PostSubject: The Lovely Gems Of Ava!   Sat Nov 24, 2012 4:39 pm

Cinnamon “Syn” Rayne






Birth & Age Details
Syn was born on the 5th of June, making her [currently] 18.

Gender
Obviously a female. Otherwise things’d be quite confusing for everyone.

Demi-God Details
She is the Daughter of Maia, Goddess of animals
She was [originally unknowingly] claimed after being saved from a near fatal Hell-Hound encounter
She was brought to Camp Half Blood after said attack
She technically should be a year rounder, but did leave quite suddenly (see "New History")
It is not her first year at camp, but she hasn't actually spent a whole year there.

Mortal Family
The only things known about her father is that his name is David Rayne, and that he is dead. Nothing else is known, such as, how he died, if he had any other family, where he raised her etc.

History  [Old]  
Spoiler:
 

New History
This 'new' history of Syns is much like the other, only it is set for her more recent adventures. As many of you know, I was inactive for quite a while. So I will give you a brief detail [brief is probably a lie] of what happened to Syn during this time.

When we last saw Syn, she was basically in love with the lovely Adam Dunlap. Before the giant vanishing trick of mine, she  had been seen less and less around camp. The thing was, ever since Syn's Awakening, she had been moving around a lot, never staying in the same place for more than a few days. Such things were not easily forgotten, and the habit, although put away for a while, is not something you can just break. But she tried so hard to stay, and always eventually returned. Until one terrifyingly confusing day where Syn had an accident, sort of.

So basically, this was what happened [because otherwise this will be over a thousand words].
Syn had a dream one night that she was a bear looking for something. It/her came across another bear sleepingand tried to wake it up because it had found what it was looking for. Syn herself woke up because something kept nudging her and the first thing she saw was the beast peering down at her. Which made her realize that she had turned into a bear. Panicked, she went to run but the other bear stopped her and explained that she had to calm down, and after about 20 minutes of what is basically an attempt at meditation, Syn finally turned back into a human. The bear then told her she must leave with him, but she didn't want to just leave without an explanation or without telling Adam first and it led to an argument between the two until Syn finally came to a compromise. She wrote on the only piece of paper she had, the letter she wrote to herself explaining the loss of memory when she was 13, and sent a sparrow to leave it on Adam's bed, the letter simply saying
I am so sorry, Adam, but I have to go.
                                                         ~Syn

And then she left. The rest of her journey was marked by three stages. The first was the bear stole some clothes for her, because the full transformation she made caused her clothes to be torn. The second stage was them both arriving at a mountain where Syn was taught how to control her new power by the bear, funnily enough. The third part of her journey was marked by her leaving the bear and returning, as it became surprisingly eventful in that she was attacked by various monsters, each encounter bringing her confidence up. These fights caused her not to fear them as much, and she began to openly seek monsters out if she knew they were close, honing her new found power. In it, however, she learned a new ability; she could now talk to these monsters, which left her wondering if killing them was really the right thing to do.


Appearance [Old]
Spoiler:
 

New Appearance

Syns auburn hair, usually long with its loose curls, now sports a new style. Just below her ears, her curls have now vanished into a messy pixie-cut which is more practical and easier to manage. The look suits her, and gives a clearer view to her face, allowing her intense gaze to bear down on others clearly. Her teal-ish eyes are framed by long dark lashes, and at slight arch of her eyebrows accentuating their shape. To meet this gaze of hers is to feel as if one is being read like a book, every expression and even the slightest of movements caught by her ever watchful eyes. Seemingly, they stand out slightly green against her red hair, complimented by the creamy-white skin unburdened by blemishes, as do her lips, having a light cherry blossom hue.

Her graceful figure has not vanished since she left camp. Instead, it seems to be more noticeable in her gait, the confidence she has gained providing her movements with a more powerful and dominant air. Her slim, yet softly toned muscles hint to her fitness without showing it off, and fits nicely with her height of 5'10, making her look average of an average build from a distance.

She still does not care much for appearances, and this can be seen in her style of clothing. She can be seen wearing some form of pants or shorts, these easier to move in the better, accompanied by t-shirts, sleeved or not. She is often seen bear footed, or with the most comfortable and worn looking boots anyone has ever seen. Although she does not wear make-up or accessories, she is always seen wearing (or at least with) two bracelets, the first being a ball-chain, a small rectangular pendant with Syn engraved into it. The second bracelet being a gift from Adam. It was wooden, and the original paint, orange, was peeling, worn down from Syns fingers fiddling with it.

