    Character Quote: The March Hare "I have an excellent idea! Let’s change the subject.”

    "No, I don't know where I'm going to college, and no, I don't care where you are going...wait, did I say that last part?...Look at the time! I gotta run!

    Name: Ethan Quinn

    Age: 17

    Gender(+Preferred pronoun): Male (he)

    Appearance: Semi-short and lankey, a bit undersized to say the least. Scruffy hair that his rather outward ears poke out from. Strung-out hazel eyes that are hidden as he keeps his head down more than not. Wears long-sleeved button-up shirts most often, usually a red plaid, but sometimes is a bit adventurous with color. Almost always wears black jeans.

    Description (Any other info): Recently started carrying a pocket watch, but doesn't really know why. Has memories associated with it that are incomplete.

    Personality (Optional): His on-stage and off-stage attitudes are starting to blend. He has always been the quiet, fly-by-night sort of guy, preferring the silent evening of reading in his father's study alone, or gaming with the few friends he's accumulated at school. But recently, he's found it hard to keep in his thoughts, as they spill out when he doesn't mean to say anything at all. And most concerning to his hormonally tossing attitudes is his sudden obsession with time. He hardly sleeps, noting the losses of it, but not grasping where it went. He's a brilliant chemistry nerd with a soft spot for literature and theater, but with little direction or aspiration.

    [Hey, sorry for the long wait. Those of us who are RPing in this, are kind of busy with studies and exams, so we decided to to start once that is over. So... It's going to take a while longer...]

    No worries. Next month is pretty busy anyways, but my December is open. Let me know when you think you'll be kicking off. I'm a moderator here, so I'll always be around. Take all the time you need.

    • 'I believe in the Universe was created. I believe that all Gods are One God. I believe that God has many Faces and Forms. I believe that nature is a sacred extension of God and that it should be protected and honored. I believe we are all from God and so we each have a piece of Him/Her inside of us. I believe magic is a neutral power that flows through every living being, that it only becomes good or evil depending on how we use it...and I believe in coffee every morning and midday.'

      Name: Sorcière Lawrence
      Age: 27
      Gender
      : Male
      Appearance
      : Tiny human man, under four feet tall, appears like a child only because he's so small, has a handsome brown face and longish curls, wears a long black coat over a pristine white shirt with a stiff collar, creased black dress pants, and glossy black loafers, has one gold ring with a black stone on his index finger.
      Description
      : This little man is more than he appears, even if the world constantly underestimates him. He has belief in magic, specifically in the Old Religion: he has a deep faith in the Old Gods, loves and respects nature, knows the uses of many herbs and crystals and stones, and has a powerful spirit that he calls Knocker, because it can hit or move solid objects. Knocker needs a day to recover after being asked for services, as well as an offering in the form of blood. For this reason, Sorcière Lawrence keeps a steel cannister of fresh blood inside his long coat, just in case there's an emergency and he needs to pour out some blood to feed his faithful spirit. He uses the strength of his will and the power of his emotions to create magic, which can b a problem at times. If he can't concentrate then the spell could have strange effects or even backfire against him. If his emotions are too weak then he can't use magic at all, but if he's feeling too strong then he could very well lose control of the magic and also cause untoward events to occur.That's why he only uses his personal power for special moments, or calls on his spirit Knocker for help, and prays daily to the Old Gods for strength. But to be quite honest, the powers of a common sorcerer don't amount to much: sure, they might have an invisible spirit friend, but they can't do much on their own other than making a cup fly across the room or open a locked door without a key. Lawrence had heard of something called a White Staff that can make a sorcerer five times as powerful, but he can't seem to get any information on how to find or make one. To be frank he's beginning to think it doesn't exist in the first place...
    • Personality: Even tempered, clever, ferocious when angered but mostly chill, only wears black or white clothes from overly expensive downtown fashion boutiques, and yes, he has made that a part of his personality.

    • 'I heard someone mention a White Staff? Oh, you just said white stag? Fuck dammit, I mean, excuse my language. Eh-hem. Have a nice day.' *walks away swiftly*

    (Btw the spirit Knocker is not a character so much as an entity that comes when he calls it and leaves directly after its task is completed, because it's drained lol. I hope that;s not an issue. <_< O_O >_>

    I mean, this is up to the RPG GM, but this character doesn't really seem to fit the genre or story. You may want to create a backup character that kind of goes with what's already in place. Of course, this is up to the GM for approval, but seems like a character for more of the high fantasy RPGs.

    I think he probably saw Hatter and Alice and thought this was Wonderland because I thought the same thing need to rewrite my character sheet in a jiffy.
