As in, I assumed it would take a couple of posts to get to Saturn Valley. Apologies for the confusion.
Strange, I have an inventory planned out. I probably don't need to put her clothes in, but I was sticking with the traditional Earthbound 14-item limit. Wait, razor and lipstick?

Congrats to me, I finished! The only problem I have is her instrument and how to get her to Saturn Valley... giant crow? Floo powder? Why do I feel like there's something else wrong with this?
Apologies for the double post.
EDIT: I got an idea for a character connection, so I added a subtle hint. The other person's approved it, don't worry.
Name: Santana Hillridge-Munchkin
Appearance: A sentence to sum up Santana's appearance would be "I could've sworn I threw that old Barbie away..."
She's is an average height for her age, around 4 feet. Her unruly, dirty-blonde hair is long enough to touch the floor. She lets it hang loose, and pushes her bangs to the side in order to expose her forehead. Her skin is a light tone of peach and her eyes are a peculiar fandango. Her round face is topped with a petite nose, thin eyebrows and a rather
menacing mischievous, pearly white smile for a tween. Her figure is rather slim for her age, leading people to think that she was underfed.
The word "trend" doesn't mean anything to Santana; not that she knows what it means. She's almost always seen in a sleeveless collared shirt, always some shade of pink. The black hairband which sits on top of her head doesn't really push her bangs, and is more an aesthetic accessory. Her legs sport jean shorts with the ends folded up slightly; these can almost classify as booty shorts, but people ignore this since she's just a kid. Around her waist is an old beige belt with a simple metal buckle. adorning her forehead is usually a temporary tattoo advertising some music group of the past or a pop culture reference. (RUNAWAY 5 ANY1?)
Personality: If you introduced yourself to her, she would phase you as a demure, innocent girl who played outside a bit too much. In fact, it might prove to be rather dangerous for you if you try to approach her seriously. With an iron fist and the burning passion of a "natural leader" (or so she claims), she won't hesitate to drag along other people for her own amusement. It's quite obvious that's she's an eccentric in everything she does. A little adventure-girl herself, she doesn't mind getting dirty if she'll get to her destination; and she gives not a single damn about if her
slaves companions get dirty along the way. Following her own tune is what she does best.
This is justifiable, however. Santana has only known two people in her life, those people being her aunt and her friend. Spending her time rummaging through "forgotten things" (known to middle-class people as trash piles), she was rejected by peers and "happily" spent her afternoons by herself. Her tendency to enslave people in her personal army stems from the fact that she really doesn't know how to interact with others, especially boys (one of her moms described them as foul beasts, especially Montoyas). There are still a lot of things she doesn't know about the world ("What's a dad?" "Is this what you call a 'TV'?"), but unfortunately knows stuff a girl her age shouldn't dare know. Though it may seem unlike her, she believes strongly in
the morning sun small philosophies that she picked up from her aunt, such as always brushing you teeth before bed or how a little song can go a long way.
Though she may not look like it, she loves to sing. Though her voice is rather squeaky and childish when she sings. it's peculiar enough to make people double over in laughter. She's not sure who she inherited this from, nor does she care. She strongly believes that a song can make someone's day, even if they end up ridiculing your voice. she often sings to herself whenever she's in a real cheery mood. Even though she puts up a brave-girl exterior, she can't help but slack off every once in a while. It's this sort of behavior that makes her less leader-material, but being quick on her feet she usually gets the position first (or resorts to dethroning the current leader).
History: Santana was raised by her two moms (which are actually just her aunt and her friend), Phyllis Hillridge and Edna Munchkin. Phyllis was apparently some form of businesswoman who had lost her job for some circumstances Santana didn't par attention to. Nonetheless, she still has a fortune she intends to keep. Edna (who usually goes by Viper) is an overweight biker (and a former robomechanic, who also lost her job) with no general goal in life other to travel. She also has an obsession with food, especially Fat Cakes. Together, the three lived on the outskirts of Robot City, where most of the city's garbage went. Santana spent most of her days rummaging through the nearby landfill, which she dubbed "The Land of the Forgotten". Santana, being aware that Phyllis and Edna were not her real parents, felt a need to fill her isolation. Thus, she tried entering the city in search of friends. Unfortunately, the locals refused to accept this filthy trash-digger, and she vowed never to go there again (unless she was shopping for something). Back to the Land of the Forgotten she went.
