I don’t care if you use a real person’s picture for your characters face claim. I still imagine them as cartoon characters anyway. :P

Bio

I’m Crimson Flame and I’m addicted to RPing. But sometimes ADHD kicks in, and it takes me longer to reply to things than it should. If I’m taking too long to respond, feel free to say something. Just don’t be rude about it.

There are a bunch of RPs I like. Pokémon, Digimon, Fantasy, Superhero, it would take too long to list them all. I’m not a fan of Horror or Apocalypse settings though.

I have a particular type of character I like making. Look through my Character Sheet thread, and see if you notice what a lot of my characters have in common.

It would be best for getting everyone's characters together and starting a plot together if they attended the summit. Whether they reserved tickets fair and square, or try to crash it, or just stumble into it, is up to you. You can start with a bit of "before the conference" story to introduce the character like I did, or you can go straight to your character entering the retreat center.


Ok. Now, I have to figure out a way to get Conner to the conference.

So, what should I be doing in my first post?
Name: Conner Waters



Appearance: Conner is tall and lean, standing at exactly six feet tall. He has slender well defined swimmers body that he is very happy to show off. He spends plenty of time out in the sun, and thus has a lightly tanned skin complexion. He has a boyish heart shaped face, with big brown eyes, and a small nose. He keeps his brunette hair spiked up in the front, a style he thinks is cool. He can most often be seen with a grin on his face.

As for clothing, even though Conner comes from a wealthy family, he doesn’t dress the part. He wears simple T-shirts and jeans all the time. He also likes to wear tight fitting tank tops to show off his physique at times. When it’s cold out, he’ll wear a light blue hoodie. Footwear consists of a reliable pair of blue and white sneakers, or sandals. He dresses for comfort more than for fashion. He does like the color blue, and incorporates that into his wardrobe.

Gender: Male

Age: 18

Occupation: Surfer/Surf Shop Employee

Plant Essence: Seaweed

Superpower(s): Conner has control over water. At the moment, he can only move small amounts of water, and can’t pull moisture from the air. Only control existing sources of water. He can splash people in the face with water from a water fountain. With time, his powers will grow.

Personality: Conner is a spontaneous and outgoing young man. He likes to have fun. His favorite activities are surfing, swimming, playing video games, and reading comic books. He enjoys socializing with others and being the center of attention. He is an handshaking, touching kind of guy. He openly expresses affection through hugs, holding hands, as well as stroking and grabbing shoulders. He particularly likes flirting with attractive guys. He makes friends easily, and will happily chat up strangers if they interest him somehow. He enjoys social situations, and believes that everyone else would too. He's likely to convince people who he perceives as being lonely to come along with things like 'come on, you'll enjoy it!' or 'you don't know what you're missing!' While he does need to spend time alone once in a while, he gets bored if he does it too long. He values all his relationships, and will happily stick with anyone he considers a friend.

He can often be found with a smile on his face, even during stressful situations. He often makes jokes, when the situation is tense to lift people's spirits. He may tease others in a 'playful' way, and expect them not to 'take it so seriously.' He does feel bad if somebody does actually get their feelings hurt by what he says. Sometimes his attempts at humor are read as him not taking the situation seriously. While he does joke around a lot, he is capable of getting things done. He just doesn't feel the need to be so dour about it. He often suggests that others not be so serious.

Conner enjoys showing off his skills for others in order to get praise. He is prone to bragging about the things he is good at. He does it in a 'look at this awesome thing I can do!' way, rather than an 'I'm better than you.' way.

He likes to live in the moment rather than dwelling on the past. This means Conner is not the best when it comes to organization, or planning. Due to his lack of planning ahead, it makes him impulsive, and he tends to jump into things without a second thought. He gets bored when he is not sufficiently stimulated, and will complain about being bored. He is also not the most tidy person. He does clean up his mess after the fact if it's pointed out to him, but he has trouble avoiding making a mess in the first place.

Growing up a member of a rich family that has high standards, and a seemingly perfect older sister has given him a number of insecurites. He’s always worried about not being good enough, and that he doesn’t belong anywhere. He feels like he has something to prove. He wants to have a purpose in life. He tries to hide his worries behind a mask of cheerfulness, but they’re always there. It manifests as envy torwards others he thinks are better than him.

History: Conner grew up in an upscale area. Comner was the youngest son of the wealthy and prominent Waters family. His parents were quite strict, and they had high standards for their kids. Conner had an older sister named Arianna, and she was the the apple of the family’s eye, at least it appeared that way to Conner. She was beautiful, talented, intelligent, and it felt like she could do no wrong. To him, it always seemed like anything he could do she could do better.

