(Hi there! You could say that I have returned from a long slumber but… Really that’s not the case… Anyway, this is the idea for an RP that I have had for a while but I just haven’t had the time to be able to do it, so I hope you’re interested)

The Academy of the Hunter is a top secret organisation, they train young people from the ages of 14 up to 22 to become a hunter. The academy itself is located inside of a dormant volcano in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and is a huge facility, containing dormitories for the students, classrooms and a whole kind of city with shops and entertainment features. The academy is run by “The Headmaster” who is said to be the oldest and greatest Hunter who has ever lived, no one knows his age, just that he is incredibly strong willed, skilled and very calm.

A Hunter’s job is to defeat anything that will pose a threat to the human race or the planet itself, this includes evil humans, beasts, demons etc.

The students are specially chosen by The Headmaster who looks for different things in a young person, he looks for skill, strength, and intelligence and picks the students based on them. There are the positives of becoming a hunter for the students and earning credits (Money) for how well they perform, however, they have to leave their old lives behind and live off the radar for the rest of their lives in the Academy.

When students arrive at the Academy they are asked to fill out a questionnaire, which asks personal questions as well as the two questions that students will look forward to the most, what weapon type would the student prefer and the style of the weapon. (One - Handed, Two - Handed, Dual Wield etc.)

The students then get to design and name their weapons as well as choosing the clothing they would like to wear for free. After this, the weapon designing and naming will become incredibly expensive and the students will have to pay for their clothing.

The Academy has four main classes:

Movement - This class focuses on the speed, agility and reaction times of the students, helping them to become a quicker opponent on a battlefield.

Theory: Theory lessons go over the theory of everything a hunter needs to know, such as different kinds of beasts and demons and how to see a threat among many other things.

The Dojo - The Dojo is a lesson where the students can hone their attacking abilities and practice their skills with their personalised weapons, robots are used for the practice, however duals are common between students.

Defence - This is exactly what it sounds like, the defence lesson teaches the students ways in which to defend against the many different threats, such as guns and different demons and beast attacks. (Hunters do not use weapons, that is tradition)

The students earn their credits by turning up to classes and performing well in these classes, if rules are broken the student will lose some credits as a punishment. There are two lessons per day, the rest of the day the students can relax and do what they want.

The Academy has its dormitories on the very bottom floor, splitting the different year students apart. Four students stay in a room together, usually two males and two females. They all have their own key card to be able to get into their rooms. The second floor up is where the classrooms are and on the third floor the relaxation area with its shops and entertainment areas in a large atrium dome. The Headmaster has his office on the floor above that with the hangar, where their specially made helicopter are stored so Hunters going on Missions can get out of the facility.

You will play the roles of students in their second years at the academy aged 16-18 years of age.

Your character sheet should look like this:

Name: (Whatever your characters first and last name is, can include a nickname)
Age: (Self explained XD)
Gender: (Male or Female)
Appearance: (The overall appearance of your character as well as their height, size, what they wear and any accessories they may have)
Weapon Type and Style: (What weapon you have and how your character uses it, one hand, two hand, dual wield etc. Bows are allowed, you should also give the name and appearance of the weapon here)
Personality: (What your character is like)
Bio: (Your characters backstory, make it as creative as you like)

I will post my character sheet soon.

Name: Arc Light

Age: 16
Gender: Male

Appearance:  Fair skinned, Black hair swept to the right, grey eyes, very attractive, about 5’10 in height, toned body, wears a black long sleeved shirt with small red patterns along some parts and black trousers and shoes.

Weapon Type and Style: Weapon name is “Bloodfang” Dual wield Swords. The hilts of both swords are black, the guard of the sword looks like the design of lightning, the blade itself is black and the point is extremely sharp, it emits a red aura around the blade. The sheathes are black with red patterns.

Personality: Arc very much likes to keep to himself, he is very friendly however and is very much into becoming a hunter as it is the only thing he really has left. His roommates (That can be any of your characters) are his real best friends and are really the only people he talks to properly.