And she still does not blend in, sticking out like a llama in business class. The only difference with this trait of hers is that not only is it because of her poor blending in with general civilization and technology, she now sports a strong, commanding prescence through an air of confidence in herself. She stands straight and tall, less frightened of people now that she feels as if she can fight for herself, rather than run.

Her scars are near invisible now, the pale white claw marks extending down the left side of her back mostly hidden beneath her clothing, while the cut on her shoulder a thin line barely visible to the eye.

Personality [Old]
Spoiler:
 

New Personality
After her most recent endeavors, Syn has seemingly 'matured' in a way that can be seen as either good or bad. When Syn first arrived at camp, she was timid and shy, but very open and curious. Now, she has a new confidence in her, the change easily noticed by those who knew her. Standing tall and proud, Syn will meet ones gaze directly without fear or nervousness, her gaze to some frightful in it's intensity of directness, while to others it seems challenging, as if daring them to confront her. Yet however direct and confident she seems, she has a guarded and more cautious outlook, not necessarily untrusting, but more of she knows now how people can be, even if she doesn't know from firsthand experience.

One can certainly notice a change in Syn's demeanor. Her unconditional kindness is near continuous, yet she doesn't simply give everything up to others. In fact she is much more likely let people know if they are asking too much of her, and will probably ask for something in return. She is not unfair and tends to make sure everyone is treated similarly, but can be extraordinarily loyal when it comes to her friends. She tends to act on instinct, a habit which has helped throughout her 'known' life, and doesn't see why it wouldn't help her now.

No-one has truly seen Syn enraged, and should consider it a blessing that they haven't. This is because Syn is, essentially, the personification of self-control. She knows how dangerous she can be at times, and always keeps her anger in check, worried that if it takes over, she'll lose control of her powers and hurt someone. This causes her to forget things that bother her and forgive people easily, though this can cause some problems of people trying to take advantage of her.

Fatal Flaws
Syn's intense fear of blood is exactly that: intense. When faced by it, she experiences the symptoms of a panic attack, her face paling, breaking out into a cold sweat, hands shaking, hyperventilating, and a wave of nausea washing over her. It is known to send her reeling back, and make her behave irrationally, her reactions sometimes violent, and other times frightful in her sudden instinct to run away. Therefore she is not one to fight against another person, and if required to hunt, will only gather fruits and vegetables, or fish [because they don't exactly smell like human blood, and don't make much of a mess]. It extends from some unknown experience which, unless she regains her memories, she will never know.


Weapons
Although not known to usually fight, Syn is often seen to carry around a celestial bronze knife, a gift from "a friend". The blade itself is plain, yet the handle is engraved to look like a tree coiled around itself, the branches wound around the sheath of the weapon where different animals can be seen peering out through the branches. Other than these engravings, this four inch blade is nothing particularly special, although Syn often jokingly calls it "Twig".

Talents
Syn naturally is very athletic, her life on the run causing her body to retain a quick, agile, and high stamina to survive in the wild. She seems to fit in with the forest, having strong survival skills and tends to act on her natural instinct.

As the only known child of Maia, Syn has a natural and strong connection with all vertebrate animals, making her able to communicate with, and even command them to do as she wishes, although she dislikes abusing this power. Another less well known, yet clearly noticeable ability when opportunity presents itself, is that many animals who have prolonged contact with her [such as staying with her for many weeks] tends to gather a near human intelligence, appearing to understand more than their species should. However, people generally don't know this because Syn never spends a prolonged time with any one animal if she can help it.

*Her connection to animals has also granted her another gift; originally it was just her increased senses, being able to see, smell and even hear better than a normal human, but now [as mentioned in her newest history], Syn is able to transform herself into actual animals, be it a partial transformation of an arm into a claw etc, or become fully an animal herself. The downfall of this is that she cannot transform her clothes with her, so often tends to avoid full transformations that would cause a sudden but inevitable nakedness, instead only using partial transformations. She has also recent discovered a power which she doesn't necessarily like, but has anyway, to be able to talk to and understand some monsters [mainly lesser more animal-looking ones]. *


Relationships
Adam Dunlap [Remplissage] - Her wonderful lover, or at least he was until she left, she has no idea what their relationship is now and is slightly frightened to find out.
Magnus Starkweather [Excelsior] - That guy whom she kinda knows because he saved her life when she first arrived at camp but other than a few encounters doesn't really know him.

