@Dead Cruiser I'll see what I can come up with. Probably won't go that extreme, but perhaps a middle ground that can appeal to both of us.
OK, I'm just gonna throw down what I have for now just to make sure I'm on the right track before I commit too hard.




Well I guess I was more worried about how creative I can be with the magic system. It feels like we've been given all but free reign there but I didn't want to assume.
Without a concrete example yet, I feel the need to ask rather than what is allowed, what ISN'T allowed in terms of how creative can we get here?
Still here.
FIRST!


Name: Wolfram Melusina



Age: 16

Grade: Sir Clausewitz' School for the Militarily Minded, 2nd Year

Biography: Wolf is the son of a retired soldier and a demon hunter. With his parents being so serious and at times strict, Wolf was... a little on the meek side. The combined pressure was simply too much. After time away from their professions and years spent as his parents, the two slowly eased up, realizing to some degree how overbearing they'd been, but the damage was done. They were not bad parents, nor abusive, but, well, nearly every parent tends to mess up their child in one way or another. On the bright side, it was hard to find a more responsible, well-mannered child than Wolf.

In his early schooling years, he met two people who would shape the rest of his life, perhaps more than his parents ever could have. Two girls, one name Vera, and the other named Alexandria. Vera was an extremely forward and confident girl, the daughter of well-off merchants. Alex was more like him, though notably more awkward and bit of a... dreamer.

He met Vera first, her family having been aided greatly in the past by Wolf's parents. Alex he met shortly after, realizing how similar their abilities were. They abilities both manifested psychically. When pooled, their powers could create entire illusory worlds for them to play in. They could even manifest these worlds enough for Vera to join them.

Of course, two quiet kids sitting in a corner conjuring imaginary friends tended to draw disparaging stares and negative attention, but Vera, despite having no powers to speak of, would defend them. So ardent was her defense of her friends that even those well practiced, for their age, with abilities would soon learn it wasn't worth the trouble or ear-ache.

For them, it was the perfect set-up. None seemed to enjoy their time more than when they were together. After all, how could one beat a world crafted just for them? But, as time passed, and Wolf's abilities grew, Alex struggled more and more to keep up. It soon became apparent just how much more gifted he was. Not once did he or Vera hold it against the girl, but Alex herself refused to fall behind. She pushed herself to play an equal role, insisting that Wolf help her with ever grander experiments and ideas.

Until one day something strange happened. Their imaginary world felt a little... too real, too far removed from where they'd begun, and too... different from what they'd intended. Before they could figure out what had happened, it all collapsed in spite of their efforts. In the moment, everything seemed fine, though the two were understandably spooked.

The next thing any of them knew, Alex stopped coming to school.

The girl could no longer wake up. Wolf's power's could not penetrate her mind to see what was occurring in her dreams. He could do nothing. In some ways, it felt like she was no longer there at all. In the end, she was taken away to be cared for, in the hopes one day she might wake up again.

Wolf was left behind, his mind filled with the thought that this was all because of him. He'd gone too far, he'd hurt her somehow, and then after all that he'd been too useless to fix it.

-And Time Passes-

No one is quite sure which god granted Wolf his abilities, but a display of them was enough to pique the interest of those running Sir Clausewitz'. His parents were shocked and a little worried when he insisted he apply there, especially considering his mental state in the months leading up to that moment. They told him how needlessly strict and trying the program at that institution was, saying that he was more than capable of enrolling at St. Laurel's, but this only furthered his resolve.

He wanted to put himself through their punishing regimen. Maybe he felt he deserved it, but more so he felt if he'd been better he wouldn't have hurt his friend. He felt he needed to be better so it never happened again. Once the school granted him admission, there was little his parents could do to stop him.

His first year was not pleasant. By comparison to most he performed poorly, but never so poorly that they could find a reason to expel him. He'd always miraculously scrape by. In some ways, this got him more attention than simply being an overachiever, for by the end of the year there was a secret betting pool to see if he'd survive the final tests and trials. True to form, just barely, he did.

With that, and neither cheers nor complaints, he prepared himself for another year.

Powers:
Core: Psychic Warp
He can create psychic "bubbles" brimming with potential energy. He can simply let one collapse catastrophically to attack those nearby it, or he can choose to shape that energy. The bubbles are not terribly mobile, however. He can move them, but it takes time. That said, it is not inherently dangerous if one passes into a bubble, and generally they can just as easily walk back out... unless he decides otherwise. An unwary opponent can find a bubble forming around them very quickly if they don't watch their step. Being in the center of a collapsing psychic bubble is... not pleasant.

Currently he can maintain up to three bubbles at a time.

Ability 1: Formation
There are two ways the energy in the bubbles can be used. One is to turn it into a "room" of sorts, where the world inside is different from that of outside. Those outside the bubble will not be aware of what transpires within it. The other is the reshape the whole bubble into its own, semi-autonomous entity. These entities will follow his orders, but he does not have to directly puppeteer them, rather, their potential is tied to his subconscious. He simply has to give a command and the entity will do its best to carry it out.

