THE KING IN THE NORTH!
Virtue? Nah, vice is so much sweeter. Roll the dice, and let Lady Luck take the reigns.
Heaven's Phoenix; Referred to as "Toasty" by gamblers, despite his disapproval
Type of Angel/Demon:
Appears to be 25; His true age is 1126
Theo is working as a bartender in a lofty club, located in downtown Purgatory Heights, called Pinnacle. However, he also has a nasty gambling addiction.
Fire Manipulation: Theo can control moderate flames, able to launch balls of fire and create whips of flame. If he is careful, he can cloak himself in fire. That doesn't necessarily guarantee everything will be unscathed once the fire fades.
✔ Interesting men
✔ Electronic music
✘ Some demons, not all
Theo has a thing for facades. Filters that he puts up between him and others to swing things in his favor. He'll flirt, intimidate, and persuade his way out of bad situations as much as possible, no matter who you are. Status means little to him, and as such, he tends not to show respect even to Archangles and Seraphim. Mostly because they'd probably kill him on sight. How high up the ladder you are does not mean you are worth a damn. Theo, therefore, tends to ignore anything that negatively refers to his Virtue status. In the end, money matters more than the word of some stupid fool. Oh, does this Angel love cash. He'll gamble as much as he can get by with, living for the thrill of maybe winning it big.
What would he do with all that money, you ask? Probably just stare at it and admire it. Or lose it all in a game of poker. If you have the cash, Theo tends to be as sweet as sugar, or tough as nails. Anything for that dollar. He doesn't view people as objectively as other Angels may, but he will do what he can for profit, even if that makes him feel guilty. However, if he has feelings for someone, money surprisingly takes a backseat. All he wants is for that person to be happy. This is when his gambling addiction sort of goes into recession. When he has something to focus on besides card games and how much is in his bank account, Theo becomes a compassionate person that leaves that Angel stereotype behind. They were all self-righteous jerks in the end, only caring about their own holiness to further their own goals. Which was Theo before Purgatory Heights.
Theo tends to stay quiet and keep an expressionless face, a habit formed from his long history with poker faces. He can be pretty hard to read, unless he's angry. Then things just catch on fire. He has a cool head, but there are things that can push him over the edge, such as the aforementioned happiness of someone he cares about. Theo can also fall into depression occasionally, truly sick of his addiction. All in all, he feels as though he is an incomplete soul, and he uses gambling to fill that void. Needless to say, a friend or relationship would probably fill that much better. But he's stubborn, and his independence stands in the way of that.
Why did you come to Purgatory Heights?:
Theo came to Purgatory Heights to break free from the Angelic Hierarchy. The fact there are powers above him, besides God and Lucifer, bothers him, and he prefers to work on his own motives. He also feels, sometimes, that he wishes to become human, but he hasn't decided yet.
Theo's wings are a burnt orange, reminiscent of a phoenix's wings. Almost always, Theo carries his ornamental lighter, which is a silver windproof lighter with a phoenix design.

“Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.” -Lewis Carroll
Type of Angel/Demon:
Older than he'd like to admit, but around his early 1000s; looks to be in his early 20's
Chef at a High Class Restaurant; Campi di Ambrosia (Fields of Ambrosia)
(I've underlined his actual ability, his others are innate. If those are an issue, then I'll erase them.)
Alacrity - There is a bright side to being a Seraphim, aside from mating with the mortals (a joke Raleigh loves to make), and that's the amazing agility and durability they tend to have. There's next to nothing that can rival the speed of a Seraphim, though Raleigh's has been toned down quite a bit due to his actual ability. 'You can have the cake, but you can't eat it,' a term for the mitigated powers Raleigh has, especially within Purgatory. The exact enhancements that Raleigh has are extreme reflex, to the point of being able to sense danger; amazing flexibility, Raleigh won't contort on will, and probably never will, but he does use his flexibility to preform very agile maneuvers; enhanced speed, being able to run and respond at inhuman speeds; and durability, though not to the point of invulnerability, he's a tough cookie and the usual conventional methods aren't going to affect him as much as it would a human. However, this durability extends to physical means and anything magical has the usual desired affect, minus psychokinetic abilities pertaining to the banishment and harm of demons. All these enhancements also mean that Raleigh is subject to the strength and intelligence his mind and body permit him, of which he works hard to keep at peak condition. He's worked hard to get the musculature and tone he now has.
