In long times past, humans and Yokai have fought and waged wars that would later fade into the legends of "Monsters" We now today. In the present day, Yokai dwell in our society. We were unaware until now. The year was 20xx at the Summer Olympics held in the USA. The whole world was watching when an announcement was broadcasted at the event and and anyone tuning in.

A young man appeared, claiming to be an ancient Apostle of Yokai known as Bennet Grey. He claimed that Yokai had always lived under the noses of humans, but he wishes to live peacefully among them, and the first step to this peace is to reveal themselves to mankind. He then explained his intensions to build a settlement on a man made island off of the Maryland, and this Island would be a sanctuary to all Yokai-kind, and anyone who wished to live peacefully among them. This Island was to be called "Nocturne"

The world has was blown into absolute chaos as yokai all over started to reveal their true natures. Old friends, neighbors, and co workers turned out to be Yokai to the now very confused Human Race.

A year has passed since that announcement, and while tension is very think between the two races, a project has been proposed.

An Academy would be opened on Nocturne that would accept both Humans and Yokai. This Academy would offer both high school and college education. While humans were still weary, Bennet Grey had issued a ruling. Any human who attended Nocturne Academy would receive a full scholarship, their guaranteed protection and safety, and lastly... They would be given what ever reward they could desire upon graduation from Nocturne Academy at either the High School or College Level.

The stage has been set, and players will soon assemble. What will your role in this project be?

Name: Drew Alexandrite
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Orientation: Straight
Appearance: Drew is slender, standing at 5,10 and weighing about 170 lbs. He doesn't have much muscle tone, but he's not exactly pudgy either. He has pale olive toned skin, jet black messy hair with long bangs that are almost chin length, and bright blue eyes that are almost like two sapphires in shade. He typically wears casusal clothing like graphic t's and jeans.

Personality: Drew's kind hearted and nice individual, and he's a polite boy. He can be really affable, and tries to be a voice of reason. He cares a lot about his family and loved ones, and is actually optimistic that the Yokai and the human race can live together peacefully. Because of his past, Drew is prone to fits of PTSD. This includes recurring nightmares and anxiety when reminded of his childhood trauma. He also has some low self confidence contrary to his upbeat personality, and suffers from low self worth. Because of his trauma though, he doesn't have much direction in his life, and is trying his best just to get by until he can find something to give his life meaning.

History: Drew's first memory was at the age of 5. The bodies of what he'd later conclude were his parents were lying in pools of their own blood, and a ravenous Vampire was about to eat him. Right as he was about to be eaten, another Vampire came to his rescue. A vampire that looked like a teenage girl named Millia Tepes. She managed to help him flee from the home, and entrusted her to an old colleague that currently runs a laboratory studying Yokai on Nocturne, Prof. Elizabeth Frankenstein. Raised by her, he was full knowledge of the existence of Yokai since he was a child. He has a bit of a hero idealism for Millia, who came to visit him during his birthday, and he's actually both nervous and excited that Millia will be attending Nocturne Academy.

Abilities/Talents: Drew's decent at drawing, keeps a journal, and has a decent gift for studying and analyzing information. Despite this however, his grades are not the best.

Wish: He doesn't have one yet.

Other: N/A

Name: Amynta "Myn" Naavah
Age: 20
Gender: Female
Species: Dragon
Orientation: Something flexible af.

Appearance
Amynta is rather tall, standing around 6'1" in height. Her body is heavily trained, boasting impressive toning and a few scars from her family's unforgiving regimens. One of these scars can be seen going horizontally across her face, which is a customary trait of women whom have been deemed worthy enough to pass on their father's name. She has taken after her largely in appearance, with hazel eyes, dark skin, and maw of fangs. She gained from her father his ashen white hair, which travels down to her shoulders. Amynta frequently dresses with accessories from her family's culture.

Personality
As expected of woman in her family, she is quite combative and quick to settle things with a fight. She is a jovial person, if not very threatening due to her imposing physique and brash nature, and is quick to help those who need it. Much like the people in the Naavah family, she is very conscious of how her family's reputation is reflected on her. In conjunction with this, she finds herself bogged down with the expectation of succeeding her family name.

History
Shall be revealed through RP.

Powers
Amynta's abilities allow her to utilize her natural draconic skills. With heightened strength, agility and endurance, she is able to fight well in hand-to-hand combat situations. Her trademark is her species' ability to partially and wholly transform themselves - they can call upon their various draconic body parts to perform a task they require. This, however, is extensively taxing on her as a whole; the cells she uses to manipulate her form are destroyed and recreated constantly. She does not possess the healing factor of her people as of yet, so she is unable to simply reproduce them at will.

Abilities
She is a very potent hand-to-hand combatant, as her species is very combat-centric. However, after coming to Nocturne, she picked up some skills in engineering based work.

Other: Legs for days.

Name: Akira Kuroi
Gender: Female
Age: 17
Species: Weapon-based Shapeshifter
Orientation: Homosexual

Appearance: Akira has deathly pale skin, almost a pale gray in tone. She's rather average in terms of her height, though is noticeably very thin. Her hair, a deep ebony black, is pulled back into two uneven pigtails (with one being longer than the other). Her eyes, which are a deep cerulean blue, distinctly lack a pupil. As for clothing, she wears a dark gray sleeveless shirt, along with black jeans overlapped by tall black and white boots. She also wears an unzipped black jacket with a white star on the back - it seems to have an extension, making it look more like a hooded cape. She also wears a pair of gloves.

Personality: Akira seems about as emotionless as one can get. She rarely speaks, and when she does it's with a cold, harsh tone. Because of this attitude, she rarely makes friends with anyone. Often identified as a classic introvert, she usually tries to avoid social interactions by busying herself with a novel or music of her own. Ironically enough, she has an absolute fear of silence.

History: Good luck trying to make her talk.

Powers: As the name implies, she can change any part of her body to become some form of weapon - she can even summon weapons to be used. The most common weapons she uses include energy cannons, rocket launchers, gunblades, assault rifles, and more. What's more, she has a very high regeneration factor. Weapons she summons do not have unlimited ammunition however (versus those she changes her own limbs into), and she can still be killed by decapitation and volatile explosive substances. Depending on the weight of the weapon she transforms her limbs into, her movement can be slowed or even stopped (for instance, if she summons a massive energy cannon, the sheer weight of it would render mobility useless). Despite her regeneration factor, Akira is incapable of immediately regrowing limbs on the spot - that usually takes days to weeks of time.

Abilities: Akira is extremely athletic, and thus her physical capabilities are amazing. Her senses are heightened (though none more than her vision), and superhuman feats of strength and finesse come easy to her. Due to the nature of her ability, she is proficient with nearly any weapon. She is also no stranger to unarmed combat in sketchy alleyways with older men.

