We are no longer accepting any people
A regular highschool located in modern day, 2013, Japan is having their classes now. There is a variety of people who are on the school. People who attend the after school sports like; Kendo, Baseball, Fencing, Basketball and many more. Or other after school activities like; Chess, Art and things like that. Aside from the many students there are also many teacher on the school. Next to the teachers there are other adults like the janitors, the school nurse and people who just randomly stop by the school to talk with a teacher or the principle about something.
However those people are not aware of what is coming to them. Not too far in the future the world will be struck by a deadly pandemic that turns humans into zombies after they have been bitten to dead by them. These zombies aren't the slow ones from your regular zombie movie. These zombies, who mostly are referred as "Them", actually are very strong, and almost seem to work together. They however are blind and react to sound.
This RP will be similar to Highschool of the Dead. You can play as someone who is at the school during the start of the pandemic, if you want to be someone outside the school you can do that, but it may take some time before you team up with the main group (I prefer to let everyone be from the highschool, and maybe if someone joins later in the story to be an outsider).
You can be anyone from the school. A student, teacher, janitor, nurse, principal or just a visitor (or anything else you can imagine). Our main goal will be to survive and try to find a safe place somewhere so we can stay alive (dunno where, but we'll find it).

- You can't make another character of the team die unless permission of that person is given.
- No god modding. You probably will be able to kill "them" easily, but don't think you suddenly have godly powers or anything. And becoming blocked by "them" sometimes will also make it more exciting.
- When you haven't replied in the OOC for five days (unless explained why) then your character will die a gruesome death.
- Since this is Highschool of the Dead you can be a bit pervy, and curse but try not to do it all the time and not to go that far.

Name: Aiko Enma
Personality: Aiko lives for the game of life, she is always excited to try the newest things that humanity has made and learn the latest tricks of her craft, which in respect is perfect for her job. She is a trickster at heart and always chooses to smile when things are at their worse, believing that if one is always sad then things will only get worse, though even she has her limits. Aiko is a natural charmer and entertainer, though her part time job asks this of her she always has been even since she was young, and if so she picks to talk things over other than outright fight. Because of this she is rather popular at school. She loves both her sisters to the very end, while also sharing a part of their interest in Manga and computer games.
History of all 3 girls: Life was a simple thing long ago for the three sisters, their perants would allow them to play in the small arcade as much as they wanted and they were well looked after, though for Junko it wasn't enough at the time she now regreats not thanking them alot more than she did. The day that the accident happened they were on holiday to the islands around Japan, their boat crashing into the rocks while the girls were being looekd after by Junko... When the news came about their perants only Aiko and Junko were old enough to understand, as Suki was still a baby at the time.
After being threatened with being put into a home, thanks to Aiko being too young and Junko being a trouble maker, the oldest of the three turned themselves around and took control of the arcade and assured that the three of them would not be broken up. As time passed the arcade became more and more popular, with all three girls heading the place they soon expanded into a mega arcade with a stage, a food/eating area and even a place for smaller kids to place in. Aiko was head of the entertainment where she conducted her art of magic, mostly on her sister Suki when she needed a assistant to be cut in half and so on, while also helping behind the bar at times. Junko was the manager and so had many jobs, but she most enjoyed being the barmaid and part time cook for the meals. Suki on the other hand was the allrounder that helped whenever her sisters needed it, and the pair are thankful for that.
Now though this new threat is trying to tear them apart... Its time to see iof they succeed or not.
*From her many shows she has unrivaled accuracy in knife throwing techniques
*She has mastered the art of slight of hand, allowing her to make very fast and unseen movements with her hands
*She is very cunning, as she has to outwit her customers with being able to change up the tricks on the go
Being in school at the time of the outbreak her current weapon are the knives from the school cafeteria

She is a spirited girl that lets nothing get in the way of her goals! Suki has a unrivaled love for video games and even plans on becoming a game designer when she is older, and all this is only fueled by the fact her family owns a mega arcade. Despite her other hobby the girl makes sure to keep active, and really enjoys little league baseball which she has joined the local city team and the school club. She loves her sisters until the end.
