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<-

Patricia McDowell
"I like to have fun, so what? It's not like I'm hurting anyone."

Place of Residence: Seven Stars Academy Dorms
Evoker: Mental Shackles

Appearance


Patricia McDowell is a pale girl of Irish descent, although this isn't explicitly clear with the way she dies her hair different colors. Originally a red head Patty loathes her hair color and keeps her waist-length hair straight and in cool colors, preferably in pastel violet however sometimes she dips into greens and blues. Her eyes are a flecked green that shine bright across her often amused expression. She happens to be a willowy girl with a wiry stick figure, being a slightly taller 5'10" and weighing only 140 lbs. Her ears are pierced and there's a small four-leaf clover tattoo on her left shoulder blade that can rarely be seen.

While in classes Patty takes the laziest approach to her school uniform and wears only a loose unironed shirt with no form of neckwear such as a tie, more often than not rolling the sleeves on them. She avoids wearing the school jacket because she thinks it looks stupid, but half the time she slums it up in her PE jacket and pants despite not being in a sport because it's easier to wear and can be seen as acceptable school attire. Outside of school her wardrobe is decidedly "street" and "modern" with plenty of loose graphic tees, baggy jeans, and stylish sneaks though she keeps things varied.

Alternate Appearance



Under her terrorist alias Patricia appears as a shadowy figure in a long-sleeved and high-collared mauve trenchcoat that billows behind her like a cloak and steepled hat folded over at the top. The hat magically shades her face making her form appear black as night, her eyes glow yellow, and her hair become a glinting silver and is supernaturally adhered to her head, the hat won't fall off as long as she's conscious unless she takes it off herself. She wears the buckled boots of a long passed epoch though her clothing is quite fanciful, with striking striped pants and a checkered corset over a ruffled blouse. Her hands are adorned with tough leather gloves that almost look as if they can be falconer's gloves. When Patty speaks in her Alternate Appearance her voice echoes and sounds foreign to her real voice, an octave higher and with different pitch.

Personality: Patricia is an outgoing and fun-loving person, though an impulsive one. Parties, arcades, theme parks, and anything place else filled with mindless enjoyment is where you'll find her. A slacker and layabout she's known to be unreliable and prone to making promises she can't keep, which she makes excuses for. She generally tends to speak her mind for good or ill and doesn't seem to care about the consequences of her actions, rationalizing the bad things that happen as someone having it out for her and never taking personal responsibility for what she does.

Patty is a known troublemaker and bad influence, testing the boundaries just because she can. She's the first to take a joke too far or do something incredibly stupid to her later regret, though she does regret it often times. This can lead her into a cycle of frustration where she continually acts out and feels as if she's powerless to stop herself from doing so until she's able to reign it under control. She goes against the grain often this way and can come off as flippant, disrespectful, or contrary if not an outright jerk if anyone calls her out on her flaws.

Despite her lack of diligence she happens to be incredibly clever and better at short term than long term planning, coming up with solutions and witticisms off the cuff which are mostly used to justify her misbehavior or make a bad idea seem like a good one. Patricia enjoys bringing people out of their comfort zones and watching them squirm, despite this her natural charm and relaxed attitude see her in the good books of many even if she doesn't deserve to be there. Though she might not be the best role model and a bit harsh she can be incredibly dedicated, applying her defiant nature in a positive way.



 
The Potential
   


Strengths

Strength Name: Under Your Skin
Description: Patty is incredibly good at getting in someone's head and loves to play mind games and games of social chicken. She often knows just the right things to say to make someone angry or sad or impressed just by paying attention to their temperament and context clues, an essential skill in living the life she does. Her Persona also applies this sort of analytical mindset and can hammer the gap effectively when needed.

When Patty hits attacks an enemy's Weakness her attack is boosted by 10%. The attack power is boosted, not the damage, meaning this also applies to clashing.

Strength Name: Driven
Description: When Patricia finds something she wants accomplished she will stop at nothing to see it done. Late nights, days of preparation and hard work, even unsavory tactics, anything to get what she thinks she deserves. Her Persona adopts the same attitude and if Patty wants an enemy gone it puts blood, sweat, and soul into making it disappear.

Patty's PMstr is boosted by 15%.

Strength Name: Endearing
Description: One of Patty's few positive qualities, she's able to get away with quite a bit through generally being funny, relaxed, and when she needs to, an excellent liar.

Charisma growth is doubled.

Strength Name: Child of the Night
Description: Patty is used to always going out in the evening and not coming home until sunrise, curfews be damned. Oftentimes she's out partying or living it up but on rare occasions she uses this time to get things done without anyone bothering her.

Patty can do 2 things during the Night phase instead of just 1.

Strength Name: Give In To the Urge
Description: Patricia happens to be impulsive and prone to making bad decisions without thinking. Suffice to say her Persona Overdose feels intoxicating with the extra power it grants her, and she willingly gives herself over to violent urges and wanton destruction that she never gets to express in daily life.

Patricia's Persona Overdose lasts for 4 turns instead of 3.