Other: Theme is Let Me Hear (dj-Jo Remix) feat. IA ROCKS

Name: Kuuhaku "Kuu" Suzume
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Species: Kitsune
Orientation: Bisexual

Appearance:
Kuu in her human form maintains a youthful, carefree look with fair skin and iridescent turquoise irises. Her hair, which is slate-hued, is pulled back into a loose braid that reaches the middle of her back. She would look like a normal human, with the exception of a few traits; her eyes have slit-like pupils, her teeth are noticeably sharp; and she has a second pair of vulpine ears sitting atop her head. For clothing, she wears a traditional Japanese clothing, sometimes a kimono that is usually scarlet in color.

Personality:
Kuu is not necessarily bubbly in nature, but also not pessimistic and dreary when it comes to her personality. She's a bit of a loose cannon in the way that she's a bit unpredictable. It doesn't change the fact that she's rather eccentric though, and more than often does things on a whim. She's more of an enigma than anything, and can be secretive when she wants to be. She has a bad habit of speaking in riddles on occasion.

History:
Another story for another day.

Powers:
Kuu has an affinity with fire by nature, and can summon flames at will. In her kitsune form, she appears as a large slate-colored fox with five tails, each tipped with spiritual fire. Though the tails each possess a great deal of magic, they are cursed, and when touched will curse the offending party. Said curse depends on which tail is touched and can be a variety of things; from memory loss to severe physical and spiritual burns, to even death.

Also, she hates water.

Abilities:
She's extremely flexible, and has a great deal of stamina. She's good at making medicine and cooking. Doesn't hurt that she's easy on the eyes.

Second sign up, if not okay please tell kthnx.

Name: Lucian Astrus
Gender: Male, for now.
Age: 19
Species: Fallen Angel
Orientation: Heterosexual

Appearance
Lucian possesses a smaller frame, being around 5'7" in height. His eyes are probably his most unusual - at least in human terms - trait, being almost entirely coal-colored with white dots in the middle. His hair is blonde, neatly layered, and his skin is milky white.

Personality
A fallen angel is a perversion of some of the most pure and sacred things in the universe. They are the epitomy of evil and chaos - the shadows cast over the land.

That... is not Lucian. Oh, goodness no. The boy is an incredibly kind and compassionate soul, unwilling to harm anything or anyone (without due process). He rarely speaks out, often only chiming in with others when they speak. He prefers to be on the sidelines, reading books and making friends.

History
To be revealed. Well, if you care to hear. Er. You know. Hehe. Sorry.

Powers

Lucian's powers lie over the abilities of the "negative" energies. For reasons he never truly divulges to others, he grew to learn how to control the element of darkness as his primary weapon. Ice is also something he's learned how to harness, with fire being something he's working on (sparsely - he's not very dedicated to his schedule).

Beyond those, he possess the ability of flight from his wings that he can manifest. While flying is absolutely no problem (usually), his primary powers are, while strong, quite taxing on him when exerting them.

Abilities

Lucian is a scientist at heart - he wants to study all things related to physics. You can find him neck deep in a physics book, or reading something equally as nerdy.

Other:
He is not the Prince of Insufficient Light.

Name: Touko Yakumo
Gender: Female
Age: 20
Species: Yamata no Orochi
Orientation: Bisexual

Appearance: Touko stands at a alarming 8'8" feet tall and looks fairly muscular as well with pale skin, loose blonde hair braided into eight strands that are tipped with hair jewelry in the form of 8" long bronze snake heads, with each head having authentic gemstone-encrusted eyes (rubies, sapphires, emeralds, topazes, tourmaline, opals, diamonds, and black moonstones), has a heart-shaped face, violet-hued eyes that are able to become slitted like a snake's eyes whenever enraged or using her powers. She had a medium build to her body, and has a 38DD bust, which look somewhat above average on Touko's massive body.

On her back is a massive tattoo, where eight serpents hiss with fangs bare at the world, with four on the left and right side of her back, with their tails spiraled up. Near the bottom of the tattoo, on the back of her waist, which leads to a rather large posterior, is the infinity symbol.

Personality: Hard as nails, Touko is a woman of few words and action. Cold, proud and aloof, she is not one to to be crossed with, as she can be really vicious in a fight. She also doesn't suffer fools gladly, and hates having her time wasted. That being said, she does have a code of honor and ideals, and refuses to stray from them. She also softens up around certain people after awhile.

History: Touko was born into the Yakumo clan, the Head Clan of the United Body Clans of the Yamata no Orochi, who was said to have spawn from the first severed head that the demigod warrior Yamato Takeru had chopped off from the Yamata no Orochi after getting him so drunk he passed out, having using holy sake made from the blessed rice fields of the sun goddess Amaterasu to do so.

The severed heads of the Yamata no Orochi, as well as the tails, transformed into 16 smaller Yamata no Orochi in the dead of night, who eventually created families of their own when they evaded armed forces and assumed human form. While the Yamata no Orochi met his grisly end in Japan, it actually was born elsewhere, in the most western reaches of China, and drawn to Japan for reasons lost to time, though the trail of destruction the monster left has left an ugly, though notably healing, scar spanning from the westward reaches of modern-day China to the shores of what would be North Korea.

As heiress of the Yakumo clan and thus, the one to lead the family should her parents die, Touko was given extensive training in the Power of the Eight Branches to make sure she is a strong heir to claim the title as clan chieftain, something her mother currently held.

However, at age 8, the Yakumo clan was fractured by one of its own, wanting the power of the chieftain, and with it, the rest of the Orochi clans. While the attempted usurper was stopped and killed, it came at a heavy price: Touko's immediate family were killed. Distraught, the young Orochi ran from home. During her run in the rain, she came across a black mass very interested in Touko...

Powers: Touko has the Power of the Eight Branches (八岐の力, Yamata no Chikara), an ability that runs through her family's blood since her something-odd great grandfather THE Yamata no Orochi rampaged across the countrysides of China's many Providences, North Korea, and Japan, until he was eventually stopped and killed. Touko can transform any medium of her body into 8 limbs layered with hard-as-diamond venom green scales. However, she can only use one medium at any period of time, and rapidly switching mediums are energy intensive and cause various forms of pain to discourage further scenarios. She can power a medium for 8 minutes when using it for shits and giggles.

