As a rule (as much for you as for any future potential applicants that might by chance spot this post), at least in my RPs, if the first word in the tag-list under the RP title (also visible on the RP page itself by the words "Join status" says "Apply" rather than "Full", it is accepting new players.
Regardless, I'm happy to see interest so soon after posting in the Interest Check. Welcome!

Hmm... interesting. There's certainly something for me to work with on this character, which bodes well for how interesting its story will turn out in the long run. I only really have two points that I feel need clarification:

In the last paragraph of his background, you state that Yarrow discarded the ideals of the Greywoods and became a socialite, presumably trying to build relationships with some of the people he wasn't allowed to interact with before. Anyone in particular? Did he just get buddy-buddy with random (predominantly newly risen due to the Night of the Blood Moon) aristocrats, or do you imagine there's certain people he would have been more or less inclined to associate with? The easiest would obviously have been the Healing Church (specifically the White Church, since the Black Church isn't known for its social graces and doesn't waste their Hunters' time by having them attend parties), but I suppose he could have built other relations if he was cautious enough.

The other thing that needs clarification is the "race" being (False) Paleblood. You aren't the first one to write that, and I see how it can be confusing, so just bear with me for a moment. I use Paleblood about naturally occurring, "true" Paleblood. False Paleblood is the artificial imitation of the former. (False) Paleblood is a shorthand way of referring to both of these collectively. Using (false) Paleblood might be correct if there was doubt which one he was (though it wouldn't make much sense initially, when he'll (probably) still just think that he's an "ordinary" Hunter), but I would like it specified for your characters.
So long story short, please put the race as either Paleblood or false Paleblood.

Beyond that I don't think I have anything to interject.


Ack I knew there was something I probably got wrong, RPs with this much information always get something left out, went ahead and changed the False Paleblood, my apologies.

As for his social tendencies? Yarrow attended parties in order to gather worldly experience, and likely didn't care who was throwing the party; whether the church, aristocrats, or average citizens threw the party, he wouldn't have cared. Yarrow probably doesn't even remember a majority of the people he talks to at the parties. He could be best friends with someone at one party and the next day not even remember their name. He hasn't had genuine connection with other humans since he returned to Yarnham, and probably will have a hard time forming relationships. As alluded to his personality section, he cares little for social convention as well, and probably offended more people than he befriended. Speaking of his personality section, he'd likely have a lot of animosity with the church as he despises people who keep secrets, and it's obvious the church keeps a lot of them.

Edit: I would've elaborated upon that more in the character sheet but I felt I was already over-writing it xD
Edit x2 - Electric Boogaloo: I noticed in your edit that you mentioned that he became a hunter for profit, not treating a disease. I would like to point out that he did indeed originally take blood some years prior because of a bloodborne disease, though this one much more mundane, because he contracted it from his foreign lover. (What it was specifically, and who his lover were are unimportant for the roleplay, they're meant to remain a permanent mystery for the character, as who shares all their secrets in gothic horror anywho?)

It's quite all right, it was more for what impact it could possibly have on how others reacted to him... but it seems like pretty much any socialite in Yharnam might have a chance of being familiar and/or acquainted with Yarrow. I will keep that in mind for future encounters.

Anyway, I see no reason not to accept your character anymore. I'll go ahead and add it to the list in the OP, and you are free to introduce Yarrow IC at your leisure.

The conditions for his awakening will be thus: he will awaken in the room described in the very first IC post (either on a cot or sprawled on the floor, your choice), only the room appears to have recently been used as a battlefield. Several dead bodies lie among the hibernating people, including a "large huntsman" (enemy type taken straight from the game) with a broken neck. Cots (possibly including Yarrow's own) have been knocked over, blood and intestines have been scattered over a portion of the room, and the single door has been smashed to bits. He will also be hearing voices beyond that door.
And, of course, he will be seeing crowds of Messengers surrounding the sleeping Hunters, including a small crowd curiously examining himself.

Posted! I'm probably going to go back and rewrite some parts cause it's been ages since I have been able to write this much and I'm sure my quality has suffered.

Very good. I also can't help but notice how gender-neutral pronouns are consistently used about Yarrow's lover. Hmm...

Are they a he? A she? Neither? Both? I'll never give definitive proof.

Edit: Also My first Bloodborne build was Skilltinge haha. I made my friend help me steamroll my way to the Bowblade. I actually have never finished the game myself but know everything about it.

I once more draw breath!

I must be starting to sound like a broken record by this point, but I must apologize for vanishing again despite promising a post. I uh... I'm gonna try not to say anything for certain until I've already posted. However my intent is to try to sit down and get something done after the upcoming Marcus post. I guess at this point it goes without saying you probably shouldn't wait for me if I don't deliver on that...

In other news, I'm glad to see the rp's still going after a year. Surviving in spite of my seeming inability to post more than once or twice a month... Here's hoping it continues to soldier on into the next~!

I am starting to discover that relationship early in development hinders my ability to keep promises regarding posting times.

Anyway, a post is up.

'"A screaming man.” He said, referring to The Screaming Man.'

I choked on my water reading this.
