay the bills since his father is unable to work.

Appearance: Kenneth is a somewhat pale teenager who stands above average height (around 6 feet) for those in his age range. Because of his many year in athletics, he has molded himself into an athletic build (165 pounds) - a great improvement from the scrawny, slender kid that used to lose fights in the Tokyo Strip. His eyes are the color of a sunflower's petals at the start of its decline, and there are always heavy bags under his eyes due to a chronic lack of sleep.

An unbuttoned blazer is worn inside of the academy while his normal street attire revolves around a pastel Letterman jacket with an odd red oni-button clipped over the letter. Kenneth's facial expressions range from 'Please don't talk to me' to 'I don't really want to be here' and rarely venture outside of this comfort zone. Several tattoos litter his body, though they are covered by his casual clothing for the most part.

Alternate Appearance: Paak's street punk alter-ego comes to light with his alternative appearance. A futuristic ruby-red oni mask covers his face from the base of his nose up and a smokey white plating covers his upper body from the mouth down. Similar to a skull, the eye sockets seem to be a pitch black void.. until his opens his eyes to populate the space with a set of menacing yellow diamonds with pupils in the center. This armor extends down to his waist, at which point a pair of tight pants the same color as the top half of the mask takes over.
Alternate appearance reference:
 

Personality: As one might expect if they got to see him at school and at 'work', there are two sides to Kenneth. The stoic but dedicated honor student acting as a member of the DC to help the students, and the tough-guy street punk that has been somewhat hardened and jaded by his less than fair experiences in the streets. Because of this, he's somewhat approachable at school and a bit standoffish otherwise. His main love is anime and manga, a hobby that has lead him to adapt an online identity and acclimate to the Net with whatever free time he has.

The Background
   

History: Ever read a good romance manga? Kenneth Paak's life is nothing like that.  As an only child in a household where both of his parents worked, Paak found himself spending more and more time alone as he got older. This time is allocated towards becoming a bit of an otaku and a street runner on the side. Sure, his parents always had him enrolled in sports and extracurricular activities, but it isn't until Kenneth meets a certain group of people online that he actually sets himself down a path that will lead to him becoming the person he is today.

One of these individuals ends up being local, and introduces him to a less than legal means of making loot. Just in time, too. Halfway through his first year, his father gets into a horrible accident and is left unable to walk as a result. The house needed funding, and the shop owners on the Tokyo Strip weren't offering him enough. So he resorts to crime. Long story short, a job goes horribly wrong and law enforcement comes down upon the entire organization. Due to his clout at the time, Kenneth is able to begin working for another branch of the same crime family.. But his father, all to hip to the way things operate, pressures him into getting more involved at the academy. This lead to him joining the Student Government as a member of the DC and the basketball team to please his parents and have an ally by.  

What's worse? He has not even given up his 'second life' due to the amount of money he is able to bring home. Or so he tells himself. According to the other runners, there is only one way out of the crime family, and it doesn't involve a going away party. The teen faces the challenge of balancing this life with his school and social ones - which is certainly the cause of the bags always under his eyes.

Sorry, but if you want to take social quality strengths than you'll need to take an equivalent number of social quality weaknesses to balance it out. You'll have to replace three of your weaknesses accordingly if you want to keep all of your Understanding strengths.

Quote :
Weakness Name: Unfortified Mind
Description: 15% Weakness to Psy attacks. Self doubt occasionally plagues Paak, making him easy pickings for Psy-based attacks.

Psychokinesis isn't a stat in Endymion. We have something similar called Psychosis, but it's a mutated element that's locked to members of a specific faction, so I'd say that's probably too minor of a weakness on its own to take simply due to how rare it'd be to encounter it. If you want though then you can easily maintain the flavor of the weakness and just change it so he's more susceptible to a specific type of ailment (Distress, Panic, Fear, Rage, etc.).

Quote :
Weakness Name: Dizzystreak
Description: Kenneth is known to become frustrated when the odds are stacked against him. He is more susceptible to Dizziness than his peers.

Player characters can't normally be dizzied in battle. If you want you could have it so the weakness makes him able to be dizzied by the enemies, but that'd be pretty severe and I wouldn't suggest it unless you're set on the idea. It could potentially be outright crippling in some fights since the fact that PCs can't be dizzied also means there'd be nothing to help you recover from the status unless you or one of your allies devotes a soul skill to dealing with it.
