This looks like fun .Gives me a chance to have a run at a character backstory I have wanted to use for a long time but never could.
Now...just gotta find a way to make sure Direct sunlight won't kill him. (No I am not making a vampire).
Take a moment to consider just how nothing nothing really is....If you understand this, then you just solved the universe.
The truth that each person...each soul...is a book. And when we lay our feelings out in the open...and we give them no name...and we give them no author....and we give them no description.....who will actually read them..........?"

[Not Made by Me]
Name: Yuriko "Yuri" Tanaka, A.K.A. "Shadow"
Powers and Skills: Yuriko's power is to turn invisible. While invisable, she can move through walls, as long as they aren,t protected by any sort of magic barrier. The main downside to her power though, is that her shadow does not turn invisable as well. At night or in the dark, this isn't really a problem; in the light however, her shadow is still visable. She cannot be touched by physical things while invisable, put it only lasts for a certain amount of time, and she can still be hit by things such as magic projectiles or electricity.
Yuriko has several weapons, including kunais, a katana, and a foldable bow. Though she is skilled at using them, they aren't very advanced technology-wise. She also has fast reflexes and high stamina.
Yuriko stands at a rather short 5'2'', however she is highly athletic and strong despite her small stature. Because of this people often underestimate her, even though she could suplex someone twice her body weight. Her skin is pale and smooth, with no signs of scars or blemishes. Her hair is dark blue and is long, but is tied back in a ponytail. Like her hair, her eyes are blue as well.
Yuriko wears a traditional black ninja uniform, including a black gi and pants, and also wears straw sandals. Strapped to her back are the sheath of her katana, her foldable bow, and a quiver holding all of her arrows. Where her kunais are carried on her body however is a top secret.
Personality: Yuriko is a calm person with a strong sense of justice. She is a kind and caring person, who likes to help anyone in need. She is patient and methotical, mainly thanks to her training as a spy. Even though she cares for her fellow people, Yuriko isn't very trusting of other people, especially strangers. She is a fairly silent person, partially because of her tending to isolate herself from others, an partially because she is actually incrediblely shy. She gets embarressed easily and constantly is trying to impress or prove herself to her peers and superiors.
History: Yuriko was born in the Eurasia region, in the part that would be Japan if the world wasn't one giant pangea. Her family is a long line of ninjas who have served as spies for generations. Their bloodline also inherates special powers that are unique to each individual member, all of which tend to help with espionage. Currently, the Tanaka family works for the government.
When she was a child, Yuriko was trained to be a ninja and utilize her special powers. Her power was specifically powerful compared to most members of her family, and because of this was seen as special, which made her sister and three brothers be jealous of the attention her parents gave her.
When monsters began to appear in large numbers, the Tanaka clan ninjas were asked by SPIRIT to assist them in corraling the monsters and returning them to sender. They answered the call, and all abled bodied ninjas joined them. Yuriko was seperated from the rest of her family (much to discomfort), and placed in a different unit. Now it is time for her to prove herself to her peers and her family, show that she truely is a master ninja.
Anything Else?: She has a three brothers, the oldest, a 25 year old named Hiro, and two twin brothers who are 20 named Ryu and Arashi. She also has a 16 year old sister named Sakura.
Yes I'm using Leo again. :P The two RPs I have him in are... slow. :/ Also, every group needs a guy like Leo. xD
Feli is going to love his powers. :P (I can pick out a different one if you want though.)
Name: Leonardo "Leo" Silverstone
Codename: Lucky Star
Powers: Leo has the ability to control luck and chance. He can make likely things not happen, and improbable (though not impossible) things to happen. He doesn't have much control over this ability, strange things just randomly seem to happen when he's around. His powers don't glow or anything when they're working, causing others to doubt he has powers at all.
He is very agile and quick due to working out as a teenger, and his luck powers only enhance this. He can pull if some really fancy moves... if he's lucky. He doesn't carry any weapons. If he needs one, he'll usually find something lying around to use. (Like a rock, or an unusually pointy stick...)