I have also Face claimed this dear lady.

* I bought permission for this wondrous power from the drachma shop and it was given to me by the amazing Zan



HEY GUYS!

PostSubject: Atlas Baby   Sun Nov 25, 2012 7:59 pm

Atlas Toby Strider




Atlas Toby Strider
19 years of age, born the 13 of November, 1993
Claimed by Hephaestus on the third night after his arrival, 8 years ago.

_____________________________________

Family
His mother is Amelia Jade Strider, currently 43 years of age and living in the Coromandel of New Zealand.
His younger brother is Leonardo James Strider, currently 17 (and almost a half), born to an unknown father. His looks are quite similar to Atlas [can be seen in background of photo above].
_____________________________________

Brief History


_____________________________________

Powers/Abilities: The Gadgeteer
He is capable of quickly learning the functionality of new technology, possessing the ability to take apart whole machines, rearrage their entire structure, the resulting machine(s) still operating at least as well as they orignally did. Because of this, he is able to learn ridiculously fast, remembering things for future reference if he needs to repair/build the same thing again. He once was noted to dismantle a car engine and reassemble it into a different configurationbefore returning it to it's orignal state in less than an hour. Each time he makes something he already has made, the time in which he can build it gets shorter.
This ability has earned him the title 'Gadgeteer' from his half siblings, as he is often seen acquiring new machines and technology all the time, improving and creating new gadgets if he can.
_____________________________________

Fatal Flaw
The strange thing about Atlas is his logic. He is very intelligent, and he knows this, but it often gets in the way of his relationships with others, and his emotions. Although he does relax and allow himself to be happy and have fun, he is more likely to push away any negative emotions, looking only at everything logical in order to make decisions. But he also uses this logic on others, criticizing their work and actions if they ask for his opinion, often leaving him in a nasty situation and making people dislike him somewhat. He isn't trying to be mean, he just believes that truth and logic are key.
It also doesn't help that if something hurts him in any way, he hides his emotions, causing him to often seem moody and distracted when something is upsetting him.
_____________________________________

Physical Appearance
It is easy to say that Atlas is more of a normal looking guy, generally not overly attractive, but not necessarily unattractive at the same time.

Atlas's build is, quite simply, large. Standing at 6'4", he already has quite an imposing presence. But seeing as his shoulders are quite wide, and his upper body muscled almost generously from his work in forges, Atlas's presence is much more on the side of intimidating.
With a slightly elongated face, Atlas's features are reasonably more on the average-attractive side. His lips are a darker shade of pink, his skin-tone a combination of pale yet olive, and his brown eyes aren't excessively striking. His hair does not seem to enhance his attractiveness either with its dark brown unruly mess of almost long-ish loose curls. And although all of this may seem like he is not that gifted in the looks department, there is something about him that still causes him to stand out while standing alone.
His light brown eyes, for some reason, seem more golden in fire-light and the red glow of a sunset, and that unruly mop of hair, when properly groomed, shines with a softer, slightly auburn-ish tint. His face is decorated with a light dusting of stubble along his jaw line and chin, seemingly increasing his appearance of maturity a few years. His cheeks are often slightly flushed, as if he were continuously suppressing a gentle blush. Yet all these notable features are subtle, and are only noticeable to a few unless he is dressed up for an event.

A few key features in Atlas's dress sense are his accessories, mainly his jewellery. Atlas has both ears pierced, and usually wears sleepers or plain studs in them. He has a necklace of a silver chain and oval locket, containing the image of his mother and brother inside, while he adorns his left wrist with a large, tungsten carbide watch, while his right is a matching tungsten carbide bracelet.
His clothing choices are more of on the 'comfort and practicability' side. He is seen in plain jeans, singlets/t-shirts, and simple shoes, mainly sandals/jandals(flip-flops I think you call them) outside, and some form of covered shoe when he is making things. He has an assortment of beanies, although he doesn't wear them that often, and a few various jackets and sweaters. He also is known to wear glasses for reading and his more complex projects, although he doesn't tend to wear them out as he finds them cumbersome and the provider of headaches.
_____________________________________

Personality
Cool and collected, Atlas is one of the calmest people you will ever meet. He holds his emotions in check, never letting them overtake him, relying on a combination of logic, common sense, and his vast imagination to determine his actions in what he believes to be important situations. Generally, however, he is very friendly and usually seen relaxed with a smile. He believes that kindness is one of life's greatest opportunities, and barely ever passes over a chance to do something good for someone without doing what he can. He is also easily mistaken for a quiet type, never making himself the centre of attention nor boasting about his successes. However, that does not mean that he'll just sit back and let people walk right over him; he seen as a proud yet humble being, knowing his strengths also come with weaknesses.

