”It doesn’t matter, there’s a doomsday clock on this whole thing anyways.”
Birth Name: Tykal Mahavari
Birth Day: May 26th
Place of Residence: Earth
Evoker: Persona Module
Occupation: (We'll fill this out later.)
Appearance: A young male with a tall slender frame around 5’11” who’s wavy blonde hair rests like a messy mop head that had been plopped down on his crown. His emerald colored eyes barely visible between the brown strands of hair. He looks rather pale, not sickly, just someone who rarely see much sunlight. He does have some muscle definition that can be seen when he’s not flexing but nothing so much as to say he’s toned. Clothing wise when not in school uniform, he tends to wear a button up white shirt with black slacks and a tan colored belt. The black shoes look more like dress shoes than everyday wear. In uniform he carries a brown leather pack with several pockets bulging along the face of it and on the sides. Infact, outside of his hair, you’d say he was a well groomed clean looking gentlemen.
Personality: Mahavari seems a bit shy since he keeps to himself most of the time. Strangely he always seems lost in thought, described as having his head in the clouds. He’s quite friendly when approached but he rarely goes out of his way to make friends unless they ‘pique’ his interest. The term rather selective as knowing him it could be anything from he finds them strange or odd to just plain attractive, not that he’d ever really act on the impulse to flirt. He enjoys gardening, magic shows, and puzzles. The occult seems to be a fascination of his almost as much as plant trivia. He feels at home in natural surroundings often finding himself reading or just daydreaming out in areas with trees and vegetation. If he feels comfortable enough or sometimes worries the situation is too tense, he may resort to jovielle behavior or bust out a parlor trick or sleight of hand to break the tension. All in all he seems pretty carefree on the surface but when he falls silent and starts staring blankly his mind is busy at work. Mahavari seems to be good with words and hiding things he’d rather keep hidden. Like everyone, he has a darker side to him. A part he’d rather not let rise to surface, a suppressed thought or urge that occasionally sneaks its way to the surface. He seems mild and happy but when angered he completely loses it. The happy go lucky guy becomes a complete psycho with one goal. Inflict literally as much pain as possible before he regains his senses. In a state of rage Tykal’s calm exterior becomes a monologue of villainous threats and frenzied smile all the while pummeling his foes. Like all humans he wears different faces for the situation and while rage isn’t sightly the face he is most disgusted with is fear. Insecurity anxiety and fear are the side of him he wished he could hide from existence. He fears being alone, that people won’t accept him for who he is, that people only hang out with him because of a magic trick or because of an ulterior motive. He’s the quiet kid who likes gardening and weird stuff. He’s always ‘spacing out’ maybe he’s plotting something sinister. All those ideas cripple him. He tries so hard to stay under the radar of his classmates out of fear or rejection. In truth his biggest secrets is his low self esteem and that he’s deathly afraid of making a genuine connection with people.

—Strength Name: Practical Magician
—Description: Tykal’s always loved magicians and their tricks. He studied how to imitate them and put on a show. At first it was for his own amusement but then seeing how others found it quirky and interesting it really supported all the effort he put into mastering some tricks. +15% P.Mstr
—Strength Name: Sleight of Hand
—Description: In practicing magic tricks, one does get rather dexterous. Heck even throwing knives requires more skill than brute force. Thanks to this dexterity Tykal is able make 2 Dex Based Soul-Weapon attacks when he attacks.
((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:
—Weakness Name: Anxiety
—Description: Tykals fears are the ugliest side of him. He bottles so many emotions and unlike rage that may at least have some benefit, his anxiety and fears are nothing but a hindrance.

—Weakness Name: Under Everyone's Radar
—Description: Tykal’s anxiety of rejection and fear of people using him or hurting him has developed into a sort of defense mechanism where he tries to keep to himself.

—Weakness Name:[/b ] Out to prove a point

—Weakness Name: C.c...c...cold!!!!
—Description: Tykal can’t stand the cold. He tends to hide indoors and sip warm drinks in cool weather but snow and below freezing temperatures he nearly refuses to anything outdoors. So it should come as no surprise that he has no affinity with the Bufu skills at all. -15% damage of all [Ice] Element attacks Tykal performs.
((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. Do not: if you do something stupid that would sensibly get your character screwed, you WILL earn yourself one of these bad boys!)