*Though small she knows a lot about computers hardware and software, after all a budding young game designer needs to know such things
*She may be young but in her team she is the main heavy hitter with a bat, though it barly rivals a grown mans swing unless she is swinging down
*She is small and cute, being able to get into places with ease and avoid danger

Name: Junko Enma
Personality: Junko is the oldest of the sisters and so was the one that had to take care of all of them when they were younger, not to mention also run the arcade in what time she had between that and school She is now one of the kindest women you can meet, if you are on her good side that is. She has been known to put people into hospital for disturbing Aiko's shows, and has a VERY scary look about her when mad. Junko is a Manga artist at heart and now that she is out of university and only running the arcade she can focus on her writing and art; she even released a light noval recently. She drinks rather alot, but thankfully she is a friendly drunk and of course she loves her sisters until the very end. A very big flirt with guys.
*Though apparently in her past Junko still keeps up with training her fists, and so she is a natural brawler
*Knows how to cook and drive
*Being able to break into cars and hotwire them was a must back in the day, and so was having a personal generator for the hideout. She can work engines and wires pretty well, though not a master

Name: Yoshirou Matsumoto
Personality: soft spoken, yet out going, Yoshirou does not try to impress anyone or to make friends, he just acts as himself.
History: Nothing interesting happened, Yoshirou lived an average life as a sophmore high school student. He attended classes, talked to other students and resepcted his elders, yadda yadda yah. He was always the helpful one in class, no one hated him, but no one ever was completely in love with him. Which was fine by him. As a kid, he always loved to play with things like legos, and as he got older, he loved to make things out of common house hold items, he was always creative with his projects, but they never were useful in day to day life, until now.
Abilities: a little above average intelligence, and is great at jerry-rigging.
Weapon: a wooden baseball bat taken from P.E class, stuffed with nine inch nails from workshop to make it a deadly yet light weight mace.
Other: tries to stay optimistic and always looks for the silver lining.
Name: Konno Tomohisa
Appearance: Konno is fairly average, standing at a height of 5'6. He has light brown eyes and dark brown hair cut down to his eyebrows. He weighs 140 Lbs and has a very athletic build. His skin is slightly tanned but nowhere near as much as someone who dedicates time to that sort of thing
Personality: Konno is a very kind guy, who likes helping out his friends. He can be shy, being heavily reluctant to speak with others unless he knows them or at least knows a bit about them. He is a very contemplative guy, who will often take time to reflect on his situation. However, when he is in a situation where his adrenaline is pumping, he becomes much more fierce and devotes his everything to victory, which can be a problem as he doesn't always know when to back down.
History: Konno's father was a former member of the Self Defense Force's 1st Airborne Brigade while his mother was a shopkeeper from a small town in Hokkaido. They raised him to be a very sharp young boy, with his father teaching him as much about firearms as was possible. Konno lived in Japan until age 8, when he was sent to study in America and live with his grandfather. Konno studied there until he was 14, as that was when his grandfather died. While in America, he expanded his knowledge of Firearms and learned some about how to wield knives. All of this was taught to him by a man who worked in his grandfather's hardware store, who had been in the U.S Army's 1st Infantry Division. Another thing Konno picked up in America was running, as he joined his school's Cross Country Team. When Konno returned to Japan, he though he could live his life normally, but he didn't get this chance. His father rejoined the Self Defense Force, and left Konno alone with his mother. So, when Konno was able to pass the Entrance Exam for this school, he was only too happy to hear that most of his father's pay was spent on expenses for Konno to go to this school.
Abilities: Intelligent, Fast
Weapon: Guns, Knives to a lesser degree
Name: Noriko Fujimura
Appearance:SpoilerShe usually keeps her hair in a ponytail.
