Physical Complex: Sickly - Suffers from asthma and is getting very tired of other peoples concern about it.
Mental Complex: Slow Eater - Keita is a slow eater, so everyone else always finish their own lunches long before him.

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 onmyujin, and has since been in the service of the Priests 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 yokai 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 has finally reawakened. 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.

Named 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.
Got my PC back - posting should return to normal now, once I add some 'minor' finishing touches.

Hair Color: metallic
Eye Color: red

Special Qualities: Tiger/Lion, Android, Political Organization
Favored Attribute: Skill
Maid Power: 4-D Uniform
Maid Roots: Infiltrator
Maid Weapon: Internal Weapons
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. In combat, you have some kind of weapons installed in your body which you use to attack. When you are extremely upset, you unleash violence on the other maids and the master. 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.
Re: High School RPG: A Maid RPG Variant. OOC Thread
Har de har har. If you want a random event or something, you can just ask. It just seems that you guys are role-playing so well, it just seems to be a shame to interrupt. But I'll get you a random event.
No guys, I totally know the rules (flip) I just need a reminder...(Flip,flip,flip)
Re: High School RPG: A Maid RPG Variant. OOC Thread
Ouch, that one burned.
Hey all, seeing as we seem to be making this up as we go along I thought it best to come to a consensus in terms of backstory.
Remi, Mira Amaya, Yuri, Daniel and Keita have all been members before the start of the RP.
We know Keita arrived this School Year, possibly joining as late as this semester; but what of the others.
I wrote down that Amaya was brought in by Yuri while shortly after enrolling in her first year. So, would we have been the first two member's of this Club; making me the vice-president and one of her close friends, maybe?
What of Daniel, Mira and Remi? How long have both of you been in the club for? Given our ages, and Keita's on Age I'm guessing this is or second year of high school, tenth grade or so if I'm not mistaken given the Japanese school system; while Keita is still in his first year.
So, what are your thoughts on this? Anything you guys want to have happened in the past?
Also, we'd decided that none of us were aware of the others supernatural nature correct?
Re: High School RPG: A Maid RPG Variant. OOC Thread
Well in my last post in the IC, i mentioned Danny had his reading by Rumi about a year ago. Essentially he would have been there for about a year as the minimum. He could have been there longer, not quite sure by how much more though. He has history with Amaya, hinted at by the Magpie-chan nickname. Since he's meant to be an observer for the IBPA, he would probably keep his magitech nature concealed unless he was forced to reveal himself.
Re: High School RPG: A Maid RPG Variant. OOC Thread
Remi is completely aware of everyone's supernatural nature, as she finds out when she does her readings on people. It's also why we don't have any members who are 'fakes', since she can sniff them out with that same method.
Remi joined at the same time Yuri did. She doesn't care at all what her rank is, though, whatever Yuri prefers is fine with her. She's just here to be with Yuri.
Oh, and we need a dice roll thread. Made one here.
Anyways, moving my sheet here.
EDIT: At the same time, since Remi does her readings on everyone, anyone who can sense magic should know that she can, at the least, do magic. Everyone else might just suspect that she can read minds or do divinations.
Name: Remi Sugiura
Age: 16? 17? (Whatever age the president is)
Eyes: Blue (they turn purple whenever she's using magic or is in non-human form)
Maid Types: Sexy / Boyish

