GHOST SWEEPER CHRONICLES

Co- GM: Mastermind001

Heavily Ghost Sweepers Mikami influenced. The game play focus is gonna be more player driven then anything else.

Story: As Humanity expands, so in turn the amount of available space must decrease. As urban society expands over nature, former creatures of myth and legend lose their homes some merely move on the other side, others find refuge on holy ground, others still adapt and blend in with society, others however at not so complaint and in turn begin to cause trouble all over the human world. Haunting, Killing and terrorizing people

Governments struggle around the world to combat these new threats. Modern machinery is worthless, incapable of harming the majority of these apparitions and worse yet often turn against their users. It is in this catastrophe that a new occupation forms, or rather a formerly shunned one re-emerges, Ghost Sweepers. People with spiritual powers capable of exercising these trouble some spirits. They serve as all purpose ghost experts, need to exercise as an annoying spirit, done. Need to find out if your curse , easy. Yup they do everything. Provided you can pay the extraordinary fee of course.

Plot:
You are a Ghost Sweeper employed by one of Tokyo's Ghost agencies. Your objective is stupidly simply take care of your clients spiritual problems. Make as much money as you can exercising the various ghosts that haunt your client(s). You can refuse a job offered, bargain for more money etc, but keep in mind what your character does, if they fail or not effects the rating of your agency. The better your reputation the more money you can get and the better missions you get sent on.

How you do it is up to you. If you wanna save as much money as you can, talking and helping such creatures as ghosts come to turns with their deaths or suggesting they relocate is a very viable method. One that if you decide to embark on will fail 80 percent of the time and often result in injury. Others, may simply deem talking waste full and instantly start to try to force the spirit away. While often the quickest way its by far the most expense as seals are by far not cheap. The more expensive the seal the more effective it is. Professionals have a couple more options as they have developed there spiritual powers to effectively handle spirits.

Keep in mind that often they're be a rival sweeper who might be hired to obstruct you from your job or have the same goal. If work together or not depends on you. Keep in mind the majority of the time your rivals not gonna work for free and your goal is making money. However dead people can't make a lot of money can they.


Agencies:

Amber & Jade: One of the most well known exorcism agencies in not only Japan, but the world. Or rather it was, it has long since lost a lot of its fame from days of old as a series of unfortunates cumulated in its fall from grace. However never one to look back at pass failures. Its owners, began anew, restarting the agency from scratch in hopes of recapturing the days of old.

Seventh Book of Retribution Chapel: Or Seventh as many shorten it to, is an agency that doubles as a church. Unlike your typical agency where your money defines what kinda of person you are, The Seventh has a policy of taking assignments for the less fortunate and the pure of heart. However it has been known that money can cleanse one of their sins as well.

Characters: The majority will be simple apprentice level sweepers with no additional abilities. A couple characters will be allowed to start off as Pro level sweepers or have additional ability. Species are for the few who aren't human. If you can give me an interesting enough reason why your characters, not human and wants to exercise ghosts then I'll let you no problem.

CS WIP

Name: Gabriell "Gatsby" Johnson

Species
: Human

Age: 28

Agency: Seventh Book of Retribution Chapel

Appearance:

Gabriell's hair color is black like a raven's feather. Combed back and slicked gel so it stays that. Occasionally Gabriell wears a dark green bowler hat to match his jacket. The color of his eyes is teal, an unnatural shade of iris. Inside the pocket of his blazer is a pair of reading glasses with a solid silver colored frame.

Gabriell wears a dark green blazer over his white dress and light brown vest. Under the collar and around Gabriell's neck is a bow-tie, red in color. The pants, Gabriell wears are dress pants and is dark brown in color. Shoes are brown, ruffed up as they have been wore for a couple of years. Most people assume he's professor due to his choice of attire instead of a leader of a church group.

Personality:

Drive: Justice

Discipline:
Christianity

Abilities:


-Conjurer

A SIDE: When his latent powers were revealed, Gatsby discovered that he was in fact a conjurer of a sorts. A sorts, being since you can't make something or nothing, Gatsby required a medium. Said medium happened to manifest itself into the form of a book. Now with this power, Gatsby can create anything he needs or wants by sheer will using the pages of his book. Apparently the pages, fly out and scatter about, to construct whatever Gatsby desires. They fold, bend, and wrap. Unfortunately, his power can only create one item or object at a time.