Tranquility - Being an angel, Raleigh exudes a presence, or aura that radiates from his person. It doesn't force or manipulate the emotions of other people, simply encourages them to feel as he does. It's more so an emphatic connection to those around him than an actual presence. What he exudes does depend on his emotion, but is heavily influenced by his nature, that being a calm, calculating, and tranquil person. It's affects radiate from his person to encourage a calm environment, and can add to the atmosphere of the area. It's the prime reason his the kitchen he runs is notoriously quieter than the actual restaurant.
Dimensional Shifting - Raleigh is able to shift into different dimensions for a small amount of time, using it to travel from point A to point B in literally no time flat. It's the main reason his speed is drastically reduced, due to the nature of this particular ability. Well, it only affects him when he's in Purgatory Heights, which is where he resides 24/7. To explain the actual ability, Raleigh is able to open two portals simultaneously, only visible to certain eyes. Lower class demons and angels only see him practically appearing in another spot, but people with specially trained eyes are able to pinpoint both portals and predict where he's going to be next. The speed is still extraordinary and it is still difficult to react to such, but not impossible. He remedies such weakness by making his movements unpredictable, but sadly, the moment he enters a dimension he is tied to the exiting portal, i.e. he can't change the destination, but he can open successive portals and move through them near instantly. In Purgatory Heights, he is only able to move short distances without relative thought, the greater the distance, the longer it takes to shift into another dimension, to the point where he is unable to shift any farther.
✔ Calm, sociable people
✔ Food/Making Food/Eating
✔ Comedies and Romantic Movies
✔ Humans (in the most philosophical way possible)
✔ Being genuine
✔ Fine Wine
✘ Rude, disrespectful attitudes
✘ Senseless violence
✘ People who hold grudges
✘ Manipulative people
✘ Not holding true to a deal or promise
✘ Being illogical; acting without viable reasons
No one is inherently perfect in the world, angels included. Raleigh is far from that status, but neither is he near fallen from the graces of God. There's a fine line between the two and that's exactly where Raleigh sits, preferring to let things flow on their own accord, rather than casting judgement and intervening. Unless the situation pertains to himself, then Raleigh simply respects the privacy of other people's problems and issues. The only exception is if his people or someone he deeply cares about is under severe prosecution, which means the situation now pertains to him. In that case, Raleigh is a very loyal and protective individual and will do what he can to right what has been wronged. It's cause for determination and that's exactly what Raleigh has always been blessed with. Since the beginning of his creation has he been fierce in these rights, unwilling to stand down to opposition should a line be tread. It's also a great weakness, his over-commitment and willingness to fall with what and who he believes to be right. Anything out these domains could affect Raleigh less and anything that he feels isn't treading on his person should be left to its own devices; there's a reason humans weren't enslaved to the demands of any deity and given free will. There's no place to intervene and force a change where there shouldn't be one.
Aside from that aspect, Raleigh is a somewhat sociable individual, preferring the company of people rather than the silence an empty apartment offers. He's laid back and is anything but the life of the party, more like the guy who gives you those good, witty laughs, and then simple amuses himself with the antics of others. To the person he's attached himself to romantically, Raleigh spews out any love he can over, preferring their company over all else. As with people he cares about, Raleigh is fiercely loyal to those he loves and is often content to their whims and wants. He tends to go out of the way to make those he loves comfortable. Raleigh is an individual who likes depth, and tends to amuse himself with the small fascinations of life, something he couldn't possibly do as an angel. Humans intrigue him beyond belief, watching their toils and moral obligations and trying to understand the way they think, but ultimately failing to. He may not understand them completely, but he blends in extremely well, though the small things do confuse him; curiosity is what drives him further towards these people, feeling a sense of want for their humanity.
He interacts with anyone who will have him and respect who and what he is, as well as abstain from those he feels are too volatile and a little too violent. Social statuses mean little to him, but he believes everyone deserves respect, regardless of who they are. It extremely offends him should respect and trust be blown out the door, which is a more common occurrence than he'd like to admit. But, Raleigh holds no grudges and tends to forgive and forget, though if it there is no sign of change in the individual, he will simply let the relationship die and move on. There's no sense in trying to fix people unwilling to change, or even attempt to fix anyone for that matter. If the world permits it, then they'll change in time and their attitude is usually of no concern to Raleigh should things get more than heated. It takes a lot to make Raleigh angry and he's successfully gone through the years lacking in enemies.