Roots: Childhood Friend (Glad this one is still an option for the school game, heh)
Stress Explosion!: Prayer
Maid Power: Windows of the Soul
Maid Weapon: Halberd/Polearm (Naginata)
Hundreds of years ago, the ancient legends and myths of current day humanity were truth. Angels fought devils at the command of their god, monsters roamed the earth, and magic was as commonplace as the mundane. The wars would ebb and flow like the tides; at times there was peace for many long years, but at others the wars of the supernatural beings would devastate human civilization, sometimes setting progress back centuries.
The greatest, and last, of these wars was between the self-styled forces of 'good', the angels and their god, and the creatures of 'evil', the demons, devils, and monsters of the night. This war lasted decades, with hundreds of thousands of dead on each side, until finally the two sides attempted a final gambit against one another to end things once and for all. The clash of their great spells crippled the force of magic in the world, a scar that would take hundreds of years to recover, and left both forces unable to fight, their leaders slain. Forced to finally make peace, the two sides swore to never bring about such a calamity again, and as part of these terms, both sides agreed to withdraw from the world and to allow humanity to progress on their own. And to help solidify this agreement and to give it weight, the eldest son of the angel's god wed the eldest daughter of the demon's emperor.
And so, time passed as it always does, and humans soon forgot that such a war even happened, and the creatures that caused it soon became the stuff of stories. But the two factions kept their agreement, and eventually, a child of joined blood was born to the two rulers. With the blood of both angel and succubus in her veins, Remi's birth was a symbol that peace would forever remain between the angels and demons of the world.
Remi's childhood was not a simple one. Many angels were secretly surprised that her wings turned out to be of the purest white like theirs, despite her 'tainted' blood. Despite the long peace, the prejudices had certainly remained. Seeking an escape, the princess would often peer down into the world of humanity from the heavens above, simply watching. And it was during these long periods of watching that she became entranced with a certain girl.
And so, on impulse, the teenage Remi left home, descending to Earth disguised as a simple human. She managed to slip into the girl's life, joining her school and gaining her friendship. And it was a happy two years, happier than anything Remi had experienced up above. But it was not to last, of course.
Remi's fascination with the girl turned to love, to little surprise to those demons watching through mystical means. The princess was a succubus, of course, so such a thing was simply to be expected, and it made her seem like one of them as well as one of the angels. But such a thing was not acceptable to the angels. To them, their princess was something to be honored and respected, and for a mere human to be the source of her affections could not be allowed. And so Remi's father intervened, descending to the Earth to bring Remi back home. Like any rebellious teenager, Remi refused.
God is not used to being refused, especially by the daughter who had once been so obedient to his wishes. He had known of her descent to Earth, of course, and had said nothing, as it had not worried him. But this girl had corrupted his daughter. And since Remi would not listen, he would simply remove the girl. With a mighty spell, the girl was smote by Remi's father, and the princess was beside herself in tears. It was not something that He would understand, as the girl was just a human, but she was far more than that to Remi.
The princess would return home after that, and years passed without any further incident. But Remi wouldn't let things end just like that. She learned a few choice spells from her mother, and with her aid, she tracked her love's soul. And when the girl was reincarnated once more, Remi disappeared from the heavens once and for all. Her mother used her magic to allow Remi to be 'born' once again, this time to a human couple. Remi, of course, was still herself, and not a human girl, but she would appear as such to anyone who didn't know better. It was the ideal situation for her, as she could grow up with the one she loved, and be at her side, without anyone up above interfering again. Her mother's only condition was for Remi to return once she finished living out her 'human' lifetime, which Remi agreed to.
And so the princess spent the next decade and a half like any other human girl. She went to school and grew up, and spent much of her time with her best friend. And with her best friend as a president of a club in high school, and with the two of them reaching an age where love wasn't just a game, well... maybe it was time for her to finally make her move.
The easiest thing to say about Remi is that she certainly stands out in a crowd. While fairly average in height for an American girl, she's fairly tall for a girl in Japan, and thanks to her succubus blood, her proportions are rather un-Japanese as well. Long black hair falls to just past the middle of her back, and can often be found in various kinds of braids. Her bright blue eyes certainly aren't normal in a Japanese school either, but then, they aren't normally blue. Whenever Remi uses her magic or reverts to her angelic form, they change back to their normal purple color. Finally, around her neck, Remi wears a silver cross, which she proudly keeps worn outside of her uniform. She is quite faithful, unsurprisingly, and an old inscription on the back of the cross is quite worn, barely legible from the frequent handling of the small trinket.