Santana hated it, but she had to frequently travel to Robot City to shop for fatty packaged food. She was completely fine with the shopping, and she absolutely loved the spicy fish sticks that the store sold. This was when her personality really started to develop. Phyllis didn't really want Santana interacting with other people out of fear that she would be further isolated. As a result, Phyllis teached her about little philosophies that she picked up along the way, such as "There's always time for a good song." Having nothing to do, Santana used her powerful voice and imagination to create the Land of the forgotten into a safe haven for herself. She started to take boxes and car doors to her "backyard" and build her castle there. It was a kingdom she created from scratch, even going as far as to create little tin-can inhabitants and voice over for them. She gave herself the role of the bossy queen, possibly reflecting her semi-hatred of people. That time was when she first discovered a giant robot toy. Deciding to take it home, she had Viper look at it, and with enough hard work and Fat Cakes, she fixed him up like new and even made his head into a microphone. The weird outdated toy which called itself MegaMic became one of Santana's valuable, and they went on many cliche, song-filled childhood adventures.
Then the Aurora Mysteria entered her life, but didn't make it much different. She would just sit in her garbage castle with her new robot friend, wondering why the strage rainbow was blocking all of the barely visible stars. There wasn't anything with a screen at her home, so she and her family were oblivious to the events and just continued gazing at the Aurora. Until one day, a special little cat showed up at her door and invited her on a grand adventure...
- Favourite food: Spicy Fish Sticks
- Favourite thing: Song
- Favourite animal: Cats. She read about them in a dirty old book once.
- Which musical instrument best represents your character? Music Box
- Is your character PSI-capable? No
Skills: Using her "miracle voice" (amplified by MegaMic), she can imitate enemy calls and summons nearby enemies to aid her in battle. Depending on the enemy, the commands she can give will vary. Enemies fall into the offensive, defensive, or support categories (if a really high level, a combination of two of them) Unfortunately, MegaMic runs on batteries (Electric Points, or EP), so this ability stops becoming effective if MegaMic runs out of EP. Luckily, since MegaMic was made to take a hit, she can use him as a baseball bat. Though her body-type says no, her strength says yes and she's able to wield him with ALMOST no problems. She's used to carrying heavy stuff from the landfill to her house.
Inventory: MegaMic (E)
Dirty Tank Top (E) (Looks like a hand-me-down, and probably is. God knows where it came from.)
Jean Shorts (E) (Are you sure these aren't booty shorts? Nonetheless, they put extra spunk in your step.)
Chunky Battery x3 (When used, restores EP to MegaMic. Otherwise, it's a giant brick which takes up space in your bag.)
Egg Sandwich (A cute looking sandwich which restores 30% of your health when consumed. Made by Santana herself, it's not very neat.)
Temporary Tattoo x3 (Rather wide tattoos advertising outdated legends. May or may not be easy to wash off.)

I had a lot of fun with this! I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it!
Name: Yako Eagleman
Gender: DOOD, HE'S TOTALLY A DUDE, DOOD!
He's got very silly blonde hair, gelled upwards in a giant triangular-esque spire! (Think the main character of "Ghost Trick"!) What even is this? Why is this a thing? His eyes are blue, covered by red triangle shades, and his face has sharp features. He's wirey and athletic, and wears a red, plaid t-shirt, white wifebeater, red fingerless gloves, a pair of blue jeans, and red shoes. He's pretty tall, I guess? About six feet and an inch, not including his hair (which adds on about six inches). He goes to sleep like this, you know! No pajamas for Yako! His skin is fair, and maybe even a little pale. What's the deal with that? Doesn't he get out much? Oh, he gets out plenty. Turns out he just doesn't tan well. Who would've thought? To each their own.
Personality: He's Yako! What do you want to know? What could you possibly need to know about this guy? Oh, something useful? Here, let's start with his inteligence! To say that he's as smart as a gorilla would be insulting to the species. What he lacks in inteligence, he more than makes up for in sheer willpower and generally go-getting attitude! If he isn't fighting, he isn't happy! He's a MAN! A FIGHTIN' MAN! The words "Caution" don't even register to him! He's a straight-edge, so he doesn't smoke or drink, but he doesn't really advocate it too much. Only when he feels it nessesary to. He's not a guy that gives into peer pressure, unless he actually wants to do something that he's being pressured to do.
Yako likes to fight. On the list of things to do, it's tops! So, when a fight is going on, he gets really exited, and rushes straight into the forray, often times head-first, blindly, and without looking. In fact, Yako has gone and looked for fights with people and things, because he enjoys to fight so much! He doesn't do it out of mallace, no. He's just got a fighting spirit, and a warrior's heart is all. He got the one in an auction, and the other is in a jar on his desk at home. Clearly, he didn't get what he bargined for, but that's just another example of how absolutely impetuous he is! He wants to be known as a great warrior, and maybe, to become a hero, or a legend!