Orochi Hair Dance: When using her hair as a medium, her braided hair and hair jewelry transforms into living snake heads with needle-like teeth adorned with kabuto, with the eyes of the snake heads being dependent on the jewels that was used inside the hair jewelry. Touko's special ability with this medium is the ability to use elemental attacks, which can be indicated by the kabuto's crest that the snake heads wear.
  • The ruby-eyed snake head has a kabuto with a red crest shaped like raging fire adorned with the kanji for "fire" (火, Hi) in the center.
  • The sapphire-eyed snake head has a kabuto with a blue crest shaped like a rolling wave adorned with the kanji for "water" (水, Mizu) in the center.
  • The emerald-eyed snake head has a kabuto with a bright green crest shaped like a spiral adorned with the kanji for "wind" (風, Kaze) in the center.
  • The topaz-eyed snake head has a kabuto with a crest shaped like thundercloud with a thunderbolt shooting downward adorned with the kanji for "lightning" (雷, Kaminari) in the cloud.
  • The tourmaline-eyed snake head as a kabuto with a dark green crest shaped like a giant mountain adorned with the kanji for "earth" (土, Tsuchi) in the center.
  • The opal-eyed snake head has a kabuto with a white crest shaped like a snowflake adorned with the kanji for "ice" (氷, Koori) in the center.
  • The diamond-eyed snake head has a kabuto with a yellow crest shaped like the sun adorned with the kanji for "light" (光, Hikari) in the center.
  • The black moonstone-eyed snake head has a kabuto with a dark gray crest shaped like a crescent moon adorned with the kanji for "darkness" (闇, Yami) in the center.

Orochi Death Strike: When using her hands as a medium, they fuse together and launch 8 snake heads with venomous fangs containing neurotoxic venom at the ready to pierce into flesh. Her blood is her venom's antidote. She doesn't like doing this, as it makes her hands ache something fierce afterwards.

Orochi Venom Swarm: When using her head as a medium, it transforms her head into something that resembles the Lernaean hydra's many serpentine heads, only her heads are able to use projectile venom the likes spitting cobras are able to perform. She often gets a headache after use.

Orochi Body Change: When using her lower body as a medium, her legs fused together to form a snake-woman body with eight tails jutting out from the main body.

Orochi Branch Rush: When using her arms as a medium, they retreat into her body then eight long arms covered in scales, with the fists covered in raised scales to help boost damage. These eight arms allow Touko to punch her opponent rapidly with the force and speed of a snake strike. Touko tends to get stiff shoulders after this medium usage.

Orochi Fang Shift: When using her mouth as a medium, her teeth transform to become 8 needle-like teeth that curve backwards , and gains the ability to dislocate her jaw for swallowing stuff whole. Her jaw aches after use.

Orochi Ink Crush: When using her tattoos as a medium, she can generate 8 snake tails to smash foes with.

Orochi Soul Takeover: The final medium; when she uses her entire body, Touko transforms into a giant 8 headed and 8 tailed serpent. Touko reserves this power, as it tires her out quickly, and she often becomes sore as hell when she returns to human form.

Abilities: Touko is a superb chef, has good knowledge on the various species of Youkai except for the more rarer/exotic species, and has some training in snake boxing martial arts.

Other: Touko has a butt to die for.

Name: Nuata Raimurciélago
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Species: Elemental Succubus (Lightning)
Orientation: Pansexual

Appearance: Nuata stands at a height of 5'9" with a heart-shaped face that looked like it was carved from marble, has dark skin with a hue akin to fine mocha, sports bright yellow eyes and has dull red hair. Her body has curves in all the right places, as expected of a member of her race, and, also as expected, has a impressive bust line, which measures to a 40E. Along her plump and poofy lips, Nuata has a beauty mark to the right corner of her mouth

Personality: Nuata has a playful streak to her and can also be quite mischievous to boot. She has a flippant streak as long as a transformed Yamata no Orochi, and is quite likely to mouth off if given reason, and has a short temper. That being said, Nuata is a patient and somewhat parental soul.

When she transforms into her Demon Burst form, however, Nuata becomes more aggressive and blood-thirsty, making her more dangerous to everyone, as she might lose sight of who's enemy and who's friend if she is under Demon Burst for long periods of time.

History: Nuata was born into the Raimurciélago elemental cubi demon clan, one of many elemental cubi demon clans that were born from the first succubus, Lilith. Lilith was a succubus born as an Archangel (with an capital A) who was among the angels that rebelled with the Angel that would later turned into Old Scratch himself. When Lilith fell, she felt her sin born inside of her, the sin of lust, and erupted, and began a mating frenzy, with the atmosphere of Primordial Inferno transforming her from Fallen Angel into the first succubus. Some of the cubi demons borne from Lilith was able to use elemental magic, while others could not.

Nuata is the eldest born in her family, with a younger sister named Navati, and a baby brother named Nivalem. She had an unremarkable childhood, though that changed upon hitting puberty. As typical of all cubi demons, puberty hits a succubus/incubus like a freight train hitting someone at 100 mph, and had most of her power sealed off so her body can adjust to maintaining control over her powers. A succubus with little to no control over her powers are a giant hazard to the lives of everyone, including other cubi demons.

Nuata then underwent training by a family friend, an honorary aunt of sorts by the name of Sophie von Chamberlain, a vampire who trained Nuata's mother, Natasha, who was also taking care of a newly adopted Orochi child by the name of Touko.

Powers: Nuata has the ability to emit pheromones that can be directed with a thought that triggers the instinct to fornicate with the chosen target, but will fail if the target has very little sex drive. She also absorbs sexual energy as a form of alternate nutrition should Nuata be without food or water. Her eyes can light up, but since she can see in low lighting anyway, it mainly serves for intimidation. She can also eat souls for a power boost. Like her species suggest, Nuata has the innate ability to generate and manipulate lightning to the finest degree. When transforming into her succubus form, bat-like wings pop out of her back, spiraling horns poke out of her head and point skywards, her nails lengthen and sharpen, and a tail ending with an heart-shaped arrowhead that's nevertheless still very sharp.

She can also use her Demonic Power to power spells and trigger Demon Burst, a special ability that supercharges her abilities for a short time, but it consumes Demonic Power like a Gluttonous Shade in the Third Circle of Hell, mainly due to her young age and thus has still immature coils, and overuse of Demon Burst can prove fatal. When in Demon Burst Mode, Nuata's skin becomes deathly pale, her skin turns a more brilliant shade of red, her sclera turn read, her horns grow thicker and bigger, her wings grow in size, and she gains spikes along her back and tail.

Abilities: Nuata is great a sewing, plays the electric guitar for fun, and dabbles in karate.

Other: Succubi consider implant enhancements for the sake of having them or to impress one man to be shameful.

Name: Xavier Drake
Age: 19
Gender: Male
Orientation: Focused on anything but that.
Species: Daywalker (half vampire, half human)

Appearance:

His face covered with semi-permanent stubble, his dirty blond hair short and yet a bit messy, and his light blue eyes usually having bags under them, Xavier very much has the appearance of someone who's always on the move. He wears black leather boots, a red vest and a black button-down shirt with the sleeves rolled up. He is also armed with a number of weapons, betraying his life's pursuit. Around both legs he wears bands that store a number of yew wood stakes and on his back he has two one-handed repeating crossbows holstered in shoulder holsters, their bolts also made of yew. In his boots he keeps two large combat knives for emergencies. And last but not least, sheathed on his back is a massive broadsword. Around his neck is a diamond and gold cross that has been blessed with holy water, and he also carries a number of vials of said holy water.