Appearance: Leo stands at exactly 6'0". While he does not have bodybuilder proportions, he does have a toned athletic physique that he is quite proud of. Due to living in a tropical place most of his life, and because he often goes outdoors, his skin is lightly tanned. Not pale, but not bronzed either. His face is round, and rather boyish. Marked by large, expressive, blue eyes. These features give him a rather youthful appearance. He has short, close cropped black hair, with messy bangs that cover his forehead, and go to his eyebrows. A strand of hair on top of his head always stands up, no matter how much he tries to comb it down. Except for the top of his head, and eyebrows, the rest of his upper body is void of any hair. (As in, no chest hair, no armpit hair, and he can't grow any facial hair
For clothing, Leo generally wears what is comfortable. Usually, whatever he pulls out of his closet that day. It usually includes a pair of jeans or cargo shorts, and sneakers or sandals on his feet. He can often be found without a shirt. This is because he was rather scrawny when he was younger, so now that he's put on a little muscle, he likes to show off the results. When he must wear a shirt, it will usually be a skintight tank top, or something low cut/not buttoned/zipped up all the way, and without a shirt underneath. He's not comfortable wearing cloaks or heavy clothing that covers him up too much. He will dress up for formal occasions and colder days when he needs to, but he usually takes it right off when he's able. He wears a pair of aviator goggles on top of his head. He doesn't use them, he just thinks they look cool. His favorite outfit is a red, form fitting tank top, with black stripes, and a zipper down the front, and a pair of jeans held up by a belt. His sneakers are red and black, and have wheels in the soles. The wheels can pop in and out when Leo puts weight on his heels, allowing them to function like roller skates. He carries his things in a simple pink backpack.
Personality: Leo is a bright, cheerful person with an optimistic view on life. He can often be found with a smile on his face, even when things look bleak. He believes there is some good in everyone, and for that, he is very trusting of others. A genuine nice guy, he is always willing to help someone in need. Often putting the needs of others ahead of his own. Sometimes though, he can be too nice, to the point of gullibility, and people often take advantage of him for it. Leo is very outgoing and social. He likes meeting new people, and making new friends. He is not afraid to strike up a conversation with a random stranger. He is loyal, empathetic, and very protective of those he cares about, making him a good friend to have.
Leo is very energetic. So much so, that it is very difficult for him to sit still and concentrate on one thing for long periods of time. While he is able to think quick on his feet during intense situations. he often acts impulsively, and jumps to conclusions without thinking first. Unlike a lot of guys he's known, Leo is the type of guy who wears his heart on his sleeve, (which is funny, because he doesn't usually wear sleeves.) His feelings are there for everyone to see, and he's pretty easy to read. He even cries openly if something upsets that much, and he is affectionate towards close friends. Due to his cheerful nature, it's difficult to anger him. Push him too far however, and he can be quite dangerous. That said, Leo isn't one to hold grudges for very long, and is very quick to forgive people. He has an affinity for cute things, and he's not ashamed of it at all.
History: Leo was born and raised in North America, where Florida would be. He was the oldest of three siblings, and the only male among the three. His parents' relationship became strained after his father, Lorenzo, lost his job shortly after the youngest daughter was born, and the family started experiencing financial troubles. It was not helped by Lorenzo turning to Wine to drown his sorrows, which worried the rest of the family. Lorenzo and his wife, Layla, often argued loudly during the night. While things never escalated to physical violence, but the yelling still made the three kids uncomfortable. Despite the drama, Leo tried to put on a brave face, and hoped things would work out in the end. They almost did too... Eventually, Layla got a promotion at her job that made up for the loss of income, but by then, the damage was done, and Lorenzo filed for divorce.