He comes from WINTERS! His father actually immigrated from Winters to Eagleland, as it turns out. His father was a lumberer, and he himself doesn't really know what he wants to do. He's still trying to figure out what he's going to do. With STYLE! Unfortunately, Style only goes so far, and right now, he's stuck where he is. In Eagleland, with his lumberer father, learning the trade. He doesn't seem to have a whole lot of trouble with it, really. He's already perfected the art of arborial wrasslin', which is part of his family's secret trade to cut down on waste. One could imagine that he would be quite strong from wrangin' trees all day, and one would be very right! One night, when he was out wrasslin' the last few trees of the day, he saw the sky light up in all'a those colors! It facinated him! If by "facinate", we mean "made him run out to his father's house, knock rather rambunctiously on his door, point to the sky, and then babble on about it, very loudly, for about ten minutes."
- Favourite food: YOP! (A yogurt drink)
- Favourite thing: FIGHTING!
- Favourite animal : THE SHARK!
- Which musical instrument best represents your character? THE DRUMS! BAM! BOOM! CRASH!
- Is your character PSI-capable? NOT EVEN A LITTLE!
He's a man! If he can, he'll grab things nearby and throw them at the enemy! Why? Because he can! Oh, he can also wrestle things! How's he do that? Why, he flings himself at the person, or object of question, and starts binding their arms or legs! Or maybe he just wails on 'em? Who knows? Maybe he'll miss entirely! Otherwise, he just uses his fists! POW! CRASH! BANG! Punch things in their dumb face! Unless he's using something ABSURDLY LARGE as a weapon, like a tree! Is he using a tree as a weapon? The whole tree?! Woah, that's messed up! He's a manly man! The manliest man to ever be a man! Oh, yeah. He can also grow a beard on command, though I don't think that'll ever be very useful.
Manly shirt(s?)! (But really, what manly man needs a shirt(s)?!) (E)
Manly jeans! (Very manly! They're a real good fit, too!) (E)
Triangle Shades! (Woah, cool guy! Don't cut your face!) (E)
Red Shoooze! (These shoes are practically OOZING with style!) (E)
Funky Sandwitch! (1x) (It's so out of touch, it still thinks glittery suits are in style!)

Fixed and ready to be accepted. Oh, this is a psi bolt. Or at least what I call them.
1st March 2012, 3:55 PM
Name: Calvin Hollinberry
Appearance: First thing about Calvin you’ll pick up, is that he’s a pretty normal looking kid. Then you’ll probably notice those huge, black headphones on his head.Stands at 6 feet with a bit of a slouch. Guy has ariendly, though sharp face, dark blue eyes, slightly reddish nose complimenting pale skin, freckles, messy black hair hidden under a blue snow hat. His ears are a bit red too, but those are hidden under the blue snowflaps of his hat. He’s really thin and wiry under his poofy parka jacket, but no one’ll ever know that, cuz yknow, he wears heavy clothing. Dark green parka, yellow and black striped shirt, worn down black gloves, black snow pants, n’ black boots done up with red laces. He sometimes has a backpack with him, yellow this time, but that all depends on if he’s on his way to or from school or not. Has taken to carrying around his Dads old cricket bat around with him, though he’s absolutely terrible at cricket.
Personality: Calvin’s a man of several words, most of which are kept to himself. Unless you’re a buddy of his, in which case, those well hidden words come out a bit. He has a healthy love for music and nature, though the former seems to be on his mind the most. Fella loves his surf rock, even though he’s never actually been surfing, or on a beach you could surf at in the first place. Really has an appreciation for DCMC, ‘specially how they managed to stay independent in the rough and tough musical world. First favorite genre for him has to be bebop. Where he got his love for the drums all them years ago. Calvin’s always wanted to be a jazz man, and bebop’s just the style to fit his musical need to hit things with tiny sticks. Oh, he may not look it, but his other favorite genre is classical music. Cant describe why he loves it so much in conventional terms. Most you’ll get is that it “Calls to him”. Calls to him enough that he’s attempted to learn several different string instruments over the past few years. Eh. At least he has piano and drums, right? If it isnt clear already, music is a biiiig part of this kids life. Previous sentence probably wasnt necessary at all though. Second favorite thing is nature. Maybe it was from being raised in Winters all his life, but he’s always had a fine appreciation for the world around him. When he isnt practicing his music, he’s off taking a walk somewhere. Probably toward a snowy beach somewhere, or through a rainy forest. If he finds anything interesting on his walks, he generally pockets it, or drops it off in his backpack. For Calvin, nothing gets better than combining his two loves. When he’s out and about, he always has his headphones about his ears, and his cricket bat as a teeny walking stick/item to carry around. He really hates getting attacked by stuff when he goes into the woods though, ESPECIALLY when he doesnt have any good chase music prepared. Nothing ruins a desperate run from disgruntled animals like super calm classical. Or maybe it makes things just a bit more terrifying. Really depends on the song.