^Limits
The pages are paper so water and fire have definite effects on them. However, it requires a lot of water and fire to truly effect them. Regular sharp weaponry and guns are noneffective. The biggest object, Gatsby can make is an elephant while the tiniest item is a sewing needle.


B SIDE: As his Sweeper career expanded so did his powers of conjurer, in the form of penmanship. Apparently a pen manifests itself into one of Gatsby's hands. With said pen, all Gatsby needs to do is write on one of his page constructs to cause an effect. A verb is required to make all of this happen.

^Limits
The pen never runs out of ink. If something other than an action word is written, than nothing at all will happen. Only the pages of Gatsby's book can some happen, regular paper won't cut it.


Skills:

-Occult Comprehension


Gatsby can grasp the occult quite well. From concepts like alchemy for example to tools and weaponry. Tools and weaponry, he can handle quite well, but still requires practice. Course, Gatsby tends to study a lot during the free time he ever gets due to his responsibility as a sweeper and a church leader.

History: Why you became a ghost sweeper if your human, why you are working for your agency, if your not. how much experience you've had with the super natural, etc.

Name: Kadokawa Ouki

Species: Human - Psychic - Professional GS

Age: 22

Agency: Amber & Jade

Appearance:
Rather short, Ouki only stands at 165 cm and is, although muscular, rather slight in build, making him look even shorter than he already is. He has long straight black hair, oft-tired looking eyes, and a rather tanned complexion. His clothes usually tend to have a more traditional-styled robe upper garb with more modern bottoms and shoes. His most distinctive article of clothing is his prominent necklace made of alternating magatama and orbs of red jade and black divine steel, respectively.

Personality:
Mischievous at heart and still unsure of his social skills, Ouki tends to overcompensate by acting rather impulsively and over-the-top. After his emancipation from the shrine in which he spent most of his time, he was reserved and quiet; however, after learning the good that his abilities could bring, he relaxed much more in both air and personality. He despises humanity quite freely inside, and, after many years in isolation attempting to gain control over his own spiritual and psychic powers, which had manifested themselves in the form of extreme psychometry, he can only see humanity from the outside. His abilities have made him enough of an outcast that he relates more to the spirits that he has befriended and sweeped before his human compatriots. As a sweeper, he prefers some attempt at reason and suggestion to blatant destruction, though he will not hesitate to participate in an exorcism if he judges the spirit unwilling to reason.

Drive:
His drive is mainly focused on the taking of money from those who have it, rather than getting money for himself. He despises the very idea of money and the society that has created itself around it, while he, himself, has very little use for it. He also finds motivation in the idea that his unique abilities can help him understand ghosts in the way that other sweepers cannot, so he can help the spirits pass on where others would just kill them.

Discipline: Shinto Purfication - Sealing and Barrier Arts

Abilities/Skills:
-Psychometry - The ability to "read" through touch. For Ouki, this includes both animate and inanimate. Unsealed, the amount of information he can gain through touch can be limitless, but he has no control over the amount he reads or what he reads from (if he is barefoot, he will begin "reading" the floor, for example).
-Sealing Art: Mind Seal - This self-applied seal can limit his abilities such that he has the power to control his psychometry at the expense of limiting it. Inanimate objects will only show a limited history of seven days while animate objects will show a history of seven days and thoughts only up to seven hours in the past. In return, he can choose who or what he reads from, and when. The seal can only be applied once per cycle of seven days, so if he unseals himself for any reason, he must place himself in isolation until he can reseal himself again. The seal is manifested in the magatama necklace he wears.
-Sealing Art: Kekkaijutsu - Focusing his spiritual energy, Ouki is able to erect a barrier - either to trap something (spiritual or real) or defend.

-Ofuda - A rudimentary skill for ghost sweepers that allows them to activate the sealing powers of ofuda talismans.
-Sereiseki - A high-purity stone that reacts with explosions to spiritual power.


History:
Born to the illegitimate second wife of a corporate CEO (who, it was later found out, had only gained his position through liberal use of a weak telepathic power), Ouki grew up without a real father to his name for much of his early life. By the time he had turned ten, his father had abandoned his second family for his legitimate first and another, younger, illegitimate third. His mother's attempt at killing them both ended in the awakening of his psychic and spiritual powers and her death. He was taken into foster care, where, unable to completely understand and at the mercy of his own power, while coping with the loss of his mother, he terrorized his foster parents and siblings until they were forced to send him back to an orphanage.