When his senses are flared up (aka he's in the presence of vampires) his normally blue eyes turn red and black, losing most of the whites in his eyes.

Personality:

Xavier's personality is shaped heavily by his departed mother. Like her, he has a huge heart and is exceedingly generous. Even in the current depths of his burning desire for revenge, he keeps a positive demeanor and doesn't shut himself out of the world. While he is nice and kind and courteous, he is also supremely focused on his goals and avoids distractions like the plague. Xavier is also intensely loyal to those he cares about, even if these people are few and far between now. However, his hatred for vampires is also all consuming, a hatred that keeps him driven to refine his practiced methods of killing them. And this has given him quite a bit of hatred and self-loathing towards his supernatural half. He desperately clings to his humanity, even as he knows he isn't truly one of them anymore.

History:

Growing up in a quiet town with a loving family had made Xavier's childhood typical and rather enjoyable. His mother and father were loving and his family got along well. But at the age of eleven, that all changed when one night while Xavier was on a hunting expedition with his father, a group of vampires broke into the family home and murdered his mother. Driven mad by grief, his father tried to chase after them but was also killed as well.

It was his turn next. Alone in the family manor after the loss of his parents, he was also attacked and left for dead. However after the deaths of the child's parents, the local pastor had taken to checking in on the orphan almost daily. It was fortunate that the priest came at the right time. Not only was the pastor able to save Xavier's life, he was also able to stop him from turning. There were side effects though, even as he did not become what he most hated.

Now alone in the world, Xavier had no idea what to do except succeed where his father did not, getting revenge on his mother's killers. It was with this desire that he began to train as a vampire hunter, beginning with using the family money to track down whatever information he could find on the supernatural. Next was years of combat training, learning how to kill the beasts and putting it into practice. His days spent researching and refining his craft, his nights spent hunting, he didn't sleep much, didn't allow him any real pleasures, his joy comings from each kill even as he didn't find the ones that took his life from him. The academy was the last step, a plan to use the contacts present there to help find his parents' killers and get the vengeance he deserved.

Abilities:

The side effects of his near turning were that he got some of the benefits of becoming a vampire. Increased speed, strength and stamina beyond what a normal human could possess. His reaction time and senses are also enhanced. Of particular note is his sense of smell, able to hunt down the supernatural based merely on their scent. He is an incredibly proficient killer, having been trained by the best martial experts in the world to use his blades, stakes and crossbows. While he is an experienced vampire hunter, he's never even considered harming any other type of yokai, meaning he does not know nearly as much about their strengths and weaknesses as he does vampires.

Being a daywalker rather than a full-blooded vampire, he does not share the classic weakness to sunlight. He could feed on human blood if he wished, but it would not nourish or sustain him in any way. Of course given his background, he would never even consider giving into the thirst. His real weakness comes from his remaining human half. If it comes down to it, he will always choose to protect the innocent rather than hunt down his quarry, something that has cost him kills in the past.

Talents: He's an excellent chef, a good card player and even better at cheating at cards.

Other: His favorite color is red and he is also a patron of the arts (a trait picked up from his late mother). He did however spend a large portion of the family's money on his training and his education, so he isn't nearly the charitable giver that she was.

Name: Ken Spade
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Orientation: Whatever you want him to be
Species: Vampire

Appearance: Ken has short spiky hair that he usually combs back so as to allow people to get a good look of his brown eyes, which he takes great pride in, he has white almost pale skin and wears a black long sleeved jacket that he keeps with the sleeves rolled up and ap air of black jeans. He also wears a red shirt underneth the jacket . He also dons a pair of black and white sneakers and carries a lmedallion around his neck.

Personality: Ken is very earnest and straightforward in what he does, to the point that he has issues in thinking what he's going to do before actually doing it. As thus he tends to act rashly at times and has a bit of a temper once people are able to get on his bad side. Aside from that he's very friendly if a little simpleminded, usually having trouble understanding how others might feel depending on certain situations but still trying to understand and support them regardless anyways.

He's not the brightest of people and is very much a jock, preferring physical activity over mental one. Tha tbeing said he is pretty crafty when it comes to the situation and when in danger is able to think on his feet quickly.

History: Ken was born in a family of humans, something that he wasn't very happy with growing up. He always wanted to have powers and dreamed of one day being finding a way to become extraordinary.

One day he and his family were involved in a car accident, or at least as far as he can remember, he had lost consciousness and when he had come to he was in a hospital. What he realized later is that during the accident he had somehow been found and bitten by a vampire. This caused Ken to be turned into a vampire as well, giving him increased strenght, speed, durability and healing powers. He didn't know what exactl had happened or who had turned him but decided to train himself and control his new powers.

Ability: Thanks to his vampire abilities Ken has increased strenght, speed, durability and healt, something that allows him to withstand and regenerate practically any wound as long as he gets some time. He can also change the input of this abilities, meaning tha th ecan distribute his energy to increase his strenght or healing powers if necessary.

Skills: He's proficient in martial arts and has great senses of smell, sight and hearing. He's able to copy basic skills pretty easily as long as they're more on the physical spectrum. He's not adept in sword fighting but he knows the basics.

Other: He also carries with him a sword that he himself called Blady, the sword is pretty much normal sword except that it comes with a switch that Ken can turn on and move around, this allows him to increase the weight of the sword. The more the weight increases the stronger it'll become as well as the heavier it'll get.

Name: Sophie von Chamberlain
Gender: Female
Age: R00d to ask a lady!
Species: Vampire
Orientation: Pansexual

Appearance:
grid-cell-22211-1458058363-17.jpg
She is 5'10" in height, though despite this, she has a rather petite build, though her rather rounded hips tend to be eye-drawers in the right setting. She typically wears baggy black clothing to help shield herself from the sun.

Personality: Sophie is one promiscuous vamp, and quite impish to boot. As if that wasn't enough, she has a mischief streak a mile wide, and will sometimes toy with someone with very little reason beyond "It amused me", but will never do something sinister or aimed to kill. A coy smile is always on her lips, but if it turns into a toothy smile, it means nothing good can come out of it.

That being said, Sophie has a giant heart, and hates to see people hurting from the world's malice, especially if they have just went through a tough time.

History: Sophie was born a vampire, and is a very old one at that. Much of her information is kept close to the chest, though she has been around for a few centuries.

