Yuri Nakatomi, club president.
Looking up from her magazine, Yuri gives Knox a wide grin "Of course you're in! Remi-san and Kobayashi-san vouch for you, and I'm sure the rest won't mind. Speaking of which, where are they? It's about time we got this meeting started..."
I guess we should leave some grace time for the other players to join and if they don't just move along, taking in consideration they're otherwise detained?
I remember Soapy saying something about creating a vice-president character so I don't know if we should wait for that too.
Anyway as a preventive measure, I'm posting the characters from the recruitment thread.
Yuri Nakatomi, club president, unwitting heiress of monster hunters, living among them
SpoilerName: Yuri Nakatomi
Prefered Student Type: Hero/Heroine
Otaku - The Paranormal
Sibling Inferiority Complex
SpoilerThe Nakatomi clan possesses a reputation amongst the oldest families in the world as one of the longest standing genealogy of monster hunters. Nowadays they spend less time tracking the unheard horrors of beyond and more trying to broker a peaceful coexistence between mortals and the less hostile denizens of the deep. Circles of magi, vampire covens, werewolf clans alike have come to rely on the services of the former monster hunting families. That is the reason why, instead of being trained to hunt by the time she was six, the younger sibling Yumi was left out completely from the family tradition.
Still the Nakatomi blood flows within her, and her senses are as keen as any member of her clan. She is aware there is something out there, even if she can't exactly say what it is. She suspects there's something suspicious about her older sister declining to enter the prestigious college she worked so hard to get into. About Yumi getting hired by a foreign company she never heard of to travel around the world on 'business'. It nearly confirmed her suspicions when her older sister objected when she started collecting occult magazines and paraphernalia. And still, try as she might looking into her family history there was nothing of note save a number of odd legends which could or could not be traced back to her family. Imponderable, just like her older sister's refined, steely gaze.
Yuri Nakatomi appears to be an ordinary school girl. She is a bit of an underachiever, often caught daydreaming, sometimes in the most inconvenient times. Nevertheless she is not without passion. Whenever the occult is brought into the conversation she suffers a visible transformation: Her vibrant green eyes gleam, her waist length indigo hair flows freely as she raves on and on about her favorite subject.This doesn't happen often, as those interested in the Occult from her previous schools are few and that she has little patience for 'amateurs'. Amateurs, those who research the occult as a curiosity, rather than a tangible reality. Everything else, like her looks, and personal relationships are eclipsed by her one driving passion.
When she introduced herself at the beginning of this school year, she said something like: "My name is Nakatomi Yuri, 17 years old. I like the occult. I read about it every day. I want to be an occult investigator when I grow up. I believe in my heart that it's all real, even if proof is near impossible to find. I plan on running for president of the schools paranormal activity investigation group, I hope we have a better turnout this year. Thank you, that is all."
Keita Arima, angelic love-struck underclassman by Hemmon
Kobayashi Amaya, gentle timeless yokai by Regalus
Her name is Kobayashi Amaya appears as a normal 16 years old girl; if a bit exuberant at times. She seems like a gentle, fun loving soul and a bit quirky; like her tendency of using old fashioned terms and words, or her love for antiques, museums and old fashioned things. She loves being near where the action is, and loves being around people; always seeming to be exactly where she needs to be or just up an vanishing while no one is looking. Amaya's a bit accident prone, but things always seemed to mysteriously her way; and every once in a while has been known to play pranks on others when stressed. Her silver eyes the only obvious hint most people get to her true nature.
In truth Amaya is actually a centuries old Raven yokai who feeds off the life force of the living. Her great magical powers has allowed her to gather many followers over the years. Though once a she-devil that threatened the land she was eventually reigned in through the actions of a young monk, and has since been in the service of the Monks family. During her many years in their service she managed to refine her magic through her arts, and their training has served to curve some of her more...dangerous tendencies. Though after a particularly dangerous battle against a band of Oni which threatened to open a gate into the demon world, she was forced to go into a deep sleep to heal.