After the manifestation of his psychometry, however, associating with people normally had become impossible. However, upon the suggestion of a GS, he managed to find solace and lived much of his life in a Shinto shrine that specialized in the oldest most traditional sealing and barrier arts. There, he found, his psychometry would not work - not with the shrine's protective shields, or the barriers over body and mind that the disciples maintained as a part of their training. Instead, he was forced into heavy training to learn to seal himself as soon as possible - including a trial that took away much of his life essence and thus stunted his growth and lifespan. The seal itself would never have been the first seal taught to a newcomer to their discipline - however, as Ouki could not function outside of the walls without it, he was forced to choose between risking his life or living without freedom. Ouki eventually succeeded after choosing the former, but the eventual toll, in addition to the ones inflicted upon him during the trial, would prevent him from being completely healthy at any time due to lack of sleep, and would force him to strictly adhere to the teachings of their order.

Ouki eventually left the shrine at the behest of the governmental ghost sweeping agency that needed his unique abilities to track down a stealthy ghost that possessed people and committed murders before changing hosts, making it nearly untraceable. However, by using Ouki's psychometry abilities, they managed to track down the ghost and exorcise it before it had a chance to change hosts once more. It was then, after seeing the potential brutality of spirits (which were docile and harnessed by his shrine's practitioners as Shikigami) and the equal brutality with which sweepers dealt with them, Ouki took a temporary leave of his shrine duties to enter into the profession.

----FIN----



Name: John Corwin

Species: A poor, average HUMAN artist (YES!)

Age: 28 years old

Agency: Seventh Book of Retribution Chape


Appearance:
Image


Personality:
John’s a bit of a loner, often preferring a pencil and a piece of paper to the comforts of society. And who can blame him? For with comfort comes drama. And drama is one of the things John dislikes about society, so he avoids it while he can. Unfortunately, while he can do wonders with a pencil and paper, not having an actual won’t really cut it for life. But that’s okay. John relies on hope to keep him living, and a lot of perseverance and dedication. If anything he hopes to one day be able to create the perfect drawing, one that can find beauty in the humanity of emotions. Meanwhile he finds that many are disheartened from his work, and becomes disheartened himself as a result. Friends are almost out of the question, and even if he does manage to make a friend it doesn’t last long. This is either due to the friend finding him to depressing/weird, or his thinking that the friendship will eventually led to one of them getting hurt. He will go to a private/public party if invited though, but that’s only because of the free food. Usually his plans for such occasions are to take the food, and leave. Though sometimes that is not always the case and someone stops him on the way out, forcing him to partake in activities he would rather not do. If a fight breaks out at the party [anywhere in general really], he’d leave regardless, without saying a word to [and will later claim he did so because it was giving him a “headache”]. That’s why he isn’t yet committed to a relationship. One; because it involves drama, and two; he really isn’t that committed to love. That is to say love is impossible for the guy, try reading any of the poetry John writes and you’ll see why.

John may be a depressing dude to hang around with, but there are some who discovered that he is very helpful in nature. If you have a problem, and you would let him in, who’s to say he wouldn’t help you. He’s just afraid really, but secretly he wants to help as many people as possible if only through inspiration. He hopes to do that through his paintings [hasn’t quite worked out for him yet, but hey its getting there]. A constant wanderer from apartment to apartment, street to street, he sees the people and what they are going through and identifies with them as a person going through hardships him-self. It’s just that fear of commitment that really gets to him, and all that drama. And it isn’t until recently that he starts to break out of shell, mostly due to seeking help after fearing he was becoming insane. But he feels for people. And if given a chance he can very well be a good friend.


Drive: Hope


Discipline:Christianity [Recently went back to religion after leaving it alone for so many years, if only out of desperateness].


Abilities/Skills:
~Abilities~
Empathy---- John can sense the emotions of others, and in extreme cases can actually feel what other’s are feeling. He is able to do this either through eye contact, hearing a person’s voice, or simply being around a person experiencing powerful emotions. As John would be quick to tell you, there is a difference between the emotions of spirits and the emotions of the living. And that’s why John can easily identify spirits, due to the extremities of a spirit’s emotion. He is also able to identify WITH the spirits, thus opening a door for insightful conversations. However…
Memory Visioning---- Comes directly after feelings experienced via Empathy. If John manages to become to connected to a spirit’s emotions [Note the word ”spirit”], John is able to experience whatever memory that may be related to a spirit’s emotions. These memories are experienced in vivid ways, in which John may very well feel everything that happened in said memory, as if it was his own. In a sense, this form of vision could very well be a spirit’s will to communicate, but in most ways is directly related to a spirit’s emotions. After experiencing a spirit’s memories, John is often prone to withdrawal, hiding within himself until the initial shock of experiencing someone else’s memories subsides. During such a stage he will have an urge to draw the image on a piece of paper or hard surface, out of fear for what may happen if he held the image in too long [mainly for the fear of nightmares]. Unfortunately, the memory remains engraved in his mind despite his putting it on a surface. Which means if he sees anything [and I mean ANYTHING] related to the memory he experienced there poses a danger that he would experience it again.
Photographic Memory---- When it comes to memory John is able to recall pictures clearly in his mind, enabling him to record the image down on something such as a piece of paper, or accurately describe to interested listeners.