Leo currently lives with his mom, and his younger sisters Lilly and Lucy. He is much closer to his mother than with his father. They were not wealthy, but they weren't poor either. Being a single parent, Layla often had to work long hours, leaving Leo responsible for looking after his sisters, and taking care of household things while she worked. Unlike a lot of other boys though, Leo didn't really mind this, and actually enjoyed doing it. As a result of this, he became accustomed to taking care of people. He also learned a lot of domestic skills, and became very good at cooking.
He was a rather scrawny child, and he was often picked on by bullies who thought he was weaker than them. It did not help that he was a sensitive kid, and he had a taste for things that are usually considered girly by others. He would come home with bruises on a regular basis. His father did not help matters by suggesting that living in a house full of girls was turning him into one. While all the bullying upset him, he kept up a cherful demeanor in front of others, not wanting to burden others with his problems, and if he thinks positively, things will get better. He was also the resident Jinx. Misfortune always seemed to follow him, and he often got blamed for it.
Around the time Leo entered puberty, things started to change. His mother announced that her office was starting a branch in a new city, and that the family would be moving there. His situation began to improve when he started High School. Deciding that he no longer wanted to be a wimp, and a constant bullying victim, he started working out and getting into Sports, which resulted in him putting on a little muscle, and making new friends. Due to his social personality, he quickly became quite popular on campus, particularly with other girls. He also maintained good grades. Things were actually starting to look up. Despite how well things were going, he didn't let it get to his head. He still remained the same sensitive kid he always was on the inside. His luck also improved, and was instead considered a living lucky charm by his classmates.
Leo is almost about to finish school, and is wondering what he should do afterwards. Recently, Leo was contacted by SPIRT to join their cause because they felt his luck powers would be useful. Up untill then, he wasn't even aware he had powers to start with. While he's glad to be helping, he doesn't completely believe every supernatural creature is evil. Surely there must be one good fairy or something left?
This is the most accurate picture of him. (Better than the Tektek.) Especially the hair.

I initially wanted my character to have eye-stealing powers so that he could steal the petrification abilities of a cockatrice or gorgon. But then, I have too many.
The extra outfits should be seen as additional ways to channel Gin's abilities, not seperate abilities. Androgynous Blood has its weaknesses, so I decided to drop that in. I don't even know if it'll be used positively.
Name: Real Name Unknown, but uses the moniker 'Gin Furukawa'. Code Name: The Detective
Gender: Male, although he looks, acts and dresses female.
Powers and Skills: Gin is a magician. His main ability is what he calls 'Rainbow Magic'. In its most basic state, Rainbow Magic is in the form of simple, chrome energy spheres/rays. However, when his hands make contact with a certain element (touching the floor does not count, and neither does being in an area where the air remains still. However, rocky terrains and windy areas count.), his non-elemental basic attack becomes that of the element he is in contact with. For example, when he dips his hands into a water body, he can control water. When he is in a burning area, he has control over fire, and so on. This ability can be used to convert his opponent's attacks into his own, although he will still be affected by the attack.
Gin Furukawa possesses a certain passive ability, and the Stiltons, which include Gin, are the only known humans to possess the magic ability known as 'Androgynous Blood'. This ability allows the user to use gender-discriminant objects that generally cannot be used by the holder's gender. The user can also make gender-discriminant attacks take effect on both genders. However, in turn, these gender-discriminant attacks can also affect those with Androgynous Blood, no matter the gender.
Gin is able to materialise equipment from his personal pocket dimension, where he can store things and possibly use for later use. This pocket dimension rarely contains anything, except two important outfits - The Rainbow Knight and the Sonic Silver, along with their respective weaponry. Even in these forms, Gin can activate his Rainbow Magic in the form of melee attacks and bullets respectively. He uses these in order to make up for his lack of athletic ability.