One day, Sophie came across a recently orphaned Yamata no Orochi child by the name of Touko Yakumo, who had lost her parents in an attempted usurpation. Feeling bad for the child, Sophie went over to Touko and talked her into getting legally adopted (after dodging more than a few snakes out of paranoia when they first met).

Powers: Sophie has the ability to flawlessly shadow walk, which is the ability to dive into a shadow and use it to traverse to areas she has already been to. When using her shadow walking abilities, Sophie loses much of her shape's form, and can appear as a giant mass of inky darkness, no matter how brightly illuminated the area is, with her only other defining features in Shadow Form being shark-like pearly whites and ball-like red glowing eyes. That being said, she can retain usage of her hands and feet.

While not a power, per say, Sophie can make her teeth razor sharp that better fits a great white's mouth beyond the typical vampire fangs. Also, when annoyed or enraged, Sophie's irises glow bright red.

Beyond that, she has the typical vampire powers.

Abilities: Sophie has lots of skills. Cooking, gun handling, Yokai knowledge, anatomy knowledge from studying fresh cadavers, how to annoy people, stealth, knife handling.

Other: Sophie carries a combat knife with a silver coating along the blade with a special sheath to prevent herself from getting injured or falling ill thanks to her knife.

I felt like I was writing some scientific article with this:
Name: Adrian Dragomir
Gender: Male
Age: 20
Species: Werewolf
Orientation: Whoever catches his fancy

Appearance: Adrian is tall at 6’8’’ however he lacks bulk. While not super thin and lanky, he is still quite thin and lanky, although he has started gaining bulk to match the recently hit height. His hair is caramel brown reaching just to his shoulders, and naturally straight. His eyes are the same color as his hair, while his skin has a nice gentle tan to it. When it comes to clothing, he prefers comfortable and casual, as well as what works best. For him that’s boots meant for working, jeans, and a t-shirt, with a jacket if needed of course.

Personality: Adrian is brutally honest with absolutely no filter due to growing up on a farm without most electronic things. He is by no means however lacking in intelligence. When it comes to the wild and farming he knows quite a bit, and is a good learner. He isn’t afraid of a fight, and will stand up for others and of course himself. He views females as equals, and is very protective of them. He especially idolizes his sister. He is quite laid back and overall friendly unless someone actually pushes one of his few buttons. He enjoys having a good time, and even when in trouble he doesn’t always take it seriously unless the situation deems itself necessary for it. For hobbies he enjoys learning what he needs for school, and loves most of all a good book. He is of course willing to do other things, especially those he didn’t have access to growing up.

History: Born and raised in Romania, Adrian never knew his parents as they died before his memories kicked in. Thus he was raised by his older sister. The two lived with a family on a farm, self-teaching and working to have a place to stay there. For the most part it was peaceful, and the siblings were happy, especially Adrian as he loved learning from his sister about everything. Unfortunately, in his late teens tragedy struck the pair as a couple of boys from over yonder came when the farm’s owners were out. They forced themselves upon his sister, and then killed her. Unfortunately, due to his biology preventing him from actually building up muscle alongside his growing height, he failed to be able to help her, being forced to watch it all. After this he tracked down the boys, and via a carefully constructed plan, killed them. After this he left the farm. When he heard about Nocturne Academy, he decided it was as good as any place to learn how to be a medical examiner.

Powers: Werewolves are those with a human form and wolf forms. They have two forms. These forms are larger than their human forms, and the fur color reflects their hair color. While these forms are larger than their human forms, they are also dependent on the size of the human form. If a human is small, their wolf form will be smaller than someone who is larger than them in human form. All werewolves have this transformation from early age if naturally born, and within a few days if changed. A fully mature werewolf, one that has reached the age of maturity has a hybrid form that again depends on the human size. This form is larger than the four legged form. Like the previous form, this one is colored in fur that matches the hair color. The head is that of a wolf, the torso and arms are much closer to that of a human’s shape. The hands are however sharp claws that can slice easily through flesh, just as much as their teeth, and the arms themselves can be quite powerful. The bottom half is more like a wolf with a tail and wolf legs. Once one has reached the maturity level of this, they can use either form, and after they have achieved their hybrid form, they eventually gain the ability to talk human in these wolf forms, something they cannot do before it.

So what do these forms allow, other than the ability to easily bite one’s head off. For starters their senses are stronger than even a normal wolf’s senses. Thus they have quite the amazing hearing and sense of smell, in wolf form that is. In human form this is dubbed down to normal wolf level. With the transformations it increases, but it is not different for the two forms. In wolf form before full maturity they only speak wolf and of course naturally understand it like they would their native human language.

Their vitality is stronger than a human’s, thus they can withstand more and last longer from deadly hits. Likewise they have faster healing than a human. While this clearly isn't instant, wounds that may take months may take only days for them, though their overall health does effect this in addition to their vitality. They can actually stop their aging once they reach maturity assuming it is not forced maturity.

In their wolf forms, especially the four legged one, they are quite fast. They are also amazing jumpers, especially the hybrid form, in which some of the larger and stronger ones can jump stories high without moving for it. In the hybrid form, they can easily jump from place to place, kind of like a monkey due to their strong arms and legs.

Unfortunately, their strengths come with weaknesses. High pitched or loud noises can cripple them, as can very strong smells, especially when they are transformed. Of course the largest weakness that none can fight through is if they lose a leg, specifically a back one. A prosthetic would not work with all the forms, and movement would be quite difficult. While not entirely crippling, movement is quite hard for them. And just breaking or spraining this limb or really any hinders them.

And of course there are obvious things like the heart, brain, neck, etc.

One of the largest outside of that is silver and chocolate. Werewolves cannot have real chocolate as it burns them, and likewise touching silver with bare skin does the same. Basically both will burn them, and with enough of an amount or right amount of pressure, this can go through the skin to the bones, or even overall kill them, especially if one is hit in certain vital organs. Outside of a burning, wounds from this do not heal at the accelerated rate, but rather as they would for a human of their health and build and whatnot. And of course they are not immune to allergies, cancer, sickness etc.

On two interesting notes. When they transform they do not feel pain, but their clothing does rip, unfortunately for those who are not comfortable being naked. And the second note is-a werewolf has a very flexible spine, especially if removed while they are in their hybrid form. So flexible it works like a whip. This is due to it being the basis for the transformations.

It is also possible for a werewolf to force its hybrid form early or as they put it, force their maturity. This can confuse the body, taking away the ability to speak human in wolf form, and making it to where the werewolf cannot control their aging. It is unknown if there are any other major effects as the situation is quite rare, and very few cases have truly been studied. (It should be noted that maturity is usually reached around twenty-three years of age or later, with the rare cases of twenty-one or twenty-two. It is highly dependent on the individual.)

*One is not turned into a werewolf via a bite.

