Description: Blake stands at about 5ft 10. He's a relatively built guy, with well rounded muscled arms, broad shoulders, and toned body with a tan from all the surfing he does as well as hanging out with Kyornik and his other friends at the beach. He's got short black hair that always looks like it was upswept by a sweet surf swell on the left side to the top. he's got a broad but not to broad face, green eyes, a slightly pointed nose, a lightly shaved beard with side burns and a a lightly shaved mustache. He's also got a tattoo of a tribal great white shark on his back. Blake wears mostly tank tops and skater shorts wherever he goes. He usually weres a Black Billabong brand tanktop with a a swirling blue vortex design on the front with the words Rip surge written on the back in blue outlined in white. he wears green camo skate shorts with a picture of Bob Marley and a lion on the left pants leg and wears either his black and green sneakers or black and green flip flops. He also tends to wear a pair of shades to look extra cool. he wears a white digital watch, nothing too fancy on his left hand and a black and green friendship bracelet on his right arm which he got from Kyornik
Blake is originally from Eagleland, Fourside to be more exact. His father is a famous hotshot lawyer that winning every single case the courts threw at him. His mother is also a world renowned home decor stylist, and has clients that range from the regular citizens to the rich and famous. She's a very successful businesswoman and has opened up her shops in many areas. When the city life was just getting to mundane, his parents decided they needed to move to an area where they could relax very lavishly. When he was 10, His family moved from Fourside to Summers where they furthered their success.(In case you don't know by now, Blake is super RICH!!) Growing up in the city, he used to skateboard around the parks and different skate areas as well as play tennis and soccer. He has a little sister as well, whom he fiercely defends. When Blake moved to Summers, it was the first time he'd really seen the ocean. He'd been traveling to different areas with his parents sometimes, but this was the first time he went on a beach and played in the sea. That same day, he saw a surfer pulling off amazing tricks and instantly loved it. He became obsessed with water sports such as wake boarding, wind surfing, water skiing and etc. he also decided to study marine biology and oceanography when he got to college so he could learn more about the ocean.
Personality: Blake is a cool guy. He can be cocky and arrogant at times, but more than not he's pretty laid back. He's liked by many, so he's very popular with the girls as well as the skater and water sports crowds. He enjoys partying to the max. Drinking large amounts of alcahol, dancing, and just living it up is his thing. As far as school goes, he does well. He's no star pupil or teacher's pet and he'd prefer to be out on the swells any day than be in class. When angered, Blake can become a monster. He's very physically strong and has good fighting instincts, so he can do some hefty damage, and sometimes he can be a bit insensitive to others when he's drunk, but doesn't mean any of it....sometimes. Blake is also fiercely protective of his sister and close friends, willing to fight and beat faces should anyone mess with them, but all in all he's a cool guy that likes to chill out and have a good time.

Okay, so Amanda's becoming so central to the plot of this RPG that I might as well create a signup for her:
Name: Amanda Tibbet
Appearance: Amanda is the small and delicate type, and invokes a certain aura of dislike at first glance. She's only about 5'2" tall, with a figure bony enough to make you think that she hardly ever eats anything. Likewise, her curly light-brown hair has thinned out a little bit, making her ears stick out through it. She likes to wear a lot of dark makeup around her hazel eyes, especially with a bit of purple mixed in. This functions to draw at least some attention away from the bags under her eyes. To accompany this, her lips are often covered with dark purple lipstick.
Amanda dresses in a somewhat contemporary yet somewhat gothic style. Foremost among her usual outfit is a black T-shirt depicting the metal band Ravenesque, with their logo: a raven silhouetted against the moon atop a tombstone, with a purple rose in its beak. Below this, she wears another shirt with purple sleeves that reach just past her elbows. A few linear scars are visible on her exposed forearms. Around her neck is a choker made of black lace and featuring a red diamond-shaped charm. She also wears dark blue skinny jeans, not that her legs need to look any skinnier than they already are. On her feet are black boots almost as high as her knees, with buckles on the sides.