((A floating Strength is a strength you've gained inRP. For example, if you were on a Kendo team for some time, you'd naturally know Kendo which is where this strength would come in. However, be aware, it will not be as strong as any of your actual strengths and is a small plus)

Floating Strength Name:
Description:


Weaknesses

Weakness Name: Can't Take It
Description: For as offensive as Patty can be she has a multitude of flaws that can be exploited herself. Patricia is someone that lives in a glass house and throws stones anyway, and her reckless attitude can be easily taken advantage of in manipulating her.

When Patty is attacked by one of her Weaknesses the attack power is boosted by 10%. This applies to the attack power, not the damage, meaning that it applies to clashing.

Weakness Name: Half Assed
Description: Patricia can be completely committed to something and give 110% toward something she finds worthwhile. Other things... not so much. If Patty doesn't enjoy something and isn't forced by others to perform she just won't give it any effort at all. This reflects across her Persona, who similarly won't put any heart into attacks it's not good at.

Patricia's PPstr is reduced by 15%.

Weakness Name: Insulting
Description: Those with weak skin probably won't appreciate Patricia too much. She has a nasty habit of not thinking of what she's saying and rubbing people the wrong way even if she tries to make up for it by playing things off as all in fun.

Patricia needs to rank up Understanding twice to reach Rank 2.

Weakness Name: Parole
Description: Because of her situation and past behavior (and the consequences of staying out late) Patty's mornings are spent checking in or sleeping the day away.

Patty can NEVER do anything during the Morning Day phase.

Weakness Name: It'll Come Back to Haunt You
Description: What feels good in the moment isn't exactly the best thing for you, a lesson Patty has yet to learn. She doesn't care what the consequences of her actions are as long as she enjoys doing what she's doing right now and it frequently comes back to bite her in the rear. By giving into the invigoration of letting loose she needs to fight even harder to regain control of herself.

The backlash from Patricia's Persona Overdose lasts for 4 turns instead of 3.

-----
((A floating weakness is one gained in RP. It could be a fear you inherited during RP, or an injury that hinders your character. Some can be temporary while others can be permanent.)

Floating Weakness Name:
Description:

Soul Bound Weapon

Weapon Name: Witch's Shillelagh
Weapon Description: A long walking stick with a gnarled head and leather wrapping on the center, this staff is nearly as tall as Patty being 5'6" tall and weighs a little over 4 lbs overall.
Weapon Image:
 
Weapon Attack Type: Strike
Weapon Element: None

Side-Arm Weapon

Side-Arm Name: Black Magic
Side-Arm Description: A black revolver chambered to fire 410 bore shotgun shells. It's about 8 inches in length, weighs a pound and a half, and kicks like a mule.
Side-Arm Image:
 
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: Patricia hasn't always been a punk. Up until she was twelve she was a regular social butterfly and overachiever, volunteering for everything she could and making new friends easily like the good child she was. During the Eternal Divide her elder brother was killed, an event that changed her life for the worse. Patty's parents were hit hardest by the death of her sibling and became obsessed with the sorrow, yet instead of placing all their attention on their now only child Patty was always made to feel guilty for his demise despite it not being her fault in the slightest. It was always you'll never be like Sean and your brother would have never given us this grief. To be fair, Patty was never faced with such a terrible situation such as the Eternal Divide and chose to cope with it by acting out and getting into mischief. She no longer cared what happened to her, she had been taught that at any moment she could die and everything that led up to that point was meaningless.

Patricia found herself at Seven Stars Academy not through scholarship nor glowing recommendations but as a punishment. After her grades tanked through the next few years, her constant misbehavior in school, hostile attitude toward her mother and father the final straw was when they found her smoking weed behind the garage. She was essentially thrown out of her home and shipped across the country to Endymion and given an ultimatum: straighten up or don't come home. Ever. This left Patricia quite bitter at the treatment and while her parents wished for her to be positively influenced by the prestigious academy, possibly entering the Cadet program with her force of personality Patty just wants to slog through by the skin of her teeth and do whatever she wants. She was placed under parole status for drug use and is now required to check in every morning with a dedicated official in order to stay in the Academy and not get thrown in jail for the 6 month sentence she should have served.

The troublemaker is acclimating quite well to life at Seven Stars Academy, her charismatic attitude quickly making her popular and well enjoyed by the students and staff. She's even planning on running for Student Council using her likability as a springboard to shoot her into a position of power, leeway, and zero consequence. As part of her parole Patty has also found herself a part time job at a local convenience store in order to instill discipline and ensure that she can be a productive member of society and not just another homeless drug addict. Patricia despises the entire situation, every last detail, and rebels when she can where she can get away with it. Currently the law can't stop her from smoking off school grounds and she's started to delve into old bad habits. Illegal bad habits. Time will only tell where this will lead her though Patty couldn't care less about the future. Right now she lives in the present and the present sucks.

So just when it hits the weakness, right?

History: Seven Stars kinda opened for the first time just as the plot started. So you might need to change up lol.

Just when attacking a Weakness, yeah. If there's a problem I can turn it into flat damage. And what school already doesn't have a student council? lol