He’s more likely to run from wild animal encounters in the woods, outside of the purely logical reasoning of “Oh God, this animal hates me with all of its everything”. Cal doesnt really like hitting animals, dangerous or not. Just doesnt feel right. If panic mode activated, he may do something about it, but for the most part, he just bails out, or tries to keep out of the angry animals way. It’s a pretty good way to describe the way he deals with people in general, actually. Keep out of the path the angry folk pave and enjoy yourself when you can. He has a few close friends, despite his quiet nature, n’ those are the buddies that make all the difference. He REALLY wants to start a band, but his quiet, somewhat shy nature makes it hard for him to talk to people. He has a few guitarists he jams with every now and then, but nothing other than that. Has a non-addictive personality, finding himself quite content with himself and his life. He sometimes wishes his father were home more often, and especially wishes his mother were still alive, but he doesnt let himself go there too much. Figures it’s not too healthy to settle on what ifs and what arent, so he distracts himself from it. Probably why music is such a gigantic part of his life. Good way to keep from getting swallowed up by loneliness.
What more can I say about the fella? He’s quiet, introverted, peaceful, a bit lonely, and he loves himself some music. All around chill dude.
History: Okay so, as I mentioned before, Calvin was born and raised in the chilly land of Winters. Been there all his life, minus some family business trips to Eagleland. At a super young age, he lost his mother to some kinda disease. He was never told the specifics, and he doesnt bring it up to his father or brother, so that’s an unknown right there. He pretty much lived on his own from there on out, his father busy overseas hard at work and his brother working hard at Reynard University. Though his brother’s around from time to time, and his father does his best to come home to visit, Calvin’s come to accept their absence in his life. Gives him more time to play the drums as loud as he wants, and he cant find any complaints in that!
He’s got his childhood friend Ruben, whom he calls up on the phone every so often just to talk ‘bout stuff. Ruben’s one of those smarty types, and thankfully not the stuck up kind, so there’s always a nice conversation to get out of the guy. It helps that Ruben’s about as socially inept as Calvin is, so they’re pretty understanding of each other right there. One of his other friends is the first guitar player he had, guy also served as a singer for a time. He hasnt been ‘round to play all that much due to some personal issues in his own life, but Calvin’s cool with that. He’ll come back whenever he’s ready, n’ they can start jamming again. For now he’s jamming with a bass player turned guitarist, whom Cal’s actually getting close to, despite her rather aloof nature. It’s come to the point where if you ask one about the other, they’ll give a similar response of “Hm. Pretty chill kid”. That’s pretty good for an introvert, right? Last of his friends is this girl he has the hots for. Her name’s Allison, and she’s pretty damn cool. That’s all he’s gonna say about her though. Juuuust her name. He’s too damn shy to talk about that kinda stuff, yo.
He’s just a teenager, like most of us, just doing his thing and making his way in the world. He actually encountered his perchance for PK Ground while jamming with that girl from above. He really rocked the house that time ‘round, and I assure you it was quite terrifying.
The Aurora Mysteria rainbow thing just ended up bothering him. Really didnt look too good against a nice, sky backdrop. Spoiled the mood of the place something awful! Of course what spoiled it more was when a bear decided to chase poor Calvin all the way through the woods. Just barely made it home safe. Understandably, he stayed away from the woods a bit, even resorting to staying inside for a few days because of how badly he was shaking up by that bear. Just as he was about to go for another walk, the Starman appeared on the telly. Though it worried him a bit, there’s pretty much nothing he can do, so he just hoped for the best and moved on. That’ll change though...
Favourite food: Pepperoni Pizza
Favourite thing: Bebop
- Favourite animal: Turtle
- Which musical instrument best represents your character? Cello, but he really enjoys playing the drums.
- Is your character PSI-capable? Yes he is!
PK Ground: Cal whips out his drums sticks and starts pounding away on the ground, or any surface conveniently located near the ground. He can keep this up as long as he keeps a steady drumbeat (And the ground shaking and rumbling dont knock him over) Right now, it’s good as a distraction, not much else. Kinda intimidating, I guess?
Items On Hand:
Beat up old cricket bat/walking stick/thing (It’s his Dads!)
Yellow backpack (1x) (For storing things!)
Hugely big headphones! (1x) (Music Time!)
Blue snow hat (Floppy ear covers included)
Cellphone (1x) (Old and dropped more times than held!)
Drum stick (2 1/2x) (He can play music!)

A twelve-year-old with a robot pet--how adorable. And the way she sings--I bet Candy would really like her. Accepted! On the instrument thing, I think a music box would be more appropriate, since A) they're quirky little gadgets, like MegaMic, and B) you can sometimes find old music boxes in a junkyard. And it's cute and innocent-sounding, just like Santana is.