Bio: Arc had a very difficult early life, he was born into a family of, let’s just say not very nice people. His mother and father didn’t give him much attention and most of the things he learnt about the world were by him going out himself and learning that way, he did this from the age of 6. At school he was always bullied because he wasn’t great at much, and because he didn’t do too well, his mother and father started to talk about giving him away to a foster home or to another family. At the age of 14, a hunter raided their home and killed his mother and father, the hunter said they were a threat to the human race and took Arc to the Academy, where The Headmaster deemed him perfect to become a hunter. He named his swords “Bloodfang” purely because he tried to think of a cool name and from then on, worked hard and met with his friends.

Name: Jesse ‘JJ’ Joy

Age: 16

Gender: Male

Appearance: Jesse has a mild skin tone and rather skinny appearance. He doesn’t have a muscular frame, appearing more like a stick but is relatively stronger than he would first appear. Around 5’9” in height, Jesse doesn’t appear much like a threat but appears rather startling with ice-blue eyes that seem to pierce you. He has white ‘scene’ hair that is spiked in certain places. He commonly wears clothing classed from the punk-rock genre.

Weapon Type and Style: Jesse’s weapon choice is typically two kamas: two small, what appear to be like, mini-scythes. These twin weapons are typically called “Devil’s Reap” and not by his choice. The shaft was delicately sculpted from ebony wood with small red wisps of smoke spiralling around the grip down to the baton end. The rivet is a deep crimson that splashes down and fades back to the curved, black blade. The back has ‘cracked’ crimson markings that lead down to the tip and along the edge, spilling up faintly onto the blade ridge. This is the same for both kamas.

Personality: As much as his surname would hint, Jesse does not seem like a joyful person on first glance. His face is usually blank and his voice is cold and calculating which plays along with a bluntly sarcastic nature. However, Jesse seems strangely intelligent and can smile (though usually small) when and if he wants to. He has trust issues and takes awhile to warm up to people - naturally.

Name: Ayaka Miyazawa “Sakura”

Age: 16

Gender: Female

Appearance: Light fair skin, long pale pink hair, blue eyes, slim figure, above-average strength, about 5’5” in height, wears a white and pink long sleeved cloak with white knee-high boots.

Weapon Type and Style: “Purity” - a two hand Katana sword. This sword has the appearance of a traditional Japanese Katana but has been modified by Ayaka herself to help her in battle. It was handed down by her father on her 12th birthday to which she has mastered ever since. She named her Katana “Purity” because her father told her he believed it could purify evil.

Personality: Ayaka is a kind and loving person. She would do anything to keep her close friends safe. She is usually a very happy and joyful individual but most of the time it’s just a disguise to hide her struggles from the past.

Biography: Ayaka Miyazawa grew up in Kyoto, Japan with her mother and father (her mother was from the UK, her father was from Osaka). Ayaka’s father was a martial arts teacher. He started teaching her martial arts at the age of 12 when he handed down his Katana, “Purity”. When Ayaka was 15, she lost both of her parents due to a beast intruding their home; she lacked the skill to defeat it. On her 16th birthday she left home to go to the Academy Of The Hunter to where she aimed to become stronger and get justice for her parents.