As the Rainbow Knight, Gin wields a rainbow European longsword known as the 'Seven Coloured Blade'. The Rainbow Knight's armour resembles that of a medieval knight's, except it has the different colours of the rainbow radiating from it. in this state, Gin's hair, too, has changed to a chrome-like hue.This blade is capable of replicating itself. Gin is very bad at using longswords as lances so the best he can do in this form is dual-wield. These blades can take the forms of a hammer as well. The Rainbow Knight's armour greatly enhances defense and melee combat skills, but reduces speed.
As the Sonic Silver, Gin wields two pairs of silver-hued Desert Eagles which shoot silver bullets which have the power of Gin's rainbow magic. These four Desert Eagles are known as Dainn Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Durapror. Dainn and Dvalinn can combine to form what looks like a PGM Hecate II, and Duneyrr and Durapror are capable of doing the same. All four guns can combine to form what Gin calls 'Eikbyrnir', a heavy machine gun that may look too big for Gin to carry. The Sonic Silver's outfit consists of a silver visor for greater accuracy, and also to cover Gin's eyes. In this form, Gin is scantily clad, with then breast-pads with no strings attached covered his tiny chest, and a silver crotch plate with no strings or sides. Needless to say, it is easy to see the Sonic Silver's bare back. Accompanying these are the Sonic Silver's silver boots and shiny silver gloves. This outfit is said to be forged from a single branch of Yggdrasil, by Gin's mother. It greatly enhances speed, dexterity and far-range offense, but defense is sacrificed.
Gin also has a familiar, known as Tamae. She is a nine-tailed fox. Tamae can control what one calls 'Rainbow Flare'. This flame does not burn at all. When one is engulfed in it, one will feel great pain and torture, which is generally used as a cruel distraction. Its element depends on the current element of Gin's 'Rainbow Magic'. Tamae can activate a 'Berserk Mode', which makes her temporarily lose her sanity and become stronger.
Description: Despite his age, Gin takes on the appearance of a young preschooler. He is slightly less than a matre tall, which is really, really short. His skin is fair and almost snow white. He has long, silver hair embedded onto his little head, donned in a hime-cut and almost touching the ground. His fringe hides his eyes, which nobody has seen before. His limbs are thin and feminine, and he has slight curves.
For casual purposes, Gin can often be seen wearing a simple white dress when he is not working. Often, his head would be donned with a straw hat. His legs will be seen with white running shoes.
While on the job, Gin dons a grey-hued cloak over his main outfit. His outfit would consist of a white hat which resembles that of Sherlock Holmes'. Sometimes, Gin applies red lipstick to his lips for extra charm. Gin wears a black dress underneath his cloak, which are generally used to show whatever curves he has. He also has black thigh-highs, along with black boots decorating his feet.
Tamae, Gin's familiar, is 1.8 metres tall. Her skin is nearly snow-white and her figure is curvacious and slender with a solid D-cup. Black hair sits on her head, almost reaching down to the ground. While her eyes are a blood red, she is still a good fox, and not exactly a demon in any case. One is able to see an adorable-looking fang on her mouth, and you can see even more when she bares her teeth. Her white fox ears pop out from her head, and one who is observant notes that she lacks human ears. Nine snow white, fluffy fox tails that are usually half the length of her long, slender legs emerge as an extention of her spine. These tails can extend to 1.5 times their size.
While Tamae's casual wear varies, while on the job, she is often seen wearing a red kimono that reveals about half her chest. She can be seen wearing wooden sandals worn by ancient Japanese people. Her thighs are revealed in this outfit, in order to allow enhanced movement. Sometimes, a white fox mask can be seen on one side of her head.
In her 'Berserk Mode', Tamae reveals her true form which she has almost no control over. This form is a giant, white, nine-tailed fox the size of a double decker bus, engulfed in rainbow-hued flames. Her teeth are razor-sharp and her more intimidating eyes scream murder.