Sluggy: Oh look! Look! Look at him write! It's astounding! <3 So he uses Brute Force as his skills, kinda like Flint. Interesting! I'm down to have a fighter dude in the party. It'd be interesting to see him in battle. Accepted!
coolminun: Ah, so you went for PK
Orca Aura? Interesting way of using it. Everything looks good now. Accepted!
AWESOMEPUFFS: Hahaha, his appearance kinda reminds me of an older version of Ness, on vacation in Winters (to see Jeff?). But he has kind of an interesting personality. Winters and DCMC seem to be very popular in this RPG... Anyway, accepted.
Well then, I'm gonna have to start the RPG pretty soon, eh? I'll get to work on the first post shortly, and hopefully I'll have it up later tonight or tomorrow.
2nd March 2012, 2:14 AM
Oh, yay! Glad to encounter you for the (third?) time now? The first and second being when Crimson Skies fell down. Oh, how fun it'll be writing about discovering the outside world. XD

Magikarpenter: Huh, an old black guy with the spirit of adventure and a love of quoting movies. Interesting. Anyway, your signup looks much better now! Accepted. One thing though: you need not put clothes your character is wearing in your Inventory. This is not Mother 3--clothes are just clothes, not special equip items. You can just fix that in your RPG post though. The RPG has started, so you can start on that post now!

Name: Bowie SNES
Appearance: Bowies skin tone is a well done tanish color. Not super dark but not overly pale either. For being around 6 feet tall Bowie could be considered a lightweight but he is also surprisingly sturdy, thanks in part to his hobbies. His hair is short and rather rough. For reasons explained in Bowies history, he wears a headband with a single red feather tilted at an angle next to his right ear. Eye color is coal which is the same as Bowies hair. He wears a solid black undershirt and a red pocketed vest with ripped sleeves. Continuing downwards, Bowie has cool grey and black cargo pants and red/black hiking boots. A firm believer of function over fashion, he is equipped with a black backpack and a pair of awesome black armbands.
Personality: Bowie can be truthful to a fault and is an eternal optimist. He is trusting of others and often gives people the benefit of the doubt when first met. The flip side to that is that Bowie greatly dislikes any kinds of betrayel or deception. If he feels that someone or himself has been wronged, Bowie is more than willing to go to extreme lengths to see that justice is served. Altough if you asked Bowie about it, he would comment that he is merely following the example of modern day superhero's and is not really driven by revenge or vengance.
Some of Bowies interests include video games, collectible card games and hiking through the woods. Main characters and hero's in games usually win in the end, so logically they should make for the perfect role models! Playing cards can be an excellent way to sharpen the mind and in Bowies case, a good way to strengthen the body as well. (more on this later) Being in the great outdoors comes as second nature to him because Bowie is a huge fan of exploration and there is never a shortage of wild animals to interact with.
History: Bowie is a long time native of Eaglelands Nine nine town. A relatively quiet place with some woodlands, suburbs and a centralized commercial district. As a kid, Bowie was not very strong but he did like to play card games. However many times after games ended, players would get into brawls due to accusations of cheating or people just plain ol being sore losers. These fights broke out often, as the residents of Nine nine town take their collectible card games very seriously. After years of participating in card related skirmishes, Bowie naturalley got tougher and more resillient.
With the town having plenty of forest around, it is easy for the people to take nature walks whenever they please. Occasionally while hiking around, Bowie would speak to the animals to see how they will react, knowing full well that they cannot possibly understand a word that he is saying. At about the same time as the start of the Aurora, Bowie was outside eating a cookie when a bird swooped down and stole it! Bowie yelled some curse words at the creature and much to his amazement, the bird returned the treat and apologized!
After sharing the cookie, Bowie decided to put his newfound ability to the test and try to communicate with the red chickens that one of his neighbors kept fenced up nearby. To look more convincing, he attached a red feather to his head. When Bowie attempted to talk with the normally hostile chickens, they understand him and do not try to peck him to death! The news was not all good though because while Bowie had gained a strange new power, he soon learned that 2 twin children that he sometimes babysat had gone missing without a trace...
- Favourite food: Pasta
- Favourite thing: Games
- Favourite animal: Cat
- Representative musical instrument: Trumpet
- PSI-capable? Yes
PSI: None right now
Skills: Speak animal language!
If Bowie is feeling brave enough, he can strike up a conversation with almost anything. The outcome of these chats fall into three catogories: Unfavorable (might just make the creature angry and more dangerous), Neutral (no major changes to behavior) and Favorable (possibly getting the foe to cease fighting or even winning its assistance for a short time)
Bowies skill is usually more successful on organic life forms and not very effective on other things.