~Skills~
Artistic Skill---- John is a highly skilled artist, pursuing realism as his art form of choice. And it works for him. His artwork is often realistic, and close to picture-perfect. If you were to ask John to draw anything, anything at all, there is a good chance he could do it, but only if the request is realistic and can be associated with his memory. And even his quick sketches seem good. Most of his paintings portray portraits of individuals or scenery. Many who look at his works claim that they tell a story. Others claim they get some sort of emotional response from the paintings. It is as if there was a lot of emotion and dedication put into the drawings. Unfortunately his artistic skill is still yet to be fully recognized, and may never be.


History:John’s first run-in with the supernatural came soon after he began developing his skills as an artist. He was a young teenager in high school who had recently started crushing over a girl in his class. However, another boy was in love with her as well. He was beginning to take art classes after a teacher noticed the doodles in his notebook. So, in an effort to impress the girl, he attempted to draw a picture of her for Valentine’s Day. Alas, he only found that she had liked the other boy more than he. Disheartened, he threw away the picture, and spent lunch in the library alone. In the comforts of the book shelves, he discovered that somehow he felt worse being there. He also discovered that he was beginning to get a migraine. What he did not know that a spirit saddened for the same reason he was miserable resided in the library. It was the spirit of a young man who was stuck in the moment his girlfriend cheated on him. Being enveloped in memories about a girl he never knew, yet feel like he had known, John had suddenly felt like drawing a picture of this girl. He didn’t have paper with him, but he did have a pen. Taking a book off of one of the shelves he began furiously drawing in its pages, a drawing of a girl with wavy, brown hair. A girl who’s face looked like that of his crush. The librarian caught him in the act, ending him up in detention. He was also sent home with a letter to his parents.
For the next few days all John dreamed about was that one girl, and he spent his time in school daydreaming rather than work. He wasn’t allowed into the library any longer, but was actually relieved by this. He was afraid of the library, afraid that he would experience the feeling of being in someone else’s head again. He began drawing more frequently, using artwork as an excuse to not talk to the girl he liked or anyone else in general. His grades plummeted and both his teachers and parents grew worried. They all tried pressing him to be more social and offering him help, but he ignored their pleas. Eventually, all he wanted to do was go back to the library despite his fears, and meet the person who shared him his memories.

The ghost’s name was Jeffery that much John knew from his memories. He was very much like him, not good at sports, a bit strange to others, likes to put smiley faces on tests. He was a music-oriented guy, so John could kind of relate to him. When John finally got to go to the library again he would sit in the same spot before with a bunch of paper and pencils and just get teary eyed with the ghost. In a year or so he knew everything about the ghost’s life and a couple others as well. The girl who fell from the balcony, the girl who drowned in the pool, the lunch lady who got trapped in the cooler, the boy who died in a gruesome fight, he knew them all. But as he grew closer to the dead, his relationship with the living was strained by his new-found ability. He became known as the creepy dude who spoke with people who weren’t even dead. To the dead he was someone they could empty their emotions into, even though his mental health was a stake. Sometimes he would break into tears out of nowhere, or angrily scream at no one in particular.

At the age of sixteen he was diagnosed with Bi-Polar Disorder.

High school passed by in shades of grey, he spent the next two years drawing whenever he got the chance, sketches of individual people who had a strange realness to them. Art class was the only class he did well in, all others he got 60s and 70s. He would barely pass each marking period. The only college he was interested in was far away and expensive. He wasn’t even able to get accepted, to anywhere actually. Freelance work was his only option, and he managed to move out of his home into a nearby apartment with its help. Things were going well for awhile; John found work on the internet almost every week. After eight months of being a freelancer however requests dwindled down and found no one wanted to hire him. What was worse, the apartment he lived in was possessed.

