Mizo Takameshi UPDATE

Post by Mizo Takameshi on Sun Jul 06, 2014 3:16 am

NAME: Mizo Takameshi

AGE: 17

CLASS: Junior

APPEARANCE: Black medium length hair, hazel eye in his right eye and a milky white in the left, with a scar over it. Light frame with a medium build, around 5 foot 6. When not wearing the familiar Yamaku uniform he can be found wearing jeans and wacky, pop culture themed t-shirts with his favorite pair of black and white checkered slip-on sneakers.

BACKSTORY:
Pre-seizure:
Growing up in a small town you'd think there wouldn't be much to worry about, but even from a young age Mizo was always rather shy. This kept him from doing things other kids his age were, such as catching bugs at the near by park as a child all the way up to various social events like school festivals when he got older. This was troublesome as it got him in trouble on occasion when he would try to duck out on after school cleaning duties.

Things might have gotten better if he'd had proper encouragement from his parents to come out of his shell, but with the both of them working a lot they never really seemed to have the extra time. This isn't to say they were neglectful, or uncaring, they just never seemed to have the extra time to provide the extra encouragement the he needed at an early age. Mizo felt alienated by his own parents for a long time. Around the time he turned 12 those feelings of being left alone and forgotten turned in to anger, and that anger in turn into resentment. Now as things stand he prefers to have the relationship with his parents that it's clear (at least to him) that they wanted, none.

His shyness seemed to be especially problematic when he was in grade 7, but that was only because he had his first crush and it hit him hard. Her name was Ayano Shibasaki. Mizo didn't really know how to tell her how he felt and that frustrated him. This frustration led him to withdraw further only making things worse. The situation eventually resolved itself, at least to a degree. Near the middle of the year Ayano's father was relocated for his job and as such she had to move schools. Mizo had missed his chance, something that he still regrets.

When everything Changed:
All of his past problems would soon seem trivial compared to the event that would change things drastically for Mizo. He'd been feeling sort of off all day on the day in question. His head felt...weird would be the only way he was able to later explain it. He'd been sitting in the park near his house reading, the next thing he could remember was waking up in a hospital bed.

Mizo was confused, he had no idea at first where he was or how he'd gotten there, and every fiber of his being ached. Once he'd had a chance to rest the doctors explained to him and his parents that he had suffered from a major seizure. He was told been rushed to the hospital when some one had seen him convulsing on the ground in the park and called the paramedics.
After they had run some tests the Doctors concluded that it had been caused by epilepsy and that Mizo was at about the right age where it can sometimes manifest, in addition to the possibility of seizures it would also cause some short term memory problems.

Given the fact that Mizo now need more supervision that what he'd had given his recently developed condition, along with a recommendation from his doctor his parent agreed that the best course of action was to transfer him to Yamaku. Given the nature of the school Mizo was unsure how he felt about this idea. It really felt to him that his parents were just trying to sweep their broken son under a rug to be forgotten, it made him sad. Little did he know it would be one of the most beneficial experiences ( if not the most ) he would have in his life.

First Year at Yamaku & the Future:
It was a lot for Mizo to take in, new school, a serious medical condition, being so far from the home he'd always known. This all added to his frustration, and feelings of helplessness. Still, much happened in his first year at Yamaku. With a determination to overcome his shyness he was able to make a few friends. With help from his friends and the act of being more sociable he was able to over come his shyness.

Not all was good though. He was the victim of a hit and run accident that cost him sight in his left eye. The loss of his eye sight in one eye has messed up his depth perception, forcing him to give up on his hobby of building models.  The time he spent in the hospital recovering cause him to miss final exams, and his grades had already suffered enough that his only real option was to repeat his junior year. Still he's determined to make the best of the hand he's been dealt and keep moving forward

PERSONALITY: Even though he's overcome his shyness he's still rather quiet. He's really a very nice person, but often comes across as weird and awkward. Mizo's come to realize that this may have been one of the qualities that's helped him make friends here at Yamaku where it drove people away at his old school. However to the few that know Mizo well enough to know the real him can tell you that he has a big heart and even bigger dreams.

Mizo cares deeply about the people around him even though most all of them have never known it. His sense of curiosity and wonderment is ever expanding due to how much he reads, and has flair for creativity. Mizo has however developed a new side to his personality a side of frustration...of anger and...of some confusion all brought on by his newly developed condition. This frustration has grown ever since he lost the use of his left eye. All in all Mizo is a good person, with his share of problems (but then again who doesn't?) who is just slightly misunderstood on occasion.

This profile is currently not compliant with the new standards that have been enacted for some time now. I understand the original was made prior to this, however, we're no respecters of persons here.

Personal Details: Fine.

Appearance: Devoid of physical details that would be useful to others. Frame, build, height, etc. Passable unless others share the opinion I do. I would try some to add detail here nonetheless.

Backstory:

Style: 5-7 sentences to a paragraph as a general rule. Otherwise, it's a figurative wall of text and cumbersome to read through. Also, as it is typed, you have little spacing between sentences, and that makes it even more of an inconvenience for us.