Soaring Pikachu: SNES is an odd last name for a character, but if Earthbound Zero can have a boy named Ninten as its main character, then I guess anything's possible. I also have to wonder what happened to towns 5, 6, 7, and 8. And hmm, was that bird Bowie first encountered a Spiteful Crow? Well, enough ranting. You are accepted.
3rd May 2012, 2:57 AM
Name: Aqua Way
Appearance: Aqua is a young girl that was never that normal. She was born with unnaturally long, floor length hair that was a dark brown and sometimes black depending on the lighting. Her eyes are the same black-brown that her hair is. Her skin is pale and makes her look fragile even though she can easily beat up a boy. Shoes were almost always out of the question when she was younger and she always wore a dress or skirt. She has a lot of dresses in her closet, a few jeans and large sweaters for the extra cold days. Rarely would she be seen in her Reynard University uniform which is a teal skirt, matching coat, white button up underneath, a black bowtie, and a pair of black shoes which she wore over long white socks. It was her least favourite outfit in her wardrobe but was required for her too continue her studies. Once school hours were over, she would walk around the female dorms wearing a white dress that has a lacy trim and black, Greek style sandals. A dress that she usually wears when she goes out on warm days is a green or yellow sundress, with a white bow in the front and white sandals. Her casual wear consists of a white short sleeved shirt with a pink bow, a navy-blue skirt, navy suspenders, white socks with red ribbons attached to them, and red or brown shoes. Her pajamas are a pair of pink pants and a pink long sleeve button up shirt. Since the weather in Winters is mostly freezing cold, Aqua also has a collection of jackets that have ridiculous numbers of pockets and zippers ranging in many different colours, her favorite being the black, white, and purple one. When she lacks pocket space, Aqua carries a black and purple duffle bag that is actually quite spacious inside. Why this bag? She claims that it was the only thing she could find in her father’s closet that he didn’t use.
Personality: Aqua generally is a cute person over all who tries to be cute whenever she can be. Despite the cute act, she enjoys smart mouthing people and slightly comes off as rude and annoying sometimes. She enjoys adding “mew” after some sentences or saying “clap” after each of her claps. When she is angered with an adult she may use their first name instead of Mister or Miss, or Misses. She very much enjoys pouring hot sauce over most dishes she eats, claiming that it adds flavor to flavorless dishes and enhances the flavorful ones. She enjoys growing Refreshing Herbs and Parsley in her room using pots. She doesn’t like most of the people in her school; she mainly spends time with a Homosexual classmate whose name is Todd Johansson. She spends her time defending him and beating up anyone who makes fun of him. Todd is grateful but due to the fact that she is being protected by a girl just gives the bullies more reason to bother him. Secretly, she plans ways to torture the bullies who bother Todd and herself. She decided that she wouldn’t show Todd her powers or be her true self near him so she doesn’t scare away the lonely boy who only has one other friend, his very understanding roommate who he had a crush on.
History: Aqua grew up in the warm and thriving town of Toto, you could even say that she never left Foggyland. Her parents were a man and woman who look a lot like their daughter, minus the long hair. She was also an only child so she didn’t socialize much with children. Not going to school that much also didn’t help her socialize. Her parents decided that she was smart enough. She could read, write, and solve simple math problems at a young age. After reaching the age of 10, Aqua was forced into school by her aunt who had moved in with her family. She didn’t love her aunt, but respected the woman for her brain. She would use large words and solve complex problems. Aqua didn’t mind school; she quickly became a top student by staying after school for tutoring. Even after starting school, she wasn’t that social. She would walk around the school with her expressionless face that she still uses today. She was a usual target for bullies but Aqua could easily take a hit then return three with the same amount of power, her size didn’t stop her from defending herself. Slowly, the numbers of people who bullied the girl dropped till it hit zero.
Once she was finished with elementary school, Aqua was transferred to Winters. Her aunt lived in Winter Town and acted as her guardian while she attended Reynard University. This was when Aqua’s true personality began to form. She realized that she wanted to be cute and not some emotionless robot. Along the way she did make a friend, Todd a shy and weak homosexual male. They aren't best friends or anything but she protects the defenseless guy. Her grades were always top of the class which caused the more challenged students to dislike her. She couldn’t understand why but she accepted it. When she was 13, the Aurora Mysteria started shining in the night sky while Aqua was sitting by Lake Tess watching Peppercorn, the school's pet cat, chase some butterflies. She found him adorable. Somehow, Peppercorn got poisoned. Maybe it was a bee sting? They’ve went getting crazy during this time plus some more animals. As she picked up the cat she whispered everything would be fine. Once these words were muttered, water warped around her hands and started glowing. Peppercorn felt much better and started jumping around once more. Once she returned to school with Peppercorn, she put her jacket on and sneaked out of the school and into town. The town was quite new, parents moved there to make things easier for their children. Aqua’s parents weren’t rich enough to move here but her aunt was good enough. She informed her aunt of the newly found powers and even showed her aunt her gift. Her aunt even let a bee sting her and had Aqua prove the powers to be true. After being healed, Aqua’s aunt told her about a great many heroes who also had strange psychic powers. Some had somewhat tragic lives, and some had normal ones. Aqua prayed during her walk back to the school that her life wouldn’t have many hardships.