The spirit was unlike any he met before. Its emotions were far greater than anything he ever experienced. Every night at a certain time doors would open and close violently, all at once. The microwave he used caught on fire. He had to get a new one, and that caught on fire too. Electricians simply told him the wiring in the house was loose. His light didn’t work, so he couldn’t really draw that well after dusk, making it harder for him to produce more artwork to sell off to people on the streets. He was eventually reduced to eating cold canned food, or stealing from the general market (something he wasn’t versed in at the time). On the streets he began a beggar of a sort. He would carry with him a bag full of art supplies he spent most of his savings on, and offer to draw people things for a fee. He had lived in the Big Apple so such a thing was not uncommon.

Months passed and he began a wild decent into debt. He could barely pay the monthly rent and he couldn’t keep the heat or the electricity on. The spirit, in the mean time, was growing angrier. For reasons John still doesn’t know the answer to, the demon hated him. As far as John was concerned it wanted him out, and was going to do whatever it took to make him leave.

Fate had it that John lived next to the apartment of the very women who could help him. She was named Miriam, and was a devout Catholic who attended the nearby chapel. She knocked on his door one day and began rambling about her mission and that Jesus loved him, John denied her entrance for the first time. He couldn’t believe any of that stuff after what he was going through.

The next day she came again, this time seeming desperate. “I can hear what’s going on” she said. Reluctantly John let her in, and she told him of her chapel, and a priest who could perhaps help his suffering go away. She invited him to mass on Sunday, and left.

Sunday was an awkward moment for John. All these people around him were strangely peaceful, unlike the ones on the streets. It was like all of these people were content with living in a world of pain, and had nothing to worry about at all. They accepted him into their service, prayed with him, and praised his talents. After service the priest embraced him like he was some lost son, and when he told him of the demon who was threatening his life the priest solemnly offered his services “before it was too late”.

The demon wasn’t dumb, they never are. Once John came home from service, he found he was locked out and had to force his way in. Once he was in a barrage of random items met him. He grew angry at the demon, not able to ignore it any longer, quieting it with a yell. For the next few days he experienced vivid dreams of what he thought the thing planned for him, possibly to threaten him against the exorcism. It failed, and the priest came to successfully ward it off.

The apartment was now calm, but John couldn’t stay in the apartment any longer. The priest offered him sanctuary in the chapel until he could find a new apartment. Thankful, John agreed.

For the next couple of years John became a wanderer. He would move from apartment to apartment, never lasting any long, and spent most of his time at the chapel doing work for the priest. Other people pitied him as he continued to sell artwork on the streets. Some gave charity (like free food or clothes) to him, others gave him spare coins, and the rich offered him a spot in New York City’s Gallery or gave him invitations to parties (which he only went to for the food). Women found him handsome, and tried to attract his attention whenever he was out if only for entertainment. The middle aged continuously recommended he found himself a job. At this time in his life he ran into more spirits than ever, some of there were stalkers. And their memories plagued his dreams. People who glanced at his work found that they were too frightening to behold, and were even more frightened when the artist grabbed hold of them, telling them about a spirit of some sort. He became known throughout New York City as the “Artist Medium”, a play on the material or techniques used by an artist to create or produce a work.

Eventually John realized that if he ever were to survive he needed to get a job, and with no one else to go to he went to the priest whose name was Father Channer for advice. It was on that day John heard of the Seventh Book of Retribution Chapel which Channer was revealed to be a member of. He was told by Channer of what the priest thought to be his abilities, and advised him to not be afraid of them but use them to help the people he feared for so much. Channer also prepared for him a meeting with the Seventh.

With a new hope for the future, John looked to perhaps use this opportunity to do something he never did before, create something happy.

WIP

Name: George 'Kid' Archer

Species: Human

Age: 21

Agency: Amber & Jade

Appearance:

Personality: Kid is a nice kid but there is one part of his personality that irks almost everyone: his constant need to ask questions. He can't stop from asking someone about whatever they are doing if it looks interesting. Even if it is not interesting, if he is bored, he will ceaselessly examine what is around him. Another thing that sometimes creeps people out is when he appears to start talking with himself. In that case, he is usually is either talking to Gaia or a nearby spirit.

Drive: Curiosity

Discipline: Pagan

Abilities/Skills:

Geomancy- Kid can interact with the four elements, learning about what has happened naturally. By doing so, he can locate the fifth, extraneous element: the human spirit. He cannot directly see the spirits. He can only 'see' the outline because he cannot actually see the spirit. His abilities are not bound to nature. He can converse with spirits in urban areas just as well as those in the rural areas.