Currently, he can control only one autonomous entity.

Ability 2: Intrusion
He can hijack other people's psychic abilities. If they have created an illusory space, he can enter and modify it should he manage to overpower the original user. Can also be “reversed” creating a manifestation of a target's mind for Wolf to explore. Changes made to this manifestation will be reflected in the target's mind. The latter affect will work on anyone, psychic powers or not, so long as they don't have a way to resist. For example, he could make someone feel like they're falling, inducing intense vertigo.

A byproduct of this ability allows him to, instead of competing with others psychic abilities, reinforce them.

Only open if you don't want to be surprised later.

Relationships:
Vera Goh: Childhood friend and current girlfriend. After they lost Alex, the relationship became... rocky.
Alexandria Sova: Childhood friend and source of all his guilt and self-loathing. Also the source of his motivation to improve himself.




Name: Vera Goh



Age: 17

Grade: Lady Deva's Prepatory School, 2nd year.
(A private all girl's school for those, for one reason or another, unwilling, unlikely, or just unable to participate in combat or the arena. She did apply for St. Laurel's, but was rejected due to not fitting into any of their programs despite having good grades.)

Biography:
The daughter of merchants, in many ways she is a typical rich kid. Her value of money is heavily skewed and she spends it as easily as she breathes, and with just as little thought or consideration. She is not terribly friendly to most she meets. She has long since stopped seeking the friendship and acquaintance of others. For anyone who earns her ire, a verbal beat down is just around the corner, and she's indiscriminate with her victims.

There was, however, one debt that her parents could not pay with simple money. Their lives, and business, were saved by a duo of warriors shortly before Vera was born. The two went above and beyond, but in the end didn't seek payment. They had simply been doing their job. Years later, in a chance meeting, Vera's parents once more insisted they pay the two back somehow. Finally, a way to pay their debt was presented.

They wanted their children to meet. At that age, Vera had yet to be spoiled completely rotten and so got along with the boy, Wolfram, well enough. So, to see to it that the debt was well and truly put to rest, instead of putting Vera into the most prodigious, expensive private school they could find, they allowed her to be enrolled at the same school as Wolf.

There the two met a girl, Alexandria, and friendships were well and truly cemented. With no powers of her own manifesting, Vera was fascinated by the psychic abilities of the two; their ability to seemingly craft entire worlds for them to frolic in. These moments were precious to her. There was no such warmth to be found back at home, for her parents were always too busy -- too distracted for her.

Anyone who dared step in the way would be in for a rude awakening. These two were hers, and no one else could touch them. Anyone who sought to tarnish was she had found would be torn apart with words until they were a quivering, sobbing mess on the ground, pondering what cruel fate had led them to being born.

For those too thick skinned for a verbal flaying, well, Vera was not afraid to spend every other afternoon in detention for leaving them black and blue. She learned how to fight beyond simple self-defense just so that her friends wouldn't have to dirty their hands protecting themselves -- so that she could keep up with those more gifted than her. So that her friends need only worry about crafting more of those precious, special moments she craved.

In a way, it was greedy of her, but they never seemed to mind. It wasn't like it was all just for her.

Then, one day, abruptly, it ended. Alex was gone. No one could say why or how, but she simply wouldn't wake up.

Wolf blamed himself, and it was the only answer ever offered, so she blamed him too. Yet, ironically, he was all she had left, so she clung to him tighter than ever. If he left too, she'd be all alone.

If he left... she couldn't punish him.

Powers:
Core: Subject of the Goddess of Love
Every year, dozens of newborns are chosen by the Goddess of Love. Instead of being granted the power to fight, or anything else practical, they are instead puppeted around in the midst of an ever ongoing soap opera for the Goddess's own amusement. Their every action is not spoken for, but when it comes to love and relationships, they will be hit by strong compulsions to guide them on a predetermined path.

That's it.

Relationships:
Wolfram Melusina: Her childhood friend. At first, pushed upon her by her parents, but now the only one she cares for. This sort of twisted co-dependence eventually led them to start dating, though he wasn't her first choice.
Alexandria Sova: Her dearly missed childhood friend. If Vera comes across as bitter, Alex is half the reason why.
Simon is basically a perfect example of an Inheritor. A simple warrior that is able to tap into empowering metaphysical energies through willpower and enlightenment. In general, if the "endgame character" analogy isn't doing it for you, feel free to think of your characters as "anime protagonist in the last fight in the last episode with the OP playing behind them."

The Anti-Spiral is also a pretty good example of what you all would be up against.


. . . but are we literally talking throwing galaxies like frisbees scale for this RP? Because that's just a bit much. Like it's fun to watch in an anime once in a while, but... it's all a bit too incomprehensible.
I am intrigued. This sounds like chaos and madness... but like on purpose so it's OK.