Questionnaire: Besides completing the above fields, you must also answer the following questions for your character. Believe me; these answers will be important in certain parts of the RPG.
- Favourite food: “I love croissants. I also find it funny when it’s spelt wrong on menus! If you'd ask me about my favorite dessert though, I'd have to say Strawberry Tofu. It's so sweet and pink and creamy~”
- Favourite thing: “I love my garden. My roommate kind of dislikes it but she likes collecting insects so I don’t think she’s allowed to comment on my garden.”
- Favourite animal: “Cats. I really like them. They’re all over Toto but you don’t find them in Winters that often, unless if you're at my aunts house. There is a cat that lives in the school and I just love petting his soft, black fur. For some reason, this cat also enjoys swimming in the lake, even during the harsh winter.”
- Which musical instrument best represents your character? “Music isn’t much of my forte, but I enjoy the piano. It looks really difficult and I bet it is. I don’t think I’ll ever move my hands that fast across a keyboard. I wonder if pianists are good at typing…”
- Is your character PSI-capable? “PSI powers...? I...I think I have one of those.”
PSI: Aqua is able to use PSI Healing.
Skills: Aqua has a wonderful singing voice. She isn't that great at writing lyrics but she'll sing a song for anyone if they ask kindly.

@chihaya01: All right, a LSU! Well, as you may know, the RPG has progressed quite a bit already, but I'm more than glad to accept new people still, especially when existing members become inactive. I strongly suggest you either skim over the RPG or read the Plot Summary in the Discussion Thread (the link to that is in my signature) that I have so conveniently prepared for situations like this. Anyway, Naneth is accepted, but there is one small fix you must make: the Snow Wood Boarding School has been replaced by Reynard University. I suggest you look at the country description for Winters. Because this RPG takes place after the events of Mother 3, the world has been resurrected with the same sort of geography, but somewhat different places. That explains why the Eagleland towns of Onett and such are gone as well, though Fourside survived for a special reason...
So when you do your first post in the RPG, just start from elsewhere in Quetzal and head into the garden. I don't really care how you got to Quetzal at this point as long as it's reasonable--maybe Peppercorn even teleported you or something. And finally, remember to list your inventory at the bottom of every post, just like everyone else in the RPG is doing.
But yeah, LSU's will still be accepted!

I was thinking of changing her name to something not so...elvish. I must have skipped the part about the school by mistake. my bad!
As for first post, I'll just make it full of flashbacks till I get to the part in Quetzal where Naneth or whatever I rename her as will join the party.
EDIT: It's official. Naneth is now Aqua Way.

Ahem... References anyone? IDK if anyone will figure it out, though...
Name: Dell Conagher
Appearance: Dell wears a button up shirt almost all the time and tucks it into his pants. He grew up in Summers, so he normally rolls his sleeves up. He loved to build things ever since he was a child and was so use to using power tools to build, he wears safety goggles everywhere. His hair is dirty blonde and thin. Dell’s hair is usually messed up because he prefers not to brush it.
His face is about the same as anyone else, but he has a five o’clock shadow. His skin is a bit pail for a man who lived in Summers all his life and he is normal in the weight category, weighing 191 pounds. His usual pants are jeans and slacks and on an occasion, overalls.
Personality: Dell’s father was more interested in guns more than his engineering job and almost more than Dell’s mother whom passed away just after Dell was born. Dell learned from his father how to use a pistol and a shot gun, the only two guns besides Dell’s creation, the sentry gun. He feels powerful to have a gun around and feels powerless without them, his sentry gun specifically.
Throughout his life, he was talked to as unintelligent mainly because most do not assume people with a southern accent like him are smart. This has him feel the need to show off his intelligence to others. Whenever he finds someone with something in common with him, he tries to befriend them. Not many people in Summers appreciated his talents, but when he moved to Robot City, many did.
His father mysteriously disappeared soon after he graduated high school, leaving his grandfather to raise him in Robot City instead. Then, Dell’s grandfather died not long after he turned 19, leaving him alone and since he skipped grades in school so fast, without any friends. He fears that everyone he loves, if he ever becomes friends with anyone or marries, will die off.
History: Dell was a straight-A student in his class and received a high school degree at the age of 13, allowing him to move onto college at such an early age. He loved to do things with his father and grandfather who were engineers as he is now. With his father, he would learn how to fend off against criminals and other such things using shotguns and pistols. With his grandfather, he would learn how to build things to use and trained him in the ways of Area Denial, not letting anyone pass a certain area.