Grammar: You switch tenses at points toward the end abruptly, do try to keep the same tense throughout. "Knowing he could do better..." "At this point it feels kind of silly to him that he ever had a problem being around others." being the two examples that stand out.

Detail: It reads rather rushed and falls into the various pitfalls most profiles have, those being omitting or not elaborating on details that are important to the character's concept. We understand the emotions that are currently in play due to his conditions and introversion but, (unfortunately, if this is even unfortunate.) we expect people to develop reasoning for their feelings through how they got there. We're not going to assume. There's also a glaring transitory problem in between the lines here.

Code:
 "Due to his reclusive nature he took to model building and reading to pass his free time, but it was no real replacement for actual friends. When he was in grade 7 there was a girl in Mizo's class that he really liked, and the whole year he wanted to tell her how he felt, but again his shyness kept him from acting on that urge and he eventually missed that chance.One day while taking a walk near the local park he blacked out and woke up in the hospital."

I'd ask if you could lead up to the event in some manner. It's rather thrown in as it reads. Don't worry about how it came about unless another admin holds a doubt, the prevalence of unprovoked seizures are low, but are frequently warned about. Adding some details about how the character felt about all of these occurrences and elaborating more about the girl, his shyness and how he felt being so alone over time would help get this profile reapproved.

Personality: Fine.

It may be a bit of a bother having been accepted once before on much less to do. Requirements have changed and even re-approvals are subject to them. It is with good will that we've raised the standards overall. Bump the thread with an updated profile and we'll review it again.

Ok, I will have to put some thought into wording and condensing and then I'll post the updated profile. It may take a few days though due to work and general tiredness as such.

Ok, so didn't take as long as I thought. I'm sure there may be more that needs adjusting but this is a start. I broke the back story down in to three smaller sections via the spoiler tags so as to make sifting through the back story easier and re-wrote it to (hopefully) address the stated issues. Sorry if there are still some gaping holes, I should of done this when I was more awake and not when I was half tired from work and running on a half a redbull. Also thanks for the help with getting my profile sorted out. Oh and bump a da-bump

Personal Details: Fine.

Appearance: A few gripes. One of the times you spelled wearing was incorrect, written "wareing". Put a space between the comma after "wacky" and pop culture, and do not capitalize the P in pop culture. After this, fine.

Backstory:

Style: I suppose that solution to the wall is fine. There is a dangling sentence under the subheading "When Everything Changed" that might better be integrated with the rest of the paragraphs. Also, adding a line break after each complete paragraph helps stylistically. If you read the paragraphs again, you might see how it still reads lumped in. A line break will fix this, surely.

Grammar: Uncapitalize the following words: "Doctors", "Epilepsy"

Detail: Not much was written about early childhood, his life with his caregivers, or school before middle. If it truly is nondescript, just cover the topic and move on as planned. Another way would be just to write about early childhood and then skip along making note that little else has occured. With the way this has been written, this well might be enough to cover what you wanted to write and I'll accept the brevity of this profile.

Personality: Fine except for the following:

Style, Grammar: On second glance, please space after sentences and use line breaks. I'll point out a sentence that shows what I mean if it's not understood. "...of some confusion all brought on by his newly developed condition.This frustration has grown ever since he lost the use of his left eye.All in all Mizo is a good person, with his share of problems (buy [but] then again who doesn't?) who is just slightly misunderstood on occasion.

Also, the sentence before would look better if you either got rid of one or more of the ellipsis or if you'd like to keep the effect, remove the oxford comma between "of anger" & "and".

After this, if anyone of the administration team has another opinion, I've not much more to add from here. After these changes, I'll go on to approve it if it went well. You'll be subject to another pair of eyes from then on.

I hope I've fixed the problems stated above. Like I said I shouldn't of tried to fix it when I was so tired.
Also yes I am terrible about spacing, that is something I've been trying to work on.
Anyway I hope these fixes address the issues.






Also, BUMP!

Personal Details: Fine

Appearance: Fine

Backstory:

Style: "Things
(all of this space isn't what I meant and severs the sentence)
might of gotten better if he'd had proper encouragement from his parents to come out of his shell,..."

Personality: Fine, just bring the last line back closer to the rest of the paragraph.

I have few problems with the resubmission. I'd like you to confirm whether the seizure in "When Everything Changed" was a "tonic-clonic" (falling to the floor, convulsing) seizure or the rarer "absence" seizure. I can almost guarantee that it was a tonic-clonic, but both are symptoms of epilepsy. I'd also like something about his parents - they are mentioned merely in passing and genuinely seem like they don't give a crap about him, and simply want to throw money at the problem. Perhaps a paragraph about their involvement in his life and a few sentences on his feelings towards them and their apparent apathy towards him.

I expanded a bit in a couple of spots on his relationship with his parents, and defined what type of seizure. Hopefully it fixes the problem, if not I will work on it some more. also bump