In his teenage years, Conner gave up trying to live up to the high standards set by his sister. He only did just well enough in school to get by, and spent a lot of time slacking off. He would often act up in class, and get himself into trouble. There were days where he would cut class to go to the beach and surf. Surfing was one of his favorite activities. It was definitely something Arianna wouldn’t do. He enjoyed the thrill and adrenaline high of catching a big wave. That, and he also flirting with the hot guys in swimsuits on the beach.

He continued coasting through life trying to have as much fun as possible. Even though his grades weren’t the best, he was rather popular with other students, and had a few close friends. His parents wished he would put more effort into his studies, and better represent his family name, but Conner didn’t really care to try. His sister was obviously the shining star of the family, so why did they need him for?

He managed to graduate with just good enough grades to pass. He continues working as an Employee at a local surf shop, and isn’t sure if he wants to go to college or for that matter, what he wants to do with the rest of his life.

Conner discovered his powers while surfing, naturally. He was able to move water when he was paddling out to sea. He had superpowers. He read about people having them, but never in his life did he think he’d get them too. That was something Arianna didn’t have. If she did, she didn’t tell anyone about them. While these powers are awesome for sure, but besides getting people wet, there wasn’t much he could do with them right now. So he kept them a secret until he had a better handle on what they could do.

Miscellaneous: He’s gay!

Corn dude: But I have to be covered in oil first
Corn's friend: No! You really don't!
Corn dude: Yesss I do :D *removes shirt*


Conner would enjoy that if he’s hot.
I’m interested because I haven’t done anything Digimon related in so long.

I know nothing about hacking though. Except it’s not as easy as TV shows and movies would have you believe.
I am a Florida man. I promise we’re not all crazy.
@LostButterfly92 Welcome friend, consider dandelion reserved until further notice. Nice to see someone pick a weed and curious about what you plan to do with it.

I'm gonna do a little worldbuilding now, so we can stay consistent as more people start putting characters together!

The plant or animal essence that bestows a power typically reveals itself as an image in a dream. The dream could happen before or after the powers emerge. The dream and powers usually happen within a couple weeks of each other, but sometimes a greater length of time passes for reasons unknown. (Or perhaps the person didn't realize the significance of the dream and had to be reminded multiple times, lol.) This helps people know and connect with their essence if it's not something obvious, like claws could come from a lot of different things.

@LuckyBlackCat This mostly keeps your backstory intact. A significant time could have passed without knowing the source of her powers, though it would be more of a mysterious "dream" than an objective "test" to finally find out. It also opens up a possibility for characters to not yet know what their essence is.

I'm thinking about setting this (at least to start) in Florida or Georgia, United States. Somewhere around that warm seaside area (for Conner) where you can drive an hour one way to a diverse progressive city and drive an hour the other way to "them animals better go home before open season starts."

EDIT: Bahaha, I just noticed Danielle's incredibly on-the-nose name. On top of Mr. Waters. I welcome the corniness. And would also welcome a corn character.


Is Seaweed not a weed?

I vote Florida, because I live there, and it’s nice having an RP take place in my home state.
I haven't decided on a power or character that's right for me, but here are some ideas free for the taking or for inspiration.

Clover/Shamrock: Brings good luck.
Jalapeno or Habenero: Body fluids contain capsaicin. Capable of spitting/spraying "pepper spray" naturally.
Nightshade: Body fluids contain potentially deadly poison and/or control over shadow/darkneess.
Thistle, Cactuses, other spikies: The hair on the person's body are sharp and "sticky". They may be launched similarly to tarantulas
Plants with burrs: May summon or produce burs which may be used to track and spy on targets through a mental link, and/or be used as spiky, thorn grenades.
Sunflower: Absords and releases solar energy.
Aloe: Body fluids contain a super healing ointment and/or healing touch.
Durian: Produces a horrible, unbearable stench.
Carrots: Enhanced/keen eyesight, but "carrot top" hair.
Peas: May mentally link with up to two other people while touching.
Tomatoes, Passion Fruit, and other aphrodisiacs: control and/or manipulation of emotions, hormones, or pheromones. May be graced with charm or good looks.
Watermelon: control/manipulation and/or production of water.
Pumpkin: Transformation into a monster with a Jack-o-lantern head.
Pomegranate: Blood magic and/or manipulation.
Pitcher plant: Able to dislocate jaw to consume large items. May digest anything.
Catnip: Attracts felines (including wildcats) and has limited command over them. (Attack, defend, stay, go, etc.)


Light based powers for Sunflowers were the other power I was considering.