His father mysteriously disappeared when Dell was 13, leaving him with his father’s shotgun and pistol. This left his grandfather to raise him. His grandfather lived in Robot City, so this meant he had to move there.
After earning his 2nd Science PhD, his grandfather passed away and on his deathbed, gave him an odd wrench that used to belong to Dell’s father and muttered to him, “Penguin… when the time… you’ll know.” Dell never understood why he said that, but became fascinated with penguins to find out why he said it. In his grandfather’s will, he received his house in Robot City and his modest amount of riches from his work in a past war.
From then on, Dell wanted to create the sentry gun, which was his grandfather’s engineering dream. He did create it, but did not use it for violence. Instead, he used it for showing off at engineering conventions in the city. One day, he saw a glorious light in the sky and after sunset would see a flash of light off toward Quetzal and would hear a buzzing inside his house, but he didn’t know where it was coming from. He assumed it must just be the effects of Aurora Mysteria. One morning, he awoke to hear the buzzing was louder and went to investigate…
- Steak with gravy and mushrooms sprinkled over the top.
- Country Guitar
PSI: None yet…
Skills: Dell loves to build and is very good at it! He can assemble a working sentry gun in less than one day with his trusty wrench passed down from his grandfather, who used it in a war long ago and is trying to find a way to do it faster. He has created a device that creates a shield around the sentry and a wireless device to control it, as it is programmed to hit what it senses on sight.
He likes to play his guitar and he is very good at it. He is searching for a device that can categorize things into his sentry’s memory so it may shoot specific things without Dell being by its side all the time.

chihaya01: Hahaha, funny, I created this fic several years ago that featured a galaxy called the Aqua Way. Interesting name, I might add, and considering she's also named after a music group that's similar in style to Candy and Andy. Oh, and I forgot to mention that you can have Aqua learn a second PSI technique in your next post, since everyone else learned another technique just recently.
*Kyurem*: Hmm, interesting character. I like it. We need an older guy in this RPG anyway, especially after Magikarpenter went AWOL. And you want another reason why he comes across as unintelligent? Because he uses guns. Well, maybe that's not quite a reason, but... Anyway, you are pending for now. Reason being that your non-PSI abilities seem a bit powerful to be used alongside PSI later on. Especially since everyone else just learned a new PSI technique in the RPG, meaning Dell would be learning PSI very shortly.
So you can do one of two things. You can either tone down the sentry gun stuff--perhaps getting rid of the self-destruct feature and making that his only weapon--or you can make him not capable of using PSI at all. Choosing the latter can give you the option of powering up your gun or obtaining others later on as well. But if you choose the former, you can pick a PSI technique for him to learn as soon as he arrives in Quetzal, since everyone else has learned a new PSI technique lately anyway.

I will get rid of the self destruct button on his sentry gun. Will I need to change anything else?
9th May 2012, 1:32 AM
Well, hmm, the sentry gun presents an interesting dilemma. Dell's skills sound very similar to what Jeff did in Earthbound--fixing things to make weapons. This skill is complex and powerful enough that he would seem overpowered if he had PSI as well. How can we make this into a skill that Dell can use alongside, hmm...?
Well, here's one idea. How about Dell has the Sentry Gun already (so he doesn't need to put it together), but it is faulty sometimes and Dell might have to make repairs on it as the RPG progresses? At the beginning of the RPG, the wireless control could not work at all, and the shield could work sporadically. If this works for you, then Dell is accepted.
Also, I noticed one small error in the last paragraph of your History. You might as well just delete all that stuff about the buzzing in Quetzal, as you'll be arriving there in your first post anyway. It's currently daytime in Quetzal, and the buzzing (assuming you mean the No Good Flies) started just a few minutes ago. Also, the musical instrument doesn't have to be one the characters play; it's just the one that has a similar "personality" to the character. Country guitar seems to be a good fit for Dell, but it's nice that he knows how to play it too. I know, it was an odd question that makes no sense to anyone who hasn't played Mother 3, but believe me, it is important.
And Dell will learn a PSI technique during the battle with the Fleshy Flower. Same goes for Aqua too, actually.

I was going to use PK Aura so Dell can repair his sentry using telekinesis, but someone else took that Psi... Actually, Dell does sound similar to Jeff, but he is based off of someone else. If Dell meets Jeff, I'm sure they will get along nicely. The buzzing was in his house, not in Quetzal. It starts when the light flashes in the jungle. I did this because Dell will encounter something left to him from his grandfather and then head to Quetzal because of it. Alright, that sounds about right about the sentry. I will do that!

That sounds acceptable. You're already accepted, so you can post in the RPG at any time.