Personality: Gin Furukawa is often depicted and seen to be a lady-like young one, trying to be calm and composed in most situations. Gin Furukawa, while being a mysterious individual, does not exactly give a sense of mystery. In fact, Gin Furukawa is usually a grumpy, fiesty one when he is not surpressing his emotions, which probably explains why he snaps so easily. He may be a total grump, but he forgives people easily. The only ones he actually talks to nicely are his familiar Tamae, his family, and any old acquaintance. The more bonds he forms with people, the less he snaps at them.
Gin Furukawa is rather tsundere, especially towards his familiar Tamae. While he does treat her coldly at times, he does sincerely care for her more than he cares for anything else. He is shown to display this trait to other members of SPIRIT when he is is a good mood.
Despite such an ill personality, Gin Furukawa will make an effort to be good to his allies and comrades in any possible way. He will often offer help to them in his tsundere-like manner, or sometimes, speak rudely.
History: Gin Furukawa descends from a long, wealthy lineage of magicians known as the Stiltons. His real family name is Stilton, but up until today, not even to craftiest of souls are able to find out his real name. His father was one of the more powerful magicians in the family, whereas his mother, Iris Pendragon, was always out researching on magic artifacts related to mythology and such. It is unknown why he wanted to hide his real name, but he just did.
Gin Furukawa was born in the European areas of Eurasia, where he trained in the art of magic and grew. Physically, he grew little. Mentally, he matured. He was always alone, with little to no friends at school, which would explain his attitude.
He moved to the Japan of Eurasia, where instead of living in a mansion like in Europe, he lived in an apartment, alone. One day, while he was going to pay a visit to his relatives, he was required to pass through a forest route. There, he saw a battle between a Satori and Kyubii no Kitsune. The Kitsune looked defenseless and did not fight back. In order to help her, Gin released a few spells on the Satori, chasing it away. The Kitsune introduced herself as Tamae, and as a form of appreciation, offered to form a contract with Gin and become his familiar. Gin took a while before finally accepting.
All this, including the fact that the Stiltons even exist, was unknown to the government. The government does, however know that Gin Furukawa was known among people as 'The Detective', a Private Investigator who uses magic to solve cases and supernatural mysteries. At first, it was simple beings, such as vampires and werewolves. Gin noted something weird when more powerful beings such as Frost Giants and even the Yamata no Orochi, which he probably couldn't have survived without Tamae's constant assistance. In fact, he only scarred the giant creatures before escaping.
He could get help from family, but his family was always busy. Thus, he noted how a new organisation by the government, SPIRIT, was being announced. He knew that these people would be able to aid him in fighting these creatures.
Anything Else: At first(And there is a chance it may stay this way), everyone believes that Gin is a girl.
This looks like a fun RP to join. A reserve, if you would.

The name's DIANE.
Name: Jared Thimbletack
Powers and Skills: He has the ability to communicate with various creatures, animal and fantasy alike. He has two creatures that help him with his research:
Firstly there is Bronc, a griffon that Jared created by combining the DNA of an eagle and a lion. Bronc helps him to get specimens of other creatures, and protects him if there is danger. Bronc's abilities involve flight, razor sharp claws and hawk-like vision.
Second there is Sylph, a fairies, who helps him with the little things around the lab. Jared created Sylph by accident when he was creating a human-insect creature and one of his wizard-ish freinds accidently dumped some magic powder into the specemin. Her powers include low level healing being generally annoying.
Jared, is an expert on genetic experimentation, and most of his information is firsthand. He usually wears jeans and a T-shirt, and has a necklace that has a trolls foot on it (Sylph told him that they bring good luck). He is white and average height, but very thin compared to most humans. His hair is jet black and is usually short cropped, but sometimes he forgets to schedule an appointment to get it cut so it grows long, and the same thing happens with his beard.
He has several scars from raising Bronc and miscellaneous encounters with other mythological creatures. The most noticeable is on the back of his left hand, which is a semicircle of little inch long scars.
