How you found OZ: I already knew? I've an history of being here from Naomi-Tani reign.
Expectations in OZ: To have fun. Just that really, I want mostly to relax.
Your Roleplaying Style: Okay, I'm trying to experiment a bit here. For example, In the profile I'm giving the view that other people have for Selia, rather go too deep inside her head with an overly detailed description of what she would do here and what there. It helps giving a good wriggle room when RPing and makes her more adaptable to many situation that a mod may present.
Reason for choosing [your] character: I'm affectionate to poor old, pragmatic Selia :3
Mod Preference: As long as they're not totally evil and dedicated to make people's life miserable, they're fine XD
Oracle Guide Color: I guess my old Cosmic Latte one is still there... can I keep it?
Difficulty Mode: Da best?
Comments: I said I'd lurk, so here I am. I'm not sure of how often I'll be on, but wanted to give the game a test and a bit of support to you guys.
Name: Selia Stark
Age: 20 years old
Birthdate: July 20th
Description: A somewhat cute, little thing...
Selia was a short girl with a frail-looking built, that somewhat reminded of a lady of old times.
Her face was thin, with high cheekbones and an hint of freckles on her nose. Her lips were thin, even more as she kept them pressed shut quite often, but lacked of that lovely rosy color that would match oh so well with a pale complexion such as hers. The dark eyes were a bit too much of a contrast against her skin and her disinterested gaze didn't help brighten up her face. Her hair were dark, straight and kept at shoulder length, sometimes in a ponytail.
Summer dressed fit her well, giving her a child-like look that clashed so much with her demeanor. Trousers and blouses were more appropriate in colder times and when she wanted a more formal approach with someone. She chose her clothing with enough care, though she didn't look interest in trends, and paid a lot of attention to what she would need to do with them, before choosing.
Personality: Always so full of herself!
People didn't like Selia that much, and that was a fact. She had always been such a closed, quiet kid, unwilling to look for other children's company. Teachers had tried to pry her out of her shell, but had earned disinterested shrugs or even temper tantrums if they got too insistent.
Once she was in the age for boyfriends, there was no one that would have willingly asked her out for a date: after all the time she's looked at them like they were transparent? Like she was a sort of queen or something? No way!
Her parents had always been concerned with her, but apart the fact she wasn't friend with anyone there was nothing they could find wrong with her. She helped with chores at homes, she did her homework from school, she was responsible and always brought a map with her if she had to go in a unknown are of the town. She had tried helping a small bird Pokemon recover after it had fell from its nest once and though the tiny had died after a few days, she had done her honest best for it. The woman could bring herself to think the girl was bad... she was just reserved, that's all. People were just too touchy with her.
Likes and Dislikes: Her reaction toward unneeded violence is an expression of distaste and flip pf the phone to call the police if it's something serious: she knows she's too weak to put up with a robber that seriously wants someone's purse, for example.
When people gets too pushy, or too concerned, or too curious she reacts with stubborn and annoyed indifference.
She wrinkles her nose in distaste at a 'junk' food preferring way more an home cooked meal. Especially when tasty and new... and if it involves a dessert made with bitter chocolate... and if there's coffee at the end.
She keeps in good terms with intelligent and polite people, who understand when to not drown her in small talk and chit-chat or questions about her life.
She has surprising patience with young-lings as long as they not scream, act spoiled.
Fears: When faced with unknown situations, or new development in situations she had thought she had under control, Selia presses her lips together and sometimes chews her bottom lips, looking for a solution or simply for her next move.
As many people, she frowns at the thought of death and carefully stray away from situations that look that may involve it.
Wishes: That people leave her alone and stop trying to save her from her 'inner lonely self'.
History: Selia was born in the outskirts of one of Kanto smallest cities, one of those sleepy, quiet places where everyone knows everyone else. During an uneventful childhood, her lonely nature prevented her from make many friends or distinguish herself for any particular talent she may have.
She had two uncles, both married but without children, and her parents. She hadn't siblings, and thus all the hopes and dreams of her family had always been put in her. Still, she was not loved in the town for her attitude: silent, lonely, looking as she was constantly bored by her surroundings, as if the world hadn't anything interesting to offer her. Her family was worried because of that, but trying to talk to her hadn't brought anything and her mother was friendly protective of the way the chose to live.
Therapists were simply not contemplated, they would have brought them the reputation to have a mentally sick daughter and Selia was going to have a fit if they ever tried to set something like that to her.
So she was left alone, passing most of her time indoors, reading or helping her parents within the house. Her book stock came from the local store (her town was simply too small to have a library). The books were most classics, best sellers or second-hand ones, to ensure quick sales: even in the middle of nowhere the dub 'sold millions of copies!' had its power.
For this reason, when, she came across an very old looking book on one of the shelves one day, Selia squinted at it and almost automatically went to pick it up. Who could have had such a volume in her neighborhood? It looked antique, more than old to be exact and she had heard antique books were quite precious.
Have you read the THE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO RULES:
If you mysteriously vanish, could OZ use your character as NPC? How long shall we wait, if yes?:
Have fun with her!
OZ has a beta CharCom or Character Community system where all approved characters are used as NPC in everyone's journeys. In this, your character may have different roles in someone's life in a character's journey. When your character is used, you would be paid royalties (depending on how major and how active the [your] character is). The timeline/universe won't be changed, which can affect joint journey processes. If you are unwilling on some points, you could compromise with us, like have a post involving your character be approved by you first and so on. You can ask us to limit your character as minor or static if you wished. If this idea totally doesn't appeal to you, you can flat out refuse. Write your answer below.
Have fun with her! Just... try to not kill or maim for life her or any of her Pokemon XD