From the viewpoints of others/outsiders, Atlas would be named the silent, shy yet intimidating dark-horse of the group. He doesn't talk if doesn't have to, yet he makes direct eye-contact [when paying attention], and often has an intimidating, overbearing presence with his large stature. Alas, this is not the case in a few circumstances. In reality, Atlas is named the nerdy, distracted guy whose mind is always off in the clouds, and it is quite well known that his thoughts are almost always about his complex gadgets he is known to create. His friends know him to be aloof in a dorky manner, generally joking around with and tricking them with his (so-called) "brilliant" acting skills.

Atlas is a very loyal person, often going to great lengths to help out his friends. Sometimes he even seems as if he'd go as far to lay down his life for someone else. However selfless he may seem, Atlas isn't blinded by his loyalty; rather than jump straight into something, he tends to think things through, his mind simply calculating every possible outcome he can think of and going with the most logical one in line with his moral beliefs.

Although he has the right build for it, Atlas is not one who goes out of his way to fight. Sure, he competes in inter-cabin events and such, but he is more likely to be seen using his brain. However, if it comes to it, he can, and will, fight.
_____________________________________

Weapon
Because Atlas is not one to start a fight, it often comes as a surprise to people that he even has a weapon. And he does know how to use it.
Atlas uses a variety of weapons, knowing that sometimes, you don't get a choice with what you are given. However, if he were to choose a weapon, it would be his own celestial bronze axe-hammer. As a two handed weapon, it requires some strength to lift and swing it, yet it seems light in his hands. At the end of a long shaft, which is as long as his arm span, a sharp, curved, double axe blade sits menacingly. It is always polished and sharpened, a slight give away to his care for it, as he made it himself.
_____________________________________



Note to the reader: Holy Moon-Bears! This has turned out very very loooooong. And I have not even finished yet. I apologize for that, but SUCK IT UP, READING IS WONDERFUL. My next task with this bad-boy (not) is to complete his Powers, followed by Family, and then his History! Yaaaaay! Anyways, feel free to PM/comment already about anything (suggestions, errors, etc) so I can improve him, especially on the Powers, because I don't want to overpower him. But also, please do note that I am trying not to over power him, I am simply trying to pay attention to the fact he is in camp for 8 years, so he should be pretty great at his stuff. Still, though, tell me if I am going too far. I NEED TO KNOW, YOU KNOW?


HEY GUYS!

PostSubject: Amelia Wood   Fri Jan 04, 2013 4:42 am


Amelia Sarah Wood NEW CHARACTER IDEA TO BE SHOWN SOON


[img]WILL REPLACE IMAGE SOON[Alison Brie][/imgdoot]

So the other night I came up with this idea of a character who was based on my idealized self, and I want to create her, but she'll probably take me forever. So I decided to write down this for reasons. Also, I am typing in the dark so I will probably have errors until I fix them. It also means I am tired and half of this stuff was from a dream.

=======================================================

Amelia Sarah Wood
Aimz, Aimee, Lia, Mila

19, 11 June
Female

Daughter of Athena or Hecate

Bubbly, silly, joyous etc, QUIRKY, inventive, tries to be mysterious and fails (note she can keep secrets that she is asked to), optimistic and cynical, secretly sad/quiet kinda thing, mischievous yet responsible and honest, contradictory. Weird, likes stories and art. Cocky yet humble stuff, courageous in that she accepts fear and moves past it to do what needs to be done

I am just gonna put notes here. Basically anything relevant to my character making process so I don't have to scrounge my computer, only the internet.

Characters I may/may not make in the [near] future:

A male centaur whose name I cannot remember, whom is actually a friend of Syn's. [Connection not made yet]


Possibly a nymph, not sure which dwelling or what not. [Female]


A female child of one of the big three, or someone else. But I will need to ponder and discuss with others on the one.