Ah sorry I took forever guys XD

Name: Dimitri Haves
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Appearance: Short curly dark brown hair and hazel eyes. Very tall at 6’2 with a runner’s body and a perpetual cocky smirk. Usually wears thick black jeans, black shit kickers and a black leather jacket over a bright orange shirt. His accent can’t quite be placed; it’s a combination of the world.
Weapon type and style: Two short swords - Karma and Agony paralyze with pain if they pierce the skin, dual wielded. http://www.hiwtc.com/photo/products/18/00/05/563.jpg A sheathed dagger up his left sleeve to spare. Has been known to make a weapon of anything close by.
Personality: Usually a little cocky, very confident and self-assured. Dimitri will never back down from a fight, and is always trying to charm. He’s erratic at times and has been called bipolar more than once. Though he’s not exactly jumping for joy at the thought of leaving his mild craziness behind. He’s extremely intelligent behind his mask of sass, though his memory is more than a little lacking.
Bio: Dimitri was born in Essex but was sent to boarding school in Colorado at the age of eleven. Three years later he was moved to a school in Germany, then every few months it had been a different country - Russia, New Zealand, Japan, South Africa, Australia, Greece, Egypt, Italy… in all that time he never saw his parents until he was sent home - then he saw their three-year old graves. That was when he received a summoning to the Acadamy. He didn’t even see who had delivered it. The summoning detailed the reasoning for his wodely international education; essentially, he could not be left to dig himself into a rut. Constant movement, uncertainty, these were things somebody like him needed - somebody like him, a potential Hunter. He was dangerous to himself, to anybody around him, when he was angry. It was a fact; he knew it and apparently sodid the Academy. With no family to leave behind, and a small fortune and an estate recently inherited into his name, Dimitri packed his things and left for the Academy of the Hunter. He never looked back.

(Alright it seems like everyone is here, let’s get this going then, we are all in the same dorm in the morning)

Arc stared at the ceiling of the room, he had been awake for a while now, just staring at the ceiling. Now, he sighed and sat up, pushing the covers off of himself. He didn’t wear a shirt for bed, but he did wear his sweat pants, even though they had grown accustomed to seeing each other in their underwear, being in the same room for a year, it’s hard to avoid that kind of stuff. He turned his head to the left, his bed was the farthest away from the door, Dimitri’s was next to his, then ayaka’s, then JJ’s. Arc pulled himself out of bed and scraped his feet along to the dresser opposite his bed, each person had a dresser where they kept their clothes, as well as a locker on the far right of the room where they kept their weapons.

Dimitri knew by the rustle of sheets in the next bed over, Arc’s bed, that it was time to get up. He’d had a restless night and wasn’t in any mood to get out of bed at all, but rolled over anyway and opened his eyes blearily.
“That time already?” he mumbled, squinting against the sunlight.

Arc nodded slightly as he pulled out his usual clothes, full black with red decals and a jacket, also with red decals, “Well no, we have two hours until then, I just couldn’t get sleep,” he moaned as he pulled on his clothes, they suited him perfectly especially with his black hair and grey eyes. “Besides it’s not all that bad, our first class of the year is the dojo, should be good,” he said placing his sweat pants into the dresser and closing it up.

Dimitri nodded and rolled over again, this time placing his feet on the cold floor and bringing himself to his feet. He padded over to his dresser and pulled the shirt over his head before climbing into the rest of his clothes. Finally he snapped his swords onto his back and ran his fingers through his hair. “To breakfast,” Dimitri smirked jokingly before heading out.

“Alright, before you go shall we meet at the usual cafe? You know the one next to the theatre?,” Arc asked Dimitri as he sheathed his swords, “Bloodfang” crossed over each other onto his back. The jacket he wore was long, the back of it reaching his knees. He turned to the door and Dimitri, brushing his hair to the right and sliding on his shoes.

Ayaka awoke to two familiar voices. She groaned and opened her eyes. She wasn’t in the greatest of moods due to a lack of sleep. Ayaka stared at the ceiling before slowly sitting up and rubbing the sleep from her eyes. “Hey, where are you guys going?” she asked the boys in a confused tone. “What time is it?”

“It’s 7 in the morning, Dimitri is heading to the cafe now,” Arc nodded towards Dimitri, then turned to Ayaka and shrugged, “We have two hours until the dojo class, first class of the year so take your time,” he smiled, then sat at the table that had four comfy chairs surrounding it, he was going to leave when Ayaka and JJ were ready, he never liked wandering the halls of the academy alone, unless Dimitri asked to go with him, he would stay. Arc sighed as he sat in the chair and pulled out his standard issue academy smart phone.