Personality: Noriko is a very quiet woman, almost never saying anything unnecessary. She is very self-centered; she will do anything that is to her advantage. She will stay in a group as long as she finds it advantageous, then leave when it is no longer. She doesn't need anyone else, and would be able to survive just fine on her own. She is very calm and level-headed; panic is simply not in her nature. She is blunt and says it how she sees it, no matter whom it may hurt. She likes figuring out how other people's minds work and their thought and decision-making processes. She is curious in a disinterested way. She can usually predict correctly what is going to happen before it does, but she is not psychic, just very observant.
History: Noriko never understood other people, and they never understood her. While no one ever wanted to understand her, she wanted to understand other people, which is what got her interested in psychology. Noriko always had an affinity for sharp objects, and quickly became a master of knives, before moving on to swords, then more exotic ones such as axes and spears. Noriko pretty much mastered any weapon with a blade over the years. She liked the feel of control it gave her and the rush of adrenaline that flooded through her when she hit the bullseye. Along with her blade studies, Noriko immersed herrself in advances subjects such as psychology and anatomy, but never math. Noriko didn't like the way it usually had only one answer; Noriko liked to try to predict the correct outcome when the was a high rate of her being wrong. When she entered college, she double majored in psychology and sociology. During college she rented out her services to different institutions to do shows where she amazed people with her skill at handling blades, which earned her some extra money. She continued this after enrolling in a different college to pursue a master's degree in both. She was at the school to do a performance when the outbreak started. Unfortunately, all of her helpers were one of the first infected, so she had to kill them. She gathered up most of her weapons and set out to find others.
Abilities: Analyzing situations and people, killing zombies
Weapon: Anything with a blade, though mainly a large, long double-bladed axe
Other: For some reason, she really likes plants, cicadas, and jellyfish.
Rude, smart mouthed, practical, defiant, stubborn and sarcastic. Morbid. Nostalgic. For obvious reasons, Kyousuke is reluctant to depend on anyone, but will do so if the circumstances calls for it. He tends to keep what he knows to himself and sometimes even goes as far as to lie to his closest "companions" in order to keep everyone away from "his" assets.
History: King of the Underground anyone?
Well of course not, Kyousuke was probably the poorest kid you've ever met. During the first four years of his life he was stuck in the foster home system. It was here that he accumulated majority of his trust problems. You'd be surprised how stupid people are, Kyousuke was. How hard was it to know whether you want to be a parent or not? It's probably the simplest choice you can ever make! Little did he know the reason why no one wished to raise him was because of his frightening face. If glasses and pimples marked ingenuity, Kyousuke's eyes marked that of a killer. It hardly matters now though. It was thanks to those years of patient waiting that he was eventually adopted by someone who was truly looking from a child. Kyousuke was adopted by Kenpachi Kobayashi, an drug lord that ran business with the Yakuza. Needing a heir that wasn't a complete wuss and pansy, Kyousuke's violent appearance marked him as a perfect candidate. Kyousuke matured much faster than his peers thanks to his father's business and his immediate involvement. He was an accepted and established member of the Yakuza well before entering his second year of High School. Then shit went down. His father was arrested and started ratting in an effort to shorten his sentence (resulting his murder in prison). Their assets were drained by the government, Kyousuke himself was sentenced to a year or two in jail. They were at least nice enough to not put it on his public record. When he left jail he decided to get a job. Why not become a High School Janitor right? Want a car? Let's hot wire. Let's get inside that house? Don't break the window you idiot, learn how to pick a lock.
He's good for about anything from petty crimes to large drug exchanges.