Nearly a millenia later, she was awakened before her sleep could be completed by one of the monks descendant who was being attack by a rogue Oni. After the rest of the family found out about her, and her still diminished power, she was taken in and eventually sent to school to learn about what she's missed over the centuries and a climate to the world once more. As a Lady of the Night she's not too fond of being out and about during the day, especially given the effects it has on her powers, but is willing to tolerate it for the time being.
She is currently living under the guise of one of the teacher's niece from the country, and is staying at the family home; the renovated temple in which layed the shrine where she had been resting. Currently Mr. Kobayashi works as the schools English teacher, and is keeping an eye on Amaya. She might seem sweet now, but his family was told the legends; and while they might not be as skilled at demon hunting as they used to be, the family knows enough to handle Amaya in her weakened state should it be needed.
She has joined the Occult club as its one of her few interests which is still relevant in the modern day world; and it fills her with a sense of comfort in this strange world she lives in.

SpoilerNamed after what the alien armada perceived as the dominant affiliation of the earthlings, perceiving their grand, golden arches as a fairly religious symbol, the MacDonald unit was dispatched as an ambassador unit to planet Earth some 10-odd years ago, in varying time and places for individual members. One particular alien ambassador sent out was a young 'girl' (sexual and aging traits of aliens not specifically known at this time) alien ended up crashing her pod slap dab in the middle of Tokyo. She sustained too many damages to return and had to make to wandering around until an ally noticed her absence and investigated, which could take weeks. As such, she ended up banging heads, as she wandered the city and was dazzled by the bright lights, with our club leader, one Yuri, and introduced herself on the spot as Knox. A little thing you shoudl know about the aliens and the MacDonald unit; they blended in fairly well with society by adapting their bodies to human biology - to this end abducting people and cloning much of their traits. Unfortunately, Knox was pumped full of the blood fo a vampire in one of the weirder twists of fate when the med ship she was spawned in flew over Romania. Because of all that, she was left with vampiric traits, including a vulnerability to sunlight - not enough to kill her by any means, but certainly to cause nausea. As such, no sooner had the words 'my name is Knox' has left her mouth than the glare of sunlight caused her to collapse into the other girl's arms.
After being given a place to stay, Knox found herself becoming awfully fond of young Yuri and her quirks, the two becoming a sort of pair of friends rather quickly - Yuri finding her often awkward intonation yet almost dutiful dedication to peace and conversation to be a sort of curiousity, and Knox feeling oddly completed by the other's overriding pep and *amazing* knowledge of the workings of electric payphones and pens. It was something to be admired, and she felt she would have a good report to return to the fleet with. However, when her allies found her, she at first reluctant to leave due to the suddenness. Allowed one last favour, she pecked Yuri on the cheeck before blushing and running halfway to the mothership. Of course, that's when the memory ray kicked in and wiped memory of Knox from everyone's minds. Quite distressing reallly, their freidnship having grown to something of an Unrequited Love already in Knox's eyes, but perhaps it is not to be was all she thought as she returned to the fleet. Her report got her demoted, being mostly just several finger paintings and an occassional subtitle explaining why wiping the memories of people they are trying to make peace with seems counter-productive and how Yuri is her bestest friend ever.
Unfortunately, the bad Romanian blood ended up being used on several other Macdonald units, many of whom were not so nice as Knox, leading to the entire ship being overun by intergalactic vampires inexplicably hellbent on dominating the earth and eating the inhabitants. Of course, most of this is unbeknownst to Knox who, after growing up in many ways has been on earth for sometime, travelling from place to place as field work and blending in fairly well using a mixture of minor shapeshifting and extremely padded clothes that protect her pale as the driven snow skin from the sun. After being just aboit everywhere in the last decade, she has finally returned to Japan, having just learned how to read a map and where one called Yuri would be likely to live. She tricked a few officials into thinking she was always enrolled in the school, slipping into the student body, just waiting to introduce herself once more to her first love.
note: due to her constant wandering, her failure to find intimacy and wearing of constrictive clothing are linked in her mind, leading to sexual-tinged excitement the less she wears.