Abilities: What comes with him being a werewolf. He is not fully mature, and thus he only has access to his first form, and due to lack of bulk, he isn’t that strong physically. However, is quite knowledgeable of nature, and thus knows how to use it to his advantage. Being from Romania he is able to speak Romanian fluently, being a werewolf he speaks wolf fluently, and he has learned English and speaks it fluently.

Other: It is unknown whether or not he is a natural born or turned werewolf, nor does he tell anyone. Whenever anyone asks he simply replies “I wonder” with a mischievous smile, thus showing he is purposely withholding the information.

I totally feel like something is missing from my SU...

Name: Rose Bedingfield
Age: 20 (Birthday: February 18th)
Gender: Female
Orientation: Heterosexual
Species: Day walker
Appearance:
10448615_10152488509374803_1137832258478787223_o.jpg
Rose is a rather attractive female, standing in height around five feet and six inches tall. Her frame is more on the fuller side, but is she by no means obese or overweight. Her skin is a ghastly pale as her eyes are a deep cocoa, and her lips are a pale red. She does try to dress more on the formal side, but has her days where she doesn't really care what she feels like and just dresses to fit her mood. She does like to wear dresses and skirts, but is no stranger to wearing a pair of jeans and boots. Her blonde hair cascades down to the middle of her back, and is rather curly.

Personality: Rose is an interesting set of traits. She despises male vampires, but is tolerant to females. She doesn't mind being around other creatures or humans. She is very overprotective of the people she loves and cares about. She isn't afraid to stand up for herself if need be, and isn't one to let people walk all over her. She secretly has a low self-esteem even though she doesn't show it on the outside. After the incident that turned her If she hunts, she won't prey on innocents, and will usually get her food from criminals or give the elderly a rather swift death if she sees that they are suffering. When she isn't hunting, she spends her time reading.

History: To be revealed in the RP

Abilities: Aside from the usual abilities such as speed, strength and beauty, her abilities are passive. When hunting, she can use her fangs to immobilize her victims with the venom in her fangs, to paralyze them. In large doses, it can be proven fatal. However, if in small doses, it only lasts for a couple of minutes and the victim can resume movement. When she hunts, she usually waits until after the death of the victim before feeding. She does have the gift of viewing other people's memories, but it's very limited and in it's earlier stages. She has an ability to sense the feelings and emotions of those around her, but she has to have a rather close bond before the gift can be activated. This can cause issues when she's in dangerous situations and can't tell the true intention of the person she's around, or if her loved ones are in danger.

When it comes to weaknesses, she has a few. Silver would burn her instantly, and her wounds would take much longer to heal if damaged with a silver object (The metal; not the color. Things colored silver don't bother her). Aside from decapitation and the stake to the heart, she has a weakness to sunlight. It doesn't burn her, but her powers are diminished to almost a non-existing point. To recover, she either has to allow herself to be basked in moonlight. Her emotions are a big downfall of her as she ends up caring too much to people once she puts her walls down and she ends up emotionally hurt more than anything.

Other: She is a great cook and loves to read. She also can play the piano, but isn't an expert by any means. She loves to sing, but only in private.

OTher SU because I couldn't pick one.

Name: Sphisco Aquil
Gender: Male
Age: 19
Species: Rion
Orientation: All you need is love

Appearance: Sphisco has short messy hair that is the color of desert sand. His eyes are like those of a lion, and his skin is just the slightest tanned. His height is average and his build is pure muscle proportional to his body. His clothing choice is comfortable, though he doesn’t seem to have any specific style, unless he’s cooking.

Personality: Sphisco is very confident in himself. He is loyal to his friends and especially his family who he loves more than anything. He loves to cook, it being his favorite past time, and especially enjoys making unique creations. He enjoys joking around, but is serious when he feels the need. However, he is also touchy on some familial subjects, and can at times not understand if someone is joking, or take it the wrong way if family is involved. This can lead to him attacking the other person or saying something wrong. Outside of learning cooking, he loves learning about different cultures and their languages as well.

History: Sphisco’s mother gave him to his very distant uncle when he was young. Thus his uncle Scholar raised him as his own son, alongside a human that the gryphon had adopted. His father he never knew. Growing up with his gryphon uncle and human sister, he was actually quite happy, and enjoyed life with the two greatly. Hearing about Nocturne he decided it sounded interesting and decided to go because why not.

Powers: Rion is a creature distantly related to gryphons. They for the most part look like a lion, though the males do not have manes. Upon the back connected at the top of the ears s a large patch of skin (loose on the other parts of the body), the shape like that of a sting ray with no tail. This is larger than the body itself, and thus covers it entirely. All of the fur is the color of sand, including the patch of fur covered skin.

Rions live naturally in the desert, and thus have adapted to dealing with high temperatures. However very cold temperatures are very difficult for them to handle.

They are surprisingly decent swimmers. More than that though they are amazing diggers, especially with sand. They are very quiet, especially when hunting or waiting for prey. When in sand it is almost impossible to tell where one is due to their digging ability, and blending in, the skin on their back side making them seem flat in the sand. It helps that this skin is controlled by them to a point, able to be stiffened and hardened or softened. This helps to defend against attacks.

Outside of this they of course have sharp claws and teeth. Like all cats they have good balance, and jumping abilities. Basically anything that cats can do, just better than any cats to a very noticeable point.

To some it seems as though this pales in comparison to other species, but a Rion mostly fights by lying in wait and generally prefers not to fight in open simple space unless the space is a desert.

Not all have human forms, or at least do nto show them. When in human form they have catlike abilities but to a lesser extent than what they consider their true form. Their eyes turn red when hunting or feeling very heightened emotions.
Abilities: All those that come with being a rion. He is good at cooking and speaks many languages.

Other: Clearly this is entirely from my insane mind.
Name: Shikoba Penryck
Gender: Male
Age: 18
Species: Hagsfiend
Orientation: Whoever makes him not want to murder them.

Appearance: Shikoba looks like a tall strong young native American. His height reaches to around 6’2’’, his hair is usually kept in a braid reaching past the waist. His eyes are a honey yellow. His clothing made of animal skin, or other fur, or feathers. Whatever he feels like wearing at the time, but all of it made from animals. He carries a scythe with him that can be adjusted in size.

Personality: Shikoba doesn’t particularly care for anyone as is in his nature. Killing means nothing to him, and if he does he would hold their head as a prize, again as per his nature. Despite this emotionless, uncaring nature, he is very curious for his species and actually wants to learn more and study others. He is also quite capable of putting aside his nature for his curiosity, and actually does not care much for fighting.