He is very absent minded when he gets new information on fairies, and it gets on Sylph's nerves. When he is out in the field collecting data he can be very courageous, even when Bronc isn't with him. He once brought down a shape shifting ogre with just a knife, but isn't eager to do it again. When he around other people (which isn't very often) he is often looked upon as strange and eccentric, and he knows it, which is why he tries to keep his distance.
He was bor and raised in the little country that is in between India and Antartica.
He first realised that he could communicate with other creatures when a harpie was about to attack him and he begged it to spare him, and during its momentary supprise at being understood, he slayed it.
After that he decided to create his own creatures and created several. His two favorites are bronc and Sylph, who help him to gather data for new experiments.
Years later, when the paranormal sightings and attacks became more prevalent, he was approached by a cloaked figure. The men told him that he was being brought in to consult about the recent paranormal happenings. Jared was puzzled, because his specialty was genetic experimentation not ghouls and the like. But they didn't exactly take 'no' for an answer, for they attacked him and took him to their headquarters. Once there Jared released Sylph and told her to bring Bronc, and away she went. Unfortunately, Jared realized that this organization were the good guys, and he had no way to tell Bronc that he didn't need saving. So there was a mild incident when Bronc arrived but it was handled easily.
So now he works as an expert on paranormal DNA at SPIRIT, and he will go into the field occasionally to obtain new specimens.
Anything Else?: Even though he is mainly a lab rat, he does go out into the field and fight with the others. In these fights, He usually rides Bronc, and Sylph will be safe in his coat pocket.
(I might add more before the RP actually starts)
I agree to the new rule.

Now to get started on these sign-ups...
@Billy Mays: I kind of expected more... I saw that you shortened the description because you had an avatar, and I guess I'll accept that... I like that you put a limitation on her powers. Overall, she'll be Accepted, I know that you're good, but maybe you could still add a little more to the personality or something?
@Monster Guy: Heh, his power seems like it would have a comical effect, it could work. XD Although, he can't escape every single with luck, but I have an idea of how it would be like. Your sign-up's good so, Accepted.
@Samantha Sparks: Hmm, I'm iffy on the powers. It seems like a lot. I want the abilities to be more concise. To me it looks like there's elements, Androgynous Blood, pocket dimension with suit power ups, and the familiar.
I'm going to have to ask that you remove the familiar, all supernatural beings are corrupt at this point, and I categorize the nine-tailed fox as one, sorry for not saying it earlier. I just realized it now. Even if he saved her, I just don't want anyone to have a supernatural. Again, I apologize.
I don't really see what kind of role Androgynous Blood will play in this RP, which is why I'll let you keep it if you want.
I wasn't too sure about having the ability to have access to all elements, so I want you to put a limitation. As in, he can only control the basic forms of the elements, so he can't go from water to ice, or fire to lightning, earth to metal, etc. He can just control water, fire, earth and so on.
Now, the pocket dimension and suits. I like that they have certain side effects, but they feel like power ups to me. I think I'd feel better if you had one of them, because he might need a suit after all. The pocket dimension should only have that suit.
Other than that, the rest is great, but you have to adjust the parts including the familiar. Your Pending for now.
@ansem the wise: You're going to have to change the character... it revolves around supernatural beings and they are all corrupt. I want more detail as well, at least give 'em a last name. Also, name his birth place or where he grew up. The diversity would make the RP interesting. I'll put you in as Pending for now.
I'm going to split the team into two, that way we don't travel in one giant group. Which means, I will be creating another leader, specifically, Lucas Kendall. Just wanted to notify you guys.

Hey Laughs, any restrictions on the age, I would love my charecter to be very old as I have a great idea for it.

I wrote it late at night and I tried to get it done quickly. Besides, it mainly only seems short due to how ridiculously big Monster and Samantha's sign ups are. :/ I could probably add more...
Ooh, can I take a second character too? :3
Oh man are sign ups still open? Could I get a reserve if so? ouo
Cameron has to be put under Luke. XD