THERE - I explained all my weird-ass traits, read'em and weep.
Mira Rone, gynoid infiltrator-assasin by Syless
Alright, finally got around to rolling up the new character. And I got Yuki, basically- though I haven't actually watched/read any Haruhi, so I won't be copying anything, this is just an amusing coincidence.
Name: Mira Rone
Uniform Color: green
Hair Color: yellow
Eye Color: red
Maid Types: Boyish & Cool
Special Qualities: Yin-Yang, Glasses, Android/Gynoid
Favored Attribute: Athletics
Maid Power: Super Evasion
Maid Roots: Infiltrator
Maid Weapon: Ray Gun
Stress Explosion: Sleep
SpoilerYour name is Mira. You are 16 years old. You have red eyes and yellow hair, and wear a green maid uniform. You are boyish and cool; others describe you as energetic, a tomboy and expressionless.
Your maid outfit prominently features a yin-yang symbol. You wear glasses; you can't use contact lenses, but at least they compliment your maid uniform. You are not human, but rather a human-looking robot, with a number of overtly artificial features.
You are a member of an organization that opposes the master, and you have been sent to spy on or even possibly assassinate him. In combat, you pack a working ray gun that looks like a prop out of a 50s sci-fi B movie. When you are extremely upset, you spend all day sleeping. Due to your notable Athletics, you have the ability Super Evasion. In exchange for 1d6 Stress, you can completely avoid a single attack.
SpoilerMira was created by... well, a skeptic isn't the right word to use. Rather than not believing in the supernatural, he just would rather make sure it stays hidden. Mira's purpose was to try and keep the supernatural concealed, and to that end she was dispatched to a high school that had a penchant for strange happenings and infiltrated it as a student.
If anyone were to look closely enough, they would notice that Mira's pupils, rather than being purely black, are instead small yin-yang symbols. To try and keep people from noticing she wears thick-framed glasses to conceal her eyes. This isn't helped by the fact that her pupils are surrounded by a ring of red that seems to glow in the dark.

Special Qualities: Tiger/Lion, Android, Political Organization
Favored Attribute: Skill
Maid Power: 4-D Uniform

Stress Explosion: Violence
Your name is Daniel Connors Smith. You are 16 years old. You have red eyes and metallic hair, and wear a navy maid uniform. You are cool and heroic; others describe you as maidenly, vigorous and energetic.
You are actually a large predatory cat, and can display or hide the ears, tail, claws and teeth at will. You are not human, but rather a human-looking robot, with a number of overtly artificial features.
You are a member of an organization that opposes the master, and you have been sent to spy on or even possibly assassinate him.

Due to your notable Skill, you have the ability 4-D Dress. You can produce anything in the mansion from within your maid uniform.
Daniel Connors Smith was a normal house cat belonging to one Professor James Connors Smith. Professor Connors was an expert on ooparts under the employ of International Bureau of Paranormal Affairs (IBPA). While analyzing a device from the Amadam culture, its crystal core activated and latched on to Danny. In a panic, he fled wildly as IBPA agents chased the cat in order to remove the device. He ended up in the Vault, where other ooparts resonated with the amadam core. Tendrils of energy launched from the core, connecting with the ooparts and pulling them in. Each one smashed into each other until the only thing left in the Vault was a large metallic blue ball. Immediately the IBPA studied and scanned the ball, trying to piece together what had happened to Danny and the Vault. After a several days, they still had no real understanding of what had happened. Then the orb cracked open to reveal a panther-like beast made out of a composite material.