Gaia- Kid has a partner elemental spirit who resides in a branch. That branch was taken from a huge, elderly redwood mere moments before a construction company knocked it down to make way for a new hotel. While Kid's power allows her to stay alive, she has very little power. She does have knowledge and Kid often consults her. This tends to bemuse those without the ability to sense spirits because it looks like he is talking to a stick. To those who can see spirits, Gaia appears as a young, sexy woman clothed in leaves with bramble-like hair.

Later on

Summoning- Given enough time, Kid can infuse the spirit of a location into a doll he carrier. The spirit can tell them everything that has every happened where it is located. In addition, it can lend energy for rituals. The more powerful the area, the stronger the spirit. For example, Niagara Falls has a much more powerful spirit than, say, a stream.

History: Why you became a ghost sweeper if your human, why you are working for your agency, if your not. how much experience you've had with the super natural, etc.

Geo, quick question, are you shooting for the Pro Status or the Rookie Status?

Abilities/Skills:

Start with this two now

Geomancy- Kid can interact with the four elements, learning about what has happened naturally. By doing so, he can locate the fifth, extraneous element: the human spirit. He cannot directly see the spirits. He can only 'see' the outline because he cannot actually see the spirit. His abilities are not bound to nature. He can converse with spirits in urban areas just as well as those in the rural areas.


Gaia- Kid has a partner elemental spirit who resides in a branch. That branch was taken from a huge, elderly redwood mere moments before a construction company knocked it down to make way for a new hotel. While Kid's power allows her to stay alive, she has very little power. She does have knowledge and Kid often consults her. This tends to bemuse those without the ability to sense spirits because it looks like he is talking to a stick. To those who can see spirits, Gaia appears as a young, sexy woman clothed in leaves with bramble-like hair

And then later on this

Summoning- Given enough time, Kid can infuse the spirit of a location into a doll he carrier. The spirit can tell them everything that has every happened where it is located. In addition, it can lend energy for rituals. The more powerful the area, the stronger the spirit. For example, Niagara Falls has a much more powerful spirit than, say, a stream.


Cause in this type that would be a little too much for a rookie to have this early at this stage.

Name: Lester Camondy

Species: Human. Orchestra member, Jazz clarinet player.

Age: 26

Agency: Seventh Book of Retribution Chapel

Appearance:
Lester is a well-built man standing at 6ft 2 and has a clean, smooth face. Slightly tanned. His eyes are of a sapphire blue and he has slightly brown short hair combed neatly to the back. Nothing really stands out much in his appearance, other than the fact that he looks like a total gentleman.

Lester loves silk, most of his clothing are made of the high-quality and soothing material. Lester always wears a simple white-colored collar shirt with long sleeves accompanied by a silk tie, often red-colored, and small black buttons, he also wears a pair of sleek black-colored pants. Along with the collar shirt, Lester wears a black vest on the outside, oddly it has no buttons. Lester only has two pairs of shoes, both black dress shoes with white shoelaces.

Personality:
Lester a total gentleman and womanizer at the same time. He stresses on the importance of being polite and enjoying life to the fullest at the same time. Though his personality may not show it, he is extremely serious and knowledgeable about religions, taboos, spiritual-related things and of course, music.

Lester prefers talking his way out of things rather than fight but will if he must.

Drive: It's odd but Lester's drive is Peace. He wishes that his jobs is able to help things move on to the other side and help make the world a much better place. Due to this, he absolutely hates people who submit to the seven sins.


Discipline: It's kinda funny that Lester was the first free-thinking member of the Seventh Book. He does admit though, that his morals and beliefs are pointed towards Taoism and Christianity.

Abilities/Skills: WIP

History: WIP

Too tired to do anything, will update tomorrow.

Flame, it's obvious that this is your first RP in SNAFU.
Do try and revise your CS with more details.
Also, seeing as it is, most of the sweepers can see and talk to ghosts already. :P

I've started a theme, that I had no idea that I started. Wonderful, I can't to see how all this plays out soon.

@Flame: Some tricks to go into detail. Think about how she does her hair, does she wear glasses? Facial scars or not? What designs are on the clothing she wears? Floral patterns or Polka Dot? Is there any attachments to her clothing? Does she wear any items like a wrist watch or jewelry? Stuff like that for example.

I'm not putting you on the spot, mind you and I hope you enjoy this rpg.