History: Tykal Mahavari, Earth Resident, pre-destruction, grew up in a nuclear family. His Mother and Father are both researchers for some big pharmaceutical company. Their research has taken them across the globe so Tykal never stays anchored anywhere too long. It’s caused him to shy away from making genuine connections with people. He was raised to be independent. Many mornings he’d see his parents briefly on their way off to work, if he saw them at all. Most responsibilities fell on his shoulders. His parents sent him money, but housekeeping, cooking, cleaning, nearly everything was done by himself. When he was much younger he stayed with a relative or nanny, but during his teen years he had a record for not really doing anything troublesome and being quite mature for his age so his parents left him free range. A typical day would be breakfast, school, home to study and do homework, care to his plants he keeps in his room, and then to entertain himself. Tykal always had an excuse why he couldn’t go somewhere or engage in others thanks to his parents' absence, and it ended up becoming a crutch he’d use to get out of situations. His parents knowledge of flora and fauna was a relatively large conversation topic at home so it wasn’t a surprise that Tykal took up interest in it. Besides he could easily take plants with him when he moved. They were a constant in his life at that brought him a brief moment of comfort. He liked watching them grow and become beautiful and healthy. When he’d be left alone he began watching documentaries and stumbled upon one particular show he found himself overly infatuated with, Madame Vampira’s Occult Macabre. At first he simply watched it because it was on, but the way she spoke so passionately about the occult and paranormal ended up getting him hooked. In time he found himself wanting to know more and more about the various subjects, myths, and arts he watched on the show. Branching from magic and paranormal from the show, Tykal discovered magicians. Not the real magic kind, the street performers and famous vegas stars kind. Priding himself as an intellectual he began to pass time trying to solve the puzzle of how the tricks were performed and replicating it himself. His favorite tricks were the throwing knives and Wheel of Doom, the magicians would place someone on. His parents begrudgingly bought him a practice set for his 13th birthday. As long as his grades didn’t slip and the house was maintained his parents seemed to not care what he did. Though without parental influence Tykal’s social skills were lacking. School life was hard. He began resorting to parlor tricks to win other students attention and pleasantries to impress his teachers. It seemed to go well for him for a good while until he overhead some of the students talking about him behind his back. They were calling him weird and one went so far as to say they only befriended him because of lack of supervision in his household. Tykal took this very harshly and became enraged. He severely attacked a student putting him in the hospital and becoming expelled from school. Thanks to that outburst and the sudden introduction of a caseworker and psychiatrist into his world. Tykal’s freedoms were taken away for sometime. His parents hired a nanny/tutor for him at the house for the remaining school year. While they simply hoped to keep him behaved it caused Tykal more than just anger. He became anxious around others and instead of trying to get along with people he simply wanted to blend in with the crowd. It became worse when he’d travel to other countries. Not all of the countries his parents moved to for their research spoke the same language as him making him even more of an outcast. He shut himself out from the social world even more falling into a depression. He put on a smile so people wouldn’t worry about him and acted friendly when approached but overall it didn’t lead to anything meaningful. Thankfully his past couldn’t follow him jumping around so much. Most recently his parents started being home more to work on their research. This was a step he was used to, parents being home meant they were going to move soon. He didn’t know when but he was sure in just a few short months it would over and he’d start anew.
The last thing Mahavari experienced was lying on a hillside watching the sunset rolling a coin between his fingers lost in the thought of what was going to happen to him when he moved and playing back moment of his life he wished he could change and dealing with the anxiety of change.

A PEnd-affecting Strength is slightly problematic in a sense it interferes with a value that has a fixed maximum value. It'd be way better and easier to manage in a systematic sense if you said he just takes 15% more damage from physical attacks~
Backstory-related, you haven't made it clear whether he's from the Pre-World or the Post-World. His life that you presented seems like a normal life in current day and age of 2020, which leads me to assume he's from before the world ended, but it's just unspecified and I require your confirmation or denial on this. In case he's from after the world ended, which would be the Post-World, his life on Post-Earth would encompass interacting with alien immigrants and other wacky science fiction stuff.
