    For some reason my old thread for this is locked, but I am taking character applications so feel free to apply!

    Main story: http://age-of-aincrad.com/forum/threads/virtual-reality-chapter-8-released-aoa-fanfic.2345/

    A little overview is that the game "Age of Aincrad" finally releases and (as you probably assumed) people get trapped in the game. The device used will be called a Nervegear just to make life a bit more simple. Weapons involved are as follows:

    -1h Straight Sword (Long Sword, Short Sword, Basket-hilt Swords, etc.)

    -1h Curved Sword (Scimitar, Cutlass, Pulwar, etc.)

    -2h Sword (Claymore, Nodachi, Bastard Sword, etc.)

    -Katana

    -Rapier

    -1h Bludgeon Weapon (Morning Star, Flanged Mace, Horseman's Pick, etc.)

    -2h Bludgeon Weapon (Warhammer, Sledgehammer, etc.)

    -1h Axe (Battleaxe, Long-bearded Axe, Dane Axe, etc.)

    -2h Axe (Labrys, War Axe, etc.)

    -Scythe

    -Staves

    -1h Polearm (Short spear, Poleaxe)

    -2h Polearm (Halberd, Long spear, Glaive, etc.)

    -Dagger/Knife (Sickles, Kris, Dagger, Kukri, Sai, Karambit, etc.)

    -Fist Weapon (Fists, Gauntlets, Battlefans, Push daggers, Katars)

    RULES:
    1. NO UNIQUE ABILITIES
    2. NO RANGED WEAPONRY
    3. Please give a detailed description and don't contradict your character
    4. If you want a specific guild for your character to be a part of then right it down, if you don't really care but you know you want them in a guild right down "Bounty Hunting Guild, Frontliner Guild, etc.)
    5. Pictures aren't necessary but help a lot.
    6. NO MAGIC

    Hey! I know I made an application before but I decided to take another try at it and make a character that wasn't so one-sided, lemme know what you think.

    Cillin

    Basic
    IRL Name:
    Alex Grayson

    Age:
    19

    Gender:
    Male

    Ethical/Moral Alignment (see Wikipedia and this site for more information):
    Chaotic Good

    Physical Appearance
    Height:
    6'4"

    Weight/Body type:
    Slightly muscular but mainly a slender tall build.

    Hair style:
    Messy hairstyle that's "spiked" but still loose (hair stands up in the front is what I mean by spiked)

    Hair colour:
    Brown

    Eye colour:
    Brown

    Facial features:
    Somewhat small eyes, fairly tight lips that are often locked into a smirk of some sort.

    Voice (pitch, grit, accent, etc):
    Slightly lower tone with a slight southern U.S. accent

    Other body features and appearance details:
    Nothing outstanding

    Clothes:
    When not in battle a basic vest with a white button up shirt underneath.

    Character
    Basic attitude and Personality (be elaborate, this is the most important part!):
    Cillin is for the most part fun loving and outgoing and always wants to be the best dressed at any function. If there's a gathering of some sort he would love to be at the center of attention. At the same time once he's achieved this attention he either thrives in it or thinks too much of it and begins to wonder if he looks alright and if he will be judged. This leads to one of his major flaws, he believes he's an extremely attractive person but at times doubts in himself so much that it can be crippling, but never in front of others. His other major flaw being that he takes criticism badly in the sense that he's extremely sensitive to it. At the same time, this isn't a self-confidence that makes him a jerk and try to show off to everyone, more of just a casual thing. Cillin also makes sure that everyone is involved because he once felt what it was like to be left out of a group IRL and knows how devastating it can be.

    TL;DR: Cillin is fun loving and outgoing when at the center of TBKOA social matters but has a sensitive side that pertains to him taking criticism harshly and his appearance being bad that many don't see.

    Likes:
    Friends, casual sports, parties, having a good time, looking good

    Dislikes:
    Being alone, looking bad, "high and mighty" players/people

    Quirks:
    He loves to tell jokes but good ones are few and far between. He also has extreme stage fright IRL but doesn't seem to experience this as much in-game.

    Attitude towards player killing and PK's:
    Always against PK

    Combat
    Weapon:
    Basket hilt sword

    Armour type (Light/Medium/Heavy):
    Light

    Armour description:
    A simple breastplate that covers the upper portion of his chest, as well as greaves and shin guards (all metal)

    Fighting style:
    When fighting he tries to figure out the distance of an opponents reach and remains just outside of that point until an opening is created that he can quickly exploit. His favorite thing to do is look cool while fighting, maybe even fluid at times with his rapier. (If that would take too much attention, don't worry about it, not a major thing)

    Signature move (If applicable):
    Player made - feints to one side and quickly spins to attack the now open side as the enemy attempts to block the feint
    or uses his greaves to block and move a weapon aside to create an opening

    Skills
    General build (fighter/crafter/tracker/etc):
    Fighter

    Specific skills (optional):
    Speechcraft/Charisma(?)

    Social
    Solo/Guild:
    BKoA(?)

    Team player?:
    Yes, his favorite moments are combining with other players to create some type of combo attack in the most glorious fashion.

    Backstory and Misc:
    Fairly reserved at first in school, after hitting high school Alex began to branch out, his nerdy video game habits continued but a more popularity focused aspect of himself began to show. He began to join a few sports and talk to different social groups in school as well as participating in whatever clubs he could. He remained his nerdy self and continued to play video games whenever he had free time, and as soon as AoA released he jumped on the game. Of course once the game turned out to be a trap he realized that he'd be leaving behind his two sisters and parents and that he needed to fight to return to them.

    Other details
    None, feel free to change him however you want, I'd love to be a part of your story in some fashion and he definitely doesn't have to be attached to TBKOA if you want to use him in some other form. (i.e. maybe the guild hasn't been formed or some other circumstance)

    Very solid application, thanks!

    TBKOA won't be in the story, but I think your character could fit well into the current powerhouse guild, The Aincrad Vanguard, if that works with you!
