Hey, there. Aneri pointed me this way, so I figured I'd make my first attempt at online RP. Mind if I join? Here's my character sheet, if you don't mind me jumping in (and if it's not specific enough I can adjust accordingly):
Student Character Sheet:
Name: Tatiana Varishka
Reference Picture: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/51434943/
Main Element: Light
Appearance: Tatiana is rather short for her age, underdeveloped, and lightly built--almost lanky. Her hair is so dark it is nearly black, though the color varies slightly depending on the time of year and exposure to sunlight. She prefers it short, but has grown it out several times in the winter months. Her eyes are a grayish hazel with long lashes, and have a faraway look, as though she's studying something far-off. Tatiana is not a particularly remarkable-looking girl--pretty enough but forgettable. Her most prominent or memorable feature is the little scar on her bottom lip--the remnant of a schoolyard fight in secondary school. She wears a lot of green (haven't decided if this is important or not yet), and prefers simple clothing that is loose and comfortable. She wears sandals, if she wears any footgear at all--she hates shoes.
Weapon of Choice: While Tatiana would rather not use weapons to defend herself, she enjoys studying them for discipline's sake and has a natural affinity for long, single-handed swords. The sword she uses is a family heirloom; simple, but with much history behind it. It was used by several prominent military members of her clan, and has been kept in good condition for over 250 years. The hilt's original leather has been well-oiled and cared for, and the double-edged blade has been kept sharp, though it rarely leaves its sheath. There are several permanent notches in the blade from battles long ago. It is still a little large for her hands.
Personality: Tatiana is a terminal daydreamer. Her mind wanders; consequently she doesn't always seem like a good student. She is bright, and she likes to learn, but she can be absentminded and somewhat flighty. She has a thick accent, so she may be difficult to understand at times. English (or whatever they speak at the academy) is not her first language, so she has been known to slip into her native tongue, use expressions and idioms that make no sense to her classmates, or not understand cliches and innuendo (examples: "don't have a cow," "off the top of my head," "she has big melons, if you know what I mean."). Tatiana is quiet, but friendly; she tends not to initiate conversation because of her language barrier, but has no problem talking to anyone who seems interested in speaking to her. It annoys her when people purposefully use innuendo to exclude her from a conversation, but otherwise, she is fairly non-confrontational.