Initially the beast was treated as a hostile as it leaped forward in search of something. It became evident what had been the fate of the contents of the vault as the beast used many of their effect in its hunt. Eventually it was discovered that the beast was Danny as it displayed many of the habits the cat had possessed, the most damning being its near possessive attachment to professor Connors. With Connors's assistance, Danny was put through a intensive battery of tests, which would reveal that recovering the ooparts or restoring Danny to normal was impossible. The way the Amadam core altered both cat and ooparts rendered them indistinguishable. Additionally, the core was still active, making changes, adapting and evolving the new entity.
After awhile the first of the changes became apparent as Danny developed the ability to speak and above average human intelligence. Then came the discovery of his ability to coax his body into human and small feline forms. As time went on, Danny became more and more bored until he applied for agent status. After much negotiating and Danny's participation in defense of the IBPA HQ, Agent status was granted.
After 8 years of active duty, Daniel has been considered a valued asset to the IBPA. However due to the amount of stress accrued in recent missions, He asked to be transfer to a new assignment and team. The reason given for this request was the bad combat compatibility between him and Agents Stewart and Flint, citing that in several occasions he has received more damage from friendly fire than from hostile forces. After some consideration, Daniel was asigned with the duty of investigating the large paranormal activity in a school and report his findings, though he will be allowed to act based on his own discretion.
Leah Valderri, aka Akira Takeda, a girl marked by her arcane gift by Nagato 434
Name of character: Leah Valderri (however, goes by the name "Akira Takeda" while in Japan)
Age: 16 (looks twelve, with basic, ill-defined sex characteristics)
-Height: 4'9" (the same height she was when she was twelve)
-Other notes: Leah is blind has burn scars that cover most of her body and about a quarter of her face.
History: Leah was born in a very Catholic family residing in Venice, Italy. She spent twelve years trying to be a normal girl, despite knowing she was 'different' from the people she was raised with; then her (consciously-suppressed) magical ability manifested itself in a catastrophic explosion, leaving her blind and covered in horrific burn scars.
After that accident, she discovered that the abilities she suppressed throughout her childhood had grown far stronger, and uncontrollable, than she wanted them to. Eventually, she found a mentor (by the name of Cedric) who trained her in the ways of witchcraft so that she could control the powers she didn't want to have in the first place.
The incident caused her body to stop growing. Secondary sex characteristics (like breasts and ovaries) developed, but were also limited by her diminutive size; this causes her to look, at best, like a more-developed version of the twelve-year-old girl she was when the accident changed her life. She spent three years going in and out of hospitals, first getting treatment for her burns (and plastic surgeries to lessen the impact of them), then to numerous endocrinologists (who could find nothing hormonally wrong with her). After that, she spent six months in a boarding school specifically intended for disabled kids, which allowed her to develop her skills.
Her witchcraft was first discovered by her brother while she was home for Christmas, who told his parents. They immediately pulled her out of school and kept her secluded in their house, apparently thinking to 'save' her by eliminating her (admittedly tenuous) contact with the outside world. This was when she realized that Cedric was actually the god Cernunnos, who had chosen to guard her knowing that she was destined to become a powerful mage. He reveals that he is not actually a God during this conversation, though also does not deign to reveal the nature of his ability to her at the time.
Cernunnos eventually sees that the seclusion she is undergoing has no foreseeable end so long as she remains a witch; so he tells her to go to Japan and enter the school the RP is set at (a/n: it's 5 AM here, so I'll figure out the school's name later). He somehow manages to get her to Japan with her body and sanity intact, and then helps her find a job at a restaurant that has an apartment above it (after she spends all her savings on a hotel during the interim). She has little to no contact with Cernunnos after this, who feels that extended contact with him will only serve to further isolate her from her peers.
Leah adopts the name Akira Takeda (which is coincidentally the name on the fake passport Cernunnos manages to procure for her) and enrolls in the school. Afterwards, she joins the Occult Club, feeling that Cernunnos probably picked the school so she could find someone to relate to.