Amanda is hardly ever seen without a messenger bag slung across her chest, a black one with a skull design on the front. Within this bag she keeps two important items. One is a knife. The other is a wand consisting of a thin black rod with a red ball at the end, and black bat wings on the side. She likes to use this wand to focus her PSI abilities. When not using it, she keeps it tucked inside her bag with the winged ball at the end sticking out.
Personality: With her highly sadistic personality and almost maniacal love of having pain inflicted upon herself, one might wonder why in the world she is one of the Chosen Ones destined to find the source of the Aurora Mysteria. Indeed, she wanders about the world with a love of all things dark and dangerous. Seeing people suffer makes her feel powerful and energised. When looking at someone, she is very likely to think fascinating, malicious thoughts about them. She relishes the fact that she can use PSI, and very much likes to show off the powers she has.
Around most people, Amanda adopts a cynical and sardonic nature. In a very dry and dull fashion, she makes fun of the situation or the people in them. The only point where she will show any amusement is if it involves things rumoured to be scary or painful. Truly, she laughs in the face of pain, and doesn't mind hurting herself in order to get what she wants. She might actually like hurting herself to get what she wants. In all these ways, it is very easy for people to have a negative first impression of her, or even to be intimidated by her--or pity her, more likely.
The question is, though, is Amanda really on the side of the good guys here? Despite her malicious persona, Amanda seems about as keen as putting an end to huge evil threats as the other Chosen Ones might be. Her most common targets are enemies rather than innocent people, indicating she might have a bit of a good side. However, given her tendency to get carried away with tormenting her enemies, this might not be true. That added to the rather selfish and shrewd attitude she takes on around others often frightens people away from bring friends with her. But does she even want friends? Probably not. Who knows?
Like any unusual person, Amanda has several little quirks. Given the frequency with which she inflict pain upon herself, she might seem tense and uptight at times, but any sort of soft music has been known to relax her. Same thing with storytelling, especially if the story in question is a faery tale or other type of fantasy story. She loves dragons and anything purple, and holds a strong belief in magic in general.
History: Amanda wasn't always like this. When she was younger, she was a peaceful and mild-mannered girl, curious about the world yet happy at home. She was born in the port town of Toto in the country of Summers, a town famous for its ships and stray cats. Both of her parents worked at an expensive hotel in the beach strip of Summers, but her father was also a substitute history teacher at the Summers branch of Reynard University. As for Amanda herself, she was known as the girl who enjoyed reading picture books and who seemed stuck in a faery tale, given the frequency with which she would carry her oversized dragon plushie around.
It remains a mystery, then, why Amanda got the malicious powers she did when the Aurora Mysteria started. It was true that she was curious about black magic through her early teenage years. One of her favourite things to do in school was try to put curses on people, particularly bullies who teased her for her scrawny appearance. This wasn't really a problem though, at least not according to her parents, who didn't believe that the curses Amanda cast actually worked. They probably didn't either, as nobody could use PSI back then. And despite all that, Amanda was still on pretty friendly terms with her more benevolent schoolmates, though she didn't make that many friends due to focusing on her own fantasy world. She came across as aloof back then, but not necessarily malevolent. Classmates clealy saw her curse-casting as a joke.
On the first day of the Aurora Mysteria, Amanda ran away from her house, after befriending a black lizard which had shown itself before her. This lizard claimed to be spiritually bonded to her, in a way. It also explained the basics of PSI to her, describing it as a form of ancient magic. What especially intrigued Amanda about it was the fact that she could actually use PSI, pretty much as soon as the lizard mentioned it. PSI that would allow her to make the fake curses she put on her classmates a potential reality, in fact.