History: (Optional)

Powers: As a hagsfiend one is naturally a creature that is a kind of mix between and owl and a crow. Their eyes cast a glow that that paralyzes one for an amount of time depending on how much spirit one has decides how well this works, as well as the spirit of the hagsfiend itself. And of course they have the abilities of the two to a point. (Such as vision and what not. However, their hearing is not like that of a barn owl.)

penryck_by_silverstream3221-d6goa1x.png

They also have a kind of magic they call nachtmagen. This is what allows for their eyes to paralyze others. They have small creatures attached to them called half-hags that eat mites and what not off of them. These small creatures also carry poison that can kill if left unattended. They have good noses as well and thus are used for tracking.

The hagsfiend can make one immune to the poison of their half-hags (which they themselves are) and even change one into a hagsfiend. Outside of this nachtmagen, they have very sharp claws and beaks, and can wield weapons in either form.

Their largest weakness however is that they lack oils to protect their feathers from salt water, which will completely destroy half-hags as well. If one gets wet with salt-water then they cannot fly until they dry, and if they are in a cold enough climate, their feathers start freezing immediately.

Other than this they can be killed like anything else, and are especially crippled if they lose their wings or arms.

Abilities: All the normal things that come with his species. He is of course fluent in his species language. He also carries and is good at wielding a scythe.

Other: Totally did not get this from a book and only slightly change it for the purpose of using in the RP.

Here are my two OCs.

Nicolette Flynn (human):
Name: Nicolette Flynn
Age: 19
Gender: Female
Orientation: Heterosexual

Appearance: Standing at 5'3", Nicolette is a small and petite young woman. She has pale skin, light blue eyes, and freckles splattered across the bridge of her nose. Her long, red hair is normally pulled up into a pony tail. Nicolette tends to dress on the more casual side, however, she takes no issue in dressing nice. She is a huge fan of the high waisted shorts and crop top combo. As for footwear, she tends to wear sneakers or combat boots. She always wears makeup and is almost never seen without winged eyeliner.

Personality: Nicolette is a quiet person. However, she is incredibly stubborn, and will go the ends of the world if it means doing something she believes is right. She is a cool, laid back person with hot opinions. Nicolette can come off as quite rude due to this, but she genuinely tries to be a good person.

History: She is suspicious of monsters. Due to a recent incident, she is left looking for answers, and registering at Nocturne just seemed like the perfect solution. Will delve into more later.

Abilities/Talents: Nicolette has incredible aim, and has had experience using guns with her father before. She is a decent shot. Aside from this, Nicolette is exceptionally skilled in building with wood. Also, something important to take note of, Nicolette has taken self defense classes before.

Wish: Knowledge.

Other: Nicolette is a huge nerd. It may be hard to see, but it easily comes through with people she's comfortable with.

Vince Plourde (monster):
Name: Vince Plourde
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Species: Merman
Orientation: Bisexual

Appearance: In his human form, Vince stands at 5'9", and has a well built body. His skin is dark, and his brown hair is shaved close to his head. Numerous tattoos snake around his neck, and around the back of his head and back. They are blue and purple in color. He tends to dress nice, and many would call his look quite hipster. His merman form is not too different; his legs just become a long, off white merman tail.

Personality: Vince is an arrogant boy who is confident in his skills as a merman. He has great charisma, and is a friendly guy, but it's quite easy to spot where his visions fall short.

History: He comes from a rich and noble family who lives off the shore of Martinique. He has a very slight French accent and can speak the language. He grew up with no worries, and is going to Nocturne because his family wishes him to do so.

Powers: In both his human and merman form, Vince has control over water. This is useful, because if he comes into contact with a certain amount of water, he will transform into his merman form, so controlling water, and keeping it away is important. He is weak to ice.

Abilities: He has a beautiful voice. Likewise, he is quite strong, and can stand his own in a fight.

Other: He's the kind of guy who would post an egotistical, acoustic cover of Wonderwall on Youtube.

Name: Melody Brooks
Age: 20
Birthday: March 11th
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Race: Half Human/Half Siren (Mermaid variant)

General Appearance: She has a skinny frame, but she has some toned muscles in her legs and arms, so she isn't lanky. She has curly, mid-back length, dyed, magenta hair, and jade colored eyes. Her face is a heart shape, and she has freckles in the summer months, along with dimples that are visible when she smiles. She also has a pale complexion, regardless of living near a beach. Her clothing changes daily, but her favorite outfit is a modest, white sundress, and tan cowboy boots. When she wears it, she also likes to accentuate her natural waist with a tan belt, and wears a white flower in her hair. Her nightwear also varies, but she commonly wears t-shirts with different pajama pants. During the summer, if she goes swimming in the local lakes, rivers, or public pools, she has three bikinis to choose from: a white bikini with pink and purple polka dots, a brown bikini with tribal prints, and a shamrock green bikini. She has yet to dress formally, so it is unknown.

thumb.jpg


Personality:

Melody is an adventurous, free spirited woman. She loves being out in nature and creating art out in the wilderness, usually by drawing the wild animals she spots. While she loves music, she never really sings unless she is where no man can hear her. She can sing in public, but she plays music at high volumes as to drown out her voice. While she is adept with technology, she chooses not to use social media as a method to keep people at a distance, and so they can't find out anything about her. She has many skeletons in her closet that she prefers stay there. She loves her adopted family, but her adopted mother sees her as a troubled soul, rebel, and a disgrace who needs shunned until she sees the error of her ways. However, her father and two sisters contact her privately via telephone, cell phone, or visitation. She decided to live on her own to live a more fulfilling life for herself, so she could express herself freely. Fortunately, Melody is grateful that her family is unaware of her true lineage. Despite her carefree nature, Melody is also academically smart. She had graduated her local high school with a 4.0 GPA, though it is unclear if she retained any of the information she learned throughout her high school years. She focused on her education rather than social events. However, prom was the only exception in which she partook in any social parties. She also went on two school trips her senior year, and that's where her horrors came to be. Since that dreaded night, she has vowed to do her best to keep a great distance from anyone, especially men. Since living on her own, Melody has also taken self-defense courses in case of an intruder. By no means is he a fighter. She used her classes to physically train her body while also trying to help her mentally. Even though she doesn't show it, she does have physical insecurities due to her lineage. She would love to get married and have children one day, but she doesn't see herself getting close enough to anyone for that to happen. Her mental state isn't the best due to always staying away from people. It has caused loneliness and depression spells. At one point, she got to the point of drugs, alcohol, self-harm, and even attempted suicide due to the guilt of murdering those men. In times such as loneliness and depression, she travels to the woods at night so she could sing out her sorrows. Thankfully she hasn't lured any men with her nightly harmonies.

