On Ynys Brân, a small island to the south-west of the great realm of Teyrnas Arawn, sits one of the most prestigious academies for magicians and warriors amongst all nations - the Penvro Academy. A fiercely independent institution guarded within the walls of a refurbished yet ancient fortress, the students learning within its halls and classrooms are given a taste of a world without borders, freedom from the squabbles of the sub-kings or the conflicts of their native lands. They are supposed to be allowed to master their magicks in peace, to better themselves independently of any obligations that could await them at home.

Under the gentle but watchful eyes of their teachers, the students can enjoy their school life to the fullest, both through their training in the magical and martial arts, and participations in the clubs and activities that are ever-present within Penvro's campus. And if the concept fascinates them so, the youths are granted many opportunities to distinguish themselves, not only by proving their might in battles and the inter-school and inter-academy tournaments, but also in the quests that may seek the aid of a talented student.

In all things, Penvro seeks to transform the young teenagers that step into its halls into the greatest of adults, so that those who return to their lands will bring the best of themselves with them. The independence of the island facilitates such.

Yet, there is uneasiness in this era.

There are rumblings from the mainland of strange happenings.

Agitators in the royal courts have ambition designs on the academy.

And even Ynys Brân itself is afflicted with mysterious phenomena ...

What does the future for Penvro?

For the students, their school life will certainly be an interesting one.

This is an animesque magical school RPG akin to so many others you see in media (such as the anime battle school shows, or if you stretch the metaphor, Final Fantasy 8), set in an original magitech-based world. General day-to-day technology is vaguely on the same baseline as our world, but with the addition of magic and higher-concept machines and some other exceptions (possibly higher-tech nations). The geography of the world is not entirely fleshed out besides Arawn, which is a monarchy comprised of numerous sub-kingdoms, but other countries exist as well. Their creation is dependent entirely on you, if you are willing to join this RPG.

The martial arts and powers used by your characters are up to you (within reason, of course). This is a diverse academy of warriors and magicians, after all.

The character sheet is below.

Name: Errit, Cole

Age: 16

Gender: Male

Appearance: He's roughly five foot nine inches tall, he has chin length thick wavy red hair. He's got a pretty average build to match his height, not too muscular but not too scrawny either. He wears grey wire-framed glasses that always sit a little too far on the end of his nose, it makes him look smug no matter what he does. His face is spattered with freckles both light and clearly visible. He often wears a light grey hoodie that he keeps the sleeves rolled upon; often one sleeve or the other will slip down if he's not paying attention. He keeps his hands inside the middle pouch or in his blue jean pockets wherever he goes. Normally he can be found in cheap off-brand shoes that are always a little too beat up to be new.

Personality: He's normally quiet, not shy, he simply doesn't talk unless he feels it's necessary. Unless of course, he's with his friends, the few he likely considers his friends, those few he seems to never truly shut up around, they seem to bare what everyone else does not receive. He's loyal but not to the point beyond self-preservation, he will fight for his friends but not if he thinks they are not worth saving, he will drop them. He'll lie, cheat, steal, or kill right in front of someone if he believes it's to his or the greater goods benefit.

Abilities- He uses telekinetics to physically animate human-sized battle puppets of his creation. However he can use them in different ways, this is simply his main use of his telekinetic powers He's being trained in their use and creation as well as the martial art of Hapkido.

Equipment: Collapsable steel short staff, black smartphone, dark blue backpack, basic clothing, sketchbook and pens, battle puppets, a simple tool kit for working on battle puppets, stress ball for telekinetic practice, ibuprofen, anxiety medication

Short Bio: He was born within one of the simpler towns outside the Kingdom Secan Irawnt which lies North East of Teyrnas Arawn. The land while not in true financial distress has begun to decline in the last several years. Just like many others, the Errit family fell onto hard times, as a child Cole often helped his father work around their town doing various odd jobs, one such job was as the local carpenter. During these years Cole picked up what is considered an odd hobby, he fell in love with marionette puppets, when he wasn't helping his father, he used them to put on small shows in the town square for pocket change. It didn't help much but as the saying goes the thought is what counts. After a few years Cole began to have severe headaches and migraines, they often lead to him being hospitalized in the nearest city. When he finally returned home he began to notice a change in his marionettes, they would occasionally do things that he told them to do without him needing to wiggle his fingers. He began to experiment more and more with this strange development until eventually, he could move several of them simultaneously. He eventually told his parents and they began to scrape together money to send him to the best magic school available, Penvro Academy before he left his dad gifted him his carpentry tool set so that he could always maintain his small friends. Cole joined at the tender age of 12 and has been there for 4 years, before joining Penvro he wasn't a huge fan of school but went for his parents because they wanted better for him then they had for themselves. He's a decent student, but would rather spend most of his time in his room working on his puppets, reading, or simply being alone.

Strengths/Weaknesses: Loner- Can work in groups but prefers to go at it alone, less susceptible to betrayal or captured/hostage situation.
Quiet- Easier for him to blend in and get things done, makes him seem untrustworthy.
Looks Smug- Even though he isn't, sometimes his face makes him seem very smug, this tends to upset some people.
Book Smart- All the reading and studying has paid off, too bad he sucks with people most of the time.
Average Build- He's neither large nor small, makes him seem less intimidating but also makes him more approachable.

Other: He's got anxiety, doctors think it's a bi-product of his telekinetic powers, sometimes this means he can have an anxiety attack. This can cause his powers to fluctuate, sometimes violently depending on the situation.

@TwinkleTheToes I had an image of students being slightly younger. Is the age you have for Cole particularly important to you?

I have Rhodri at sixteen, so I suppose putting it slightly closer would be ideal for them to interact more often.

    drawbacks; Changes are not only painful but also physically and emotionally taxing. Consumes a lot of energy.

Bio: There is nothing outstanding in Deum’s backstory. He was born and raised as a normal boy like any other born into and by a secret wealthy ritualistic occult. While he had a mother that gave birth to him, many of the coven acted and claimed to be his parents. While spoiled, he was also held to high expectations. Having enough of it and the lavish lifestyle he left, escaping to the school and enrolled himself to learn in peace.
Fears and weaknesses: Boundaries, shackles, confinement, cages, loss of control, being trapped in the dark. Claustrophobia.