Was it the power she got from being able to use PSI that corrupted her? Did the Aurora Mysteria itself change her in some way? The reasons were mysterious, but Amanda changed that day. Where once she was mild-mannered and maybe a bit shy, she now took on a more vicious and fearless outlook. Where once she derived some enjoyment of the pleasures of life, she instead developed a love of the suffering that came with it. And yet, she still managed to be dragged into the plot to save the world from the evil the Aurora Mysteria brought about, apparently as one of the Chosen Ones destined to bring about this change. An anti-hero, perhaps...
Favourite food: Split pea soup. Her mum makes the best. Not that she would ever eat it nowadays, or anything for that matter.
Favourite thing: Pain. Whether upon herself or upon someone else, she's absolutely in love with it.
Favourite animal: It would be a dragon, but due to mundane restrictions, it's a lizard. A black lizard, very fitting for her nature.
Musical instrument: The ominous pipe organ.
PSI capable? Yes
PSI: PK Hex (and later, PSI Magnet and PK Pain)
Skills: She doesn't seem to have any other special skills...

And here's a signup for Ari, Gon's little sister. Heh, seems like every two months now, one of us posts a new signup for a character.
Name: Mariko "Ari" Tsukimaru
Appearance: Just by looking at Ari, one can tell that she probably spends most of her time indoors. This is evident in the light almond-coloured tone of her skin, and how much definition and mass her figure lacks. If anything, she's more on the fragile side. She is still relatively small, standing about four and a half feet in height. She keeps her straight black hair just long enough touch her shoulders, with shorter fringe in the front. Because her dark olive-brown eyes cannot see things very clearly, she wears over them a pair of glasses with bright purple, oval-shaped frames. While she's in front of a computer screen in the dark, which she often is, her eyes take on a mildly purplish hue from the light.
Ari was never one to dress in too showy a fashion, though she certainly likes the colour blue. Her favourite piece of clothing is a cute little deep blue hat with lighter blue stripes across it, with a brim just wide enough to shade her face if and when she goes out in the sun. She usually matches this with a long blue coat with buttons down the length in the front, which fits snugly around her. Comfort does seem to be a priority in her clothing style, as evidenced by how pliable her coat is and how she wears gray sweats underneath. Whenever she gets the rare chance to go outside, she tucks the latter into the calf-high black boots on her feet, and also slings her little gray purse over her shoulder.
Personality: When Ari is around other people, she often seems lost or confused. Nowadays, she isolates her mind in a virtual world where she alone is free to go about. It's as if she's bored with the world around her, preferring to keep to her own self. She has lost most of her curiosity, timid around others and unwilling to explore new things. If situations change, she frets over what things used to be like.
It takes a long time to get Ari interested in something. She's very particular about what she likes, and prefers to go with the usual routine. However, she does do a good job at sticking with the things she is interested in. She doesn't easily give up, and doesn't easily forget things either. In many ways she could almost be the opposite of her older brother Gon--most notably her shyness as a contrast to his comfortability around people, and her insular attitude towards things as opposed to Gon's openness to change.
However, this doesn't mean Ari is necessarily a miser. She actually appears somewhat cheerful, usually with a faint little smile on her face. Few things in the world move her, which prevents her from being easy to startle like Gon is. She's not that good with showing much emotion either, maybe not even feeling it either. Perhaps she's just the silent protagonist of a video game she lives in. But at least she's a calm one: it's hard to upset her or get her especially worked up about something. When a problem arises in her life, she hardly ever worries about it, instead seeing it as a puzzle she might or might not feel like solving. Yes, she can be apathetic at times.
Yes, that's a little quirk about Ari: she's really into all things virtual. In fact, all that time she spends on the computer seems to have "threatened to turn her mind into a computer", as her father jokingly warned once. She really is a thinker, and follows a highly logical thought process when it comes to decision-making and interpretation. And, just like the typical computer, if she tries to do too many things at once, she'll freeze and will subsequently lose all unsaved data. She even likes to slip computer terms into her description of her daily life--for example, when she has to visit a doctor, she says she's going to "complete a virus scan".
