Before I begin, I'd just like to say that I'm not really used to forum role playing so I may stumble and screw things up to begin with and I apologize before hand. I read through a few other character sheets to try and get an idea of what's good and what isn't. pale

NAME: Dwight Haunkey
AGE: 17
CLASS: Junior

APPEARANCE: The profile image I have currently set is just a place holder for now, I will hand draw one at a later date even though I'm a terrible artist Razz
Standing 5'10" (177cm), pale skin, and half dazed green eyes, Dwight can usually be found wearing his standard brown running shoes, blue jeans, black leather jacket, plain grey t-shirt, flat cap, and square framed black glasses. With sideburns and a soul patch, he keeps all of his hair no more than a few inches long. He has button sized scars on the front and back of his left shoulder. With his right hand usually kept in his jacket pocket, his left is in a permanent sling. Dwight has a tendency to slouch and shuffle along.

BACK STORY: I would like to play a more mysterious in the background type of character but I understand the admins need a character back story at least present to show that I'm actually semi serious about playing, hence the spoiler box. I ask other role players besides the approval committee not read it, but alas I have no way of enforcing this. Honour system, please tongue
Spoiler:

PERSONALITY:
Dwight has no genuine friends so much as simply people simply tolerating his presence. Not for anything really being wrong with him, but Dwight fails to grasp the native tongue and thus is unable to really relate to anyone. He speaks a foreign tongue that select few of the faculty are able to understand him enough to understand but conversations are still disjointed making Dwight feel ostracised. He's in the mechanics and electronic engineering programs, but with different course material in a language he can understand. He does some after class work at the school such as room cleaning and general teachers help in order to reduce the cost of his stay at the academy. Not being a person of wealth or even a citizen here really takes a toll on him, but you have to do what you have to do. This, as well as his standard course load of maths, sciences, and arts, makes for little casual time for Dwight. It isn't like he has anyone to spend it with any ways... Dwight is behind in his main studies due to dropping out but is ahead of his age group in mechanics and electrical engineering due to his personal pursuits.

Dwight is able to communicate on a very basic level through a full year of pantomiming with most students, but it only gets him so far. He's able to identify most nouns around the school such as textbook, pencil, and the like but not enough to be able to construct full sentences. Coming from a more traditional family, Dwight becomes uneasy around feminine men or masculine women.

Dwight dislikes crowds as he feels he does not belong, being linguistically alone. In the event he needs to be where there is a crowd, he generally sticks to the outer edges.

Because of his arm, any hand to hand fighting techniques Dwight learned no longer work without the use of both arms. Often being paranoid of his surroundings because of the neighbourhood he grew up in, Dwight never goes out without his folding pocket knife. Although he has a great interest in firearms, Dwight does not own any, be it because of his lack of license or lack of funds.

Hey there, thanks for joining the forum! I'm afraid that the other admins and I are rather busy around the holidays, so it might take a little bit before we're able to take a look at your profile. Either way, as you may have noticed the forum's pretty much dead around this time of the year, so it doesn't really matter. We'll evaluate/approve your profile as soon as we can. Sorry for the inconvenience!

I don't see any glaring issues with your profile, although I am in a good mood, so one of the other mods may say differently.

You have approval 1 of 2.

I have a few concerns, actually. But firstly I'd like to apologise for the delay - we'd never usually leave it this long but Christmas hit me like a freight train this year. I hope you're still paying attention to this site - we always welcome a fresh face. We also have a profile guide to get people started - you mentioned you read through previous templates but that might be a bit more handy.

Firstly, the backstory starts off when the character is 15, with no mention of his previous life, parents, childhood friends, junior school or any of the important stuff like his interests growing up. We like to make a point of getting those down in a profile - we have a rule that you cannot simply pull information about a character's backstory out of nowhere. It MUST be in the backstory. For example, once we had a character who suddenly decided his dad was a welder which enabled him to cut open a door - nope. We need vital information like this. Flesh out his early life a bit, and then bump the thread.

Everything else is good, though. Just need to put in somewhere how long he's been at the academy.

Good luck.

Heya, back again. Sorry for the long delay, I just entirely forgot about this board while tending to my other group.

I read through the guide Subverse linked and changed a few things. I didn't realise Japanese schools are only 3 years so I went with Junior, I added info about the parents which also lead me to adding that Dwight's uneasy around non-gender role stereotypical people, a little more about his childhood and environment. I may revise it again in the next couple days, as I've been staring at it and my own paperwork for several hours today and it's all just starting to blend together as a mess of letters.