Mopping, he's great at that apparently. I mean why else would the Scho-
I jest. One of Kyousuke's many skills is that he's wonderful with firearms. What type of rock do you have to be living underneath to not know how to kill a man with one shot while you worked in the Yakuza. Anything, everything, nothing. Kyousuke knows how to fight, and well that's a pretty universal skill if you've ever had the rough. Kyousuke has one advantage that many other don't have: he has the ability to get his hands on firearms. Yakuza storehouses and all, they're smart enough to clean out the big ones, but what about the smaller ones? It's like knowing a bootlegger during prohibition, he'll hook you up. Want a car? Let's hot wire. Wanna get inside that house? Don't break the window you idiot, learn how to pick a lock. Wires? I'm a janitor named Kyousuke, I have wire clippers just in case those hood rats that plays tricks.
He's good for about anything that a criminal would get arrested for.
Kyousuke is also wonderful at running his mouth and pissing people off. He's also not book smart at all. It gets pretty ridiculous at some points.
Wirecutters, that cool ring of keys all janitors have, two pairs of work gloves, that flat thing you use to scrap gum from underneath the desk, a wrench, and finally a good old rusty crowbar. What's to come is a different story.

Name: Yukio Tanaka
Just imagine him in a male nurse outfit.
Personality: Stoic in stressful times, friendly and fatherly at other times. Usually he'll be in a confident and correct posture, catching everything around him with his senses as he enjoys being there and thinks up of stories to write and images to paint.
History: He was a rather average kid when he was young, with the exception that he never, ever went out of his way to ask a girl out or even flirt with any. Everytime one would flirt with him, it would be a disaster, with him being shy and not being able to speak. So, it all forged him into the man he is today. Sensitive, artsy, caring, comforting, warm, but also slightly effeminate when all of his barriers are down. Only one person was able to take his barriers down, and that's his girlfriend, an active military officer. he always thought it was funny that his girlfriend was taking the role he should be taking, but they were both happy with it.
He's an avid gymnast, having practiced the sport since he was twelve years old, and participates in competitions very often. He did a quick workshop on how to be a nurse, and after some help by his girlfriend, he managed to land a job at the school. Sure, most of the money he earned went right into his psychology studies, so he doesn't have a lot of money at the moment. He's recently a graduate and just began truly helping his girlfriend with paying for the small apartment they own.
Abilities: He's basically the school's nurse, attending to the hurt students each day, due to this he's got a lot of medical knowledge. He also has a psychology degree, and is a follower of stoicism in certain cases, meaning he'll be calm in stressful times. He's a gymnast, which gives him lots of agility and physical endurance.
Weapon: Well... He has no weapon. Maybe if one of the students gives him one... then again, he doesn't know how to use any weapon at all.
Other: Not much. He's artistic, loves to dance, paint and write poems.
Name: Ikaku Musoka
Personality: Ikaku is laid back and generally easy going. He has no sense of shame or regret, believing that what he does in the moment is what was supposed to happen. He does admittedly have a very fatalist approach to life and strongly believes in set plans and places for everyone, and that no one should step beyond their station in life. He does not call people by honorifics unless they earn his respect.
When performing Kenjutsu, he becomes very silent and intense. It's almost as if he is a different person when he picks up his blade.
History: Ikaku had an average life, mother and father were everyday workers and made sure Ikaku had what he wanted within reason. He grew up watching Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, always jumping around the house pretending to be his favorite character of the week. An active kid that grew into an active teen.
School wasn't easy for Ikaku. He wasn't a stupid kid, he just didn't want to be there. He wanted to be outside in the sun, lounging around or practicing with his blade. High school became a bit more difficult. He never really fit into a specific group...he was always a friend of a friend but never really got along with anyone. He was an outsider and would always be an outsider.
Though this oddity became a fuel for the young man. His lack of acceptance by others led him towards taking on new paths. He directed his sadness and anger and all other emotions into his Kendo. He learned quickly and was the prize student of the school in a short time.
Despite this he never strove to be different in any way or congratulated. He would never compete and would only accept honor challenges on behalf of the school. Maybe to find some acceptance into the school....maybe...
(( more history will be unveiled through RP)
Abilities: Smart in the general sense of the word. Skilled with melee weaponry, adept with blades and uses a self styled Iaido form of Kenjutsu.