History: Once upon a time, Ari had an "offline" life. Quite a happy one, in fact. Growing up with her parents and older brother in Sunrise, having a safe yet fun childhood, enjoying the place she called home... The times she could especially recall were her adventures around Robot City with "Hiroshi-kun", as Ari would often refer to her brother as, and also taking their robotic puppy Chi-Chi on a walk. Growing up in Robot City, Ari quickly became fascinated with all the cool electronic gadgets they had on display in some of the stores, with the number of everyday things that can be simplified with a computer, and with the hectic yet exciting life of the city.
Throughout her early life, Ari was complacent and easygoing, not really being much of any trouble to anyone. She really liked the world she was shown, and the family she grew up with. Hardly ever did she want to be alone, unless she was really tired and just wanted to sleep. She was never much of a dreamer, and she never had any real ambitions; she just enjoyed life as it came, and was happy being in Robot City.
And then, when Ari was about eight years old, she became the most shocked she had ever been in her life: her parents announced that they were planning to move away, all the way to Eagleland. Gon was excited about this move, being in anticipation of what the city of Discovery was like, but Ari was not. She loved Robot City. She was happy there. And now that was all going to be taken away from her. Her parents kept reassuring her that they would still remain a family, that nothing was going to change and that they were simply in a different location. But even so, Ari got homesick very quickly. Discovery was just not the same. It didn't interest her as much as Robot City used to. Not by a long shot.
And it didn't help that because of rumoured gang activity floating around Discovery, Ari and Gon were discouraged from their usual exploration of the city. Gon occasionally suggested hanging out together more often anyway, but Ari said she just wasn't interested. In fact, she didn't quite know what she wanted to do. It was as if the move alienated her from her family--that her family was meant to be back in Sunrise, not here. So the only thing she could really turn to was the computer the family had brought over from the move.
On the computer, one thing Ari liked to do was play a MMORPG game called Airedge. It was a game where she could play as one of several mythical creatures and wander around the world, using magic to influence things or even keeping little virtual pets. She liked other games as well, being particularly good at a bullet-dodging game named Saihou and a music composition game called Magic Dot Composer. When she wasn't playing any of these, she was usually fiddling with computer code and trying to learn how to program all the stuff computers did. She pretty much only left the computer for school and mealtime, or for when her parents needed to use the computer, in which case she would silently watch TV with Gon.
When the Aurora Mysteria hit, Ari still spent most of her time on the computer, save for when her family dragged her into the backyard so that they could all view it together. Her first impression of it was some mysterious entity trying to "hack" into the world, creating these odd creatures for people to fight and "destining" some people with PSI powers or other skills. Ari spent much time looking up the kinds of enemies people found all over the world, documenting them and even imagining stats for them. She found the whole appearance of these strange creatures kind of amusing, actually.
That is, until one night when she suddenly found that she was not in Discovery anymore...
Favourite food: Curry, just like Gon.
Favourite thing: Computers
Favourite animal: Mouse (partly because most computers come with one, partly because mice are cute and all)
Musical instrument: Synthesizer
Ability: Copy Drive - A little memory stick that Ari left in her pocket while being kidnapped. Through this process, and factoring in Ari's prior work in analyzing all those enemy reports, the memory stick became the Copy Drive. The drive can scan pretty much every living being out there, temporarily copying some of its abilities. However, it can only copy PSI techniques and special abilities enemies have--it doesn't do much of anything when used on a person. And the stronger the target or the more diverse its abilities, the more limited the Copy Drive's capability of copying it is. When using copied abilities, the Copy Drive creates holographic representations of whatever is necessary to launch the attack--but it seems to work just like the real thing, though it maybe a little less powerful than the real thing. And lastly, it cannot copy the Chosen Ones' PK Favourites at all, due to an unknown error.