Otaku - The Paranormal
Sibling Inferiority Complex - Yumi Nakatomi
The 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, Yuri 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."
Being elected as the club president came as a surprise to Yuri. Still, she quickly adjusted to her new role. She came out from her shell and openly started talking about the occult, suggesting research topics or possible sightings of the paranormal to keep the club occupied. She is an energetic leader, if a little scatterbrained. She is used to her senses giving her false signals of paranormal beings close to her that she ignores them.
Yumi Nakatomi, Yuri's meddling sister and her reaction to the club
Yuri's family consists of just her and her older sister Yumi. Her parents died when she was only 2 or 3 years old and she doesn't remember them. Tasked with running a household, and taking care of her sister, Yumi became an adult overnight. Once Yuri became self sufficient, Yumi took her place in 'the family business'. In order to protect Yuri, she has been keeping tabs on her through divination, interfering when necessary. When she discovered the nature of Yuri's club members, realizing the danger of Yuri's hunter powers awakening, she immediately tried to convince her to do something else. She was considering using mind altering magic on Yuri when she realized that was a line she wouldn't cross. The club made her sister immensely happy, to the point of helping her overcome her shyness and that was good enough. She would just have to double her efforts to watch over her little sister.
On each club member:
In Knox's case, her pod crashed in Tokyo when Yuri was about six years old and she found her. Even at that time, Yuri's family consisted only of her older sister and her. Yuri unilaterally decided to take her in, and Yumi agreed, even if she did sense something odd about her. Before Yumi-oneesan was able to figure things out, Knox's people came in and wiped the memory of the few days she spent in the Nakatomi household. Yuri doesn't remember any of this, although there is the possibility she may remember later on. Her first impression belies some trace of that memory, as she calls her Knox-kun, the way one may call a friend.
Remi is Yuri's childhood friend, but she also knew her from a past life countless years ago. In that past life, Remi visited Earth in the guise of a teenage girl and met Yuri, becoming part of her life. They went to school together, and became close friends, perhaps more. It was unacceptable for the higher divine hierarchy Remi came from for their princess to give her affections to a mortal. And since Remi would not simply return to the heavens, they decided to have this sacrilegious mortal girl killed. At that time, Yuri's soul was in a member of a branch family of the Nakatomi clan, free of any responsibilities to the family's monster hunting tradition. However her death did not go unnoticed, and the retaliation to come may have in turn caused the current move towards peaceful coexistence. Still, Remi would not surrender herself to the judgement of her elders. Using magical means, she divined the girl in which Yuri's soul had been reborn with and this time with the aid of her mother she was born into a mortal family, and grew up with Yuri. This new Yuri is a lot more shy and withdrawn due to being without parents and her sister coddling her. Remi is the person Yuri admires the most, after her older sister. Her assertiveness, her height and her beauty are all qualities Yuri admires in Remi. That's why she calls her Remi-san, to show her respect.
She reminds Yuri of her older sister, always composed and collected. Amaya would surely be aware of who the Nakatomi are, and who Yuri could become if she became a hunter, but she may have her own reasons to stay. Perhaps she is powerful and old enough she doesn't really consider her a threat, more of a curiosity. Yuri sees her as a gentle princess, and treats her with due respect. That's why she calls her Kobayashi-san.
Yuri sees Keita as a little brother, although in jest she may have called him 'the club mascot'. She appreciates his attentiveness, but doesn't take advantage of it, unless it's for club business. She calls him Kei-chan, which upon reflection may sound a little like a girl's name, but she does find him adorable.
Daniel Connors Smith
The IBPA would be well aware of the monster hunters and their role in the peace brokering process going on. However, the Nakatomi family has been through generations locking horns with any other foreign organizations intruding upon 'their homeland'. Perhaps even Daniel himself fought against one of Yuri's relatives before. Finding out that a Yuri Nakatomi, potential hunter, was at the center of this paranormal activity hotspot was no big surprise. Further investigation may be required. With Daniel, Yuri was initially guarded. Not only a transfer student, but such an overt personality makes her move into moods new to her. She talks to him brashly, and taunts him and pokes fun at him. That's why she gave him the nickname 'Silver', to make fun of an otherwise imposing club mate.
Leah / Akira
Of Leah, Akira Takeda, there is still much to figure out. The designs of Cernunnos are mysterious. I imagine if Yuri finds out about Akira's blindness she'll naturally feel protective towards her, wanting to coddle her just as her sister coddled her but I imagine she doesn't tell others about her blindness it's for a reason. Perhaps she wants to be self sufficient, despite being blind. If so Yuri, will respect, even admire that.