History: After having intercourse with a human man, that she lured onto her island, Melody's mother killed him. Soon however, she had realized she was pregnant with a child. Her mother was disgusted, and repulsed that this could've happened. Once Melody was born, her mother saw her as a disgrace, an abomination, and ended up abandoning her, hoping somehow she would die. Miraculously, she had washed up on the shores of a beach located in Chincoteague, Virginia. Newlywed couple, Michelle and Miguel Brooks were having a midnight stroll when they found a brown haired, pale, crying infant. They believed God had sent them a child for they could not naturally conceive their own. They took her in and gave her the name Melody. Years down the road, Melody had gained two sisters, both by invitrofertilization. She was around the age of four years. Due to growing up in a strict home, she was not allowed to do the following: Cut her hair, dye her hair, no make-up unless attending formal events, always dress modestly, any potential boyfriends were to be approved by the parents unless they supplied you with one, no technology except on the weekends. Melody had grown to despise every rule except the modest dressing rule. She felt that she was forbidden to channel who she really was, and felt like she was living in a shell. Her parents had raised her in a Christian home with strong morals and values, and the strive for her to excel in academics.

During her time in high school, she was taught to play the piano and flute, was a volleyball player, and was on the yearbook committee. After the senior prom had occurred, the seniors went on two trips: their senior trip to Barcelona, Spain, and the graduation trip to the Bahamas. Melody had went on both trips. Barcelona was her favorite trip since it was the 'calm before the storm'. She enjoyed the culture, food, entertainment, and even learned a little bit of Spanish herself. It was the trip to the Bahamas that exposed her for what she really was. The week in the Bahamas went without a hitch. Melody never swam in the ocean on either of her trips until her final night in the Bahamas.

Melody sneaked out of her hotel room in the middle of the night. When she went to the beach, there was a group of guys swimming and enjoying themselves. She wanted to show off, so she began to run into the water. This was her first time swimming in the ocean, and her last. Soon, she saw herself begin to change. Her skin turned a more pale hue, her eyes glowed neon green, and her hair changed to an reddish-orange. She had grown fangs, and had webbed fingers, and her bottom half was that of a fish. She was mortified at what happened. She began flailing, and diving in and out of the water. However, her natural powers kicked in, and she began luring the men to her with the song of her people. Her mind tried desperately to stop this, but her body had full control, and there was no stopping what was about to happen. The men were charmed by the voice, blissfully unaware that Melody would soon rip their bodies to shreds while licking the blood from their bones. The men didn't scream as they had died seeing their innermost desires. The ocean surrounding her had become as red as the blood that was in the human men. She then fought herself once more, throwing herself onto the sand, causing her to change back into her human form. In fear, disgust and shock, she quickly ran back to her hotel room, where she sobbed herself to sleep.

The day the students were to travel back to Virginia, they were awakened to the news of a massacre at the beach. The shore had been tainted a crimson color, and bones had washed ashore. It quickly had made national news: A family of shark massacre fifteen men in the Bahamas. The bodies were so dismembered, the families couldn't even gain closure. Investigators, authorities, and even media outlets were confused as to what happened, and had no other leads to go on. This had mentally and emotionally destroyed Melody on the inside. When she returned home from the Bahamas, she went to school like usual, and she graduated. However, other students on the trip had begun to spread rumors about seeing her at the beach, calling involvement with the murders. Most of the locals chose not to believe the rumors that a couple of high school teenagers were gossiping about.

The fear of the rumors exposing her led her to move out of her home, and into a home that she inherited by her late grandfather. He had left the house for her, paid in full. All she had to do was supply utility bills and food, which was easy considering she saved her money wisely. When she finally moved in, she chopped her hair off to the middle of her back, and dyed it a reddish magenta color. While her money sustained her necessities, it also paid for much darker things. Her guilt and nightmares of the event led her into drinking alcohol. When the alcohol wasn't enough, she would mix the alcohol with medication. She spent six months doing this, all while adding cutting to the mix of her unstable state. It was one night in November when she couldn't handle being alive anymore. She got a handful of sleeping pills and chugged them, before guzzling down a dangerous amount of alcohol. She had filled up the bathtub with warm water, and got in. Quickly, she had slit her wrists and placed them on the outside of the tub, letting the blood flow free. It wasn't long before the pills took effect, and she began to slowly sink into the water. Soon, her world went black. Around a week later, she had woken up at a University hospital. Her father had been worried and came in to check on her. It was he who found her in that state, and dialed 9-1-1. The paramedics arrived and had did their best to pump her stomach of the pills, and alcohol. Her cut wrists were also bandaged. When the medics had accomplished that, they took a helicopter and flew her to a better equipped hospital.

Mentally, emotionally, and physically, she was still reaping in the side effects of her suicide attempt. Her adopted mother was furious with her 'cowardice', 'weak', daughter. Her father and sisters showed great concern and love for their sickened member of the family. While she was in the hospital, she was put on medication for her depression, anxiety, and nightmares. She was also referred to a psychiatrist outside of Chincoteague. This psychiatrist would keep prescribing medicine as she saw fit, but also would act as a counselor to Melody.

After the suicide attempt, under close supervision, Melody was discharged from the hospital, and was allowed to return to her home. For a while, her father would stay with her at nights. He did so to assure that she was taking her medications properly as well as going to therapy. He also had gotten rid of the sharp objects, alcohol, and illegally obtained drugs. He didn't want Melody to be tempted with her demons. While Melody did go to therapy, she often had to lie about what was really bothering her. It wasn't like anyone would believe she was part sea siren. Six months after being released from the hospital, her father felt that she was ready to be back on her own. He allowed her to have her knives and shears for cooking, but that was it. It took self-help, medication, one-on-one time with God, devotions, and love from her family, minus the mother, to get her to at least half of the woman she was before the trip to the Bahamas.

There isn't days or nights that go by that she isn't reminded of what happened. She will be forever haunted by this curse, and she will always hate herself for what she done. When she heard about Nocturne Academy, she decided to pack up from her home and move there. She needed to learn how to control her Siren side, so there's a chance for her to have a normal life.

Powers: In her human form, Melody doesn't have really any powers unless you'd count self-defense classes a power. Her siren form is currently uncontrollable, but she changes form when she hits ocean water. She gains grey scales, gains a mermaid tail, her nails become claws, her eyes turn a bright orange, and she grows fangs. Her siren form currently her kryptonite as she has no control of herself when she is in it. In her siren form, she also has a neverending desire and hunger for blood (no matter what kind), which is why she can't control herself. Her hunger for blood causes her to go into a murderous rage with no emotional ties, and inability to have any rational thoughts. Her human half also comes with downsides: Being able to get sick as well as not being as powerful on land.

Abilities: She can sing really well (She can only hypnotize men if she sings the song of the siren. Regular songs are perfectly fine and won't affect anyone), her inhuman beauty (in siren form) is a perfect lure for men when she's in the ocean. She can decently hold her own in her human form, but it's far weaker than her siren form.

Other: She loves to sing and draw. She prefers drawing landscapes of lakes and nature.