Combat is not a common occurrence, but it is a well known one. Raleigh approaches combat situations with a calm mind and an ease about him. He likes to approach battle with a spontaneity and an open mind, as well as an open exit should things not go accordingly. Unpredictability has it's problems, but Raleigh tends to use what he can to his advantage, whilst keeping every option feasible open to him. He approaches his foes cautiously, overestimating their abilities, while underplaying his own to keep a step up and a sense of preparedness, in spite of his somewhat aimlessness when planning ahead. If a foe becomes too much to handle, then he simply flees without a second though. The only exceptions being the fact that he's fighting to save or help someone, has allies fighting with him, or if the consequences are dire should he flee.
Why did you come to Purgatory Heights?:
There's a time for everything, if one weren't bound by a code of laws and obligations tasked by an almighty deity. It's the moments where the stress of having no freedom haunts him to the point of wanting no more than to die. Raleigh followed rules set on by his creator to a strict T, though and willfully does it despite his woes. There was no boundary overstepped and no mission given that wasn't accomplished over his long life. However, during times where he was allowed to relax, which was close to never, were the occasions he took to observe life to its fullest. It was the rarity of these moments that got to Raleigh. Jealousy wasn't an issue, it was the lust and the want that got to Raleigh. He saw the humans, how much freedom they had to do as they wished, unburdened by the tasks that plagued them. Blind to the horrors and travesties brought by the human race, Raleigh only took note of the romance, unconditional love, dreams, and hopes of these people. It wasn't until he cracked under his own pressure did he flee to Purgatory Heights, wanting and needing to shed his wings for a chance at being human, regardless of whether or not he pretended. He wanted to feel the joys that being human had to offer, still tuned into the optimistic side of things and completely ignoring the suffering and the pain that came with mortality. Until the day he is blindsided by such, he offers his hand in kindness and his wings for what the city has to offer.
-Has a pet cockatoo he occasionally takes with him to the 'outside world'. People give him odd looks. He's named it Leonidas due to his aggressive territorial nature should he attempt to buy other birds.
-Raleigh's various wings are large for a seraphim, reducing his speed when flying considerably--he is still faster than most angels, minus his own kind--and are nearly pure white, minus the various sprinklings of grey in them. They reflect light a considerable amount during the day, giving off a metallic feeling when directly looked at; during the night they give of a soft, whitish glow.
-Raleigh's allergic to cinnamon.

"Hell is empty and all the demons are here."
Race: Human Slayer
Dexterity: She is very fast and uses this skill mostly during her fights.
Endurance: She will fight until her last breath and can withstand strong attacks.
Strength: Though she doesn't look like it, she can lift things much heavier than her.
✔ Martial Arts
✘ Her deal
✘ People who interrupt her
Personality: Naomi takes time warming up to strangers, but once she does, it's hard to stop her talking, though she will also lend an ear to anyone who needs it. She is rather scatter-brained and forgets everything even if it is important (she'd miss her classes if it weren't for Nicholas to remind her everyday). She is energetic and rather impatient with most things, leading her to taking rash decisions. She can be very emotional, but does not like showing that side of her to anyone unless she is close to them. Though she appears tough, she is actually very caring towards others. Naomi is someone who is deeply devoted to loved ones, be they friend, family member or lover. It is this characteristic of hers that led her to making a deal with an angel.
The Aldrin family seemed to have the worst luck before Naomi was born. Her father was unemployed, trying hard to afford the roof over his head and her mother was of a sickly disposition. In desperation, Naomi's father made a deal with a demon - to get rid of all of his problems in exchange for an eternity in Purgatory. That was when the family's luck finally changed. Naomi was born soon after into a comfortable home and a happy family. But the demon had tricked her parents. Naomi didn't know the specifics of the deal but she helplessly watched her parents wither away in front of her. Enraged, she made a deal with an angel to grant her the ability to fight such demons.
Eventually, she met Nicholas Walker. It was an unlikely friendship, him being as introverted as he is and her being the complete opposite, but it worked out between them. She doesn't know why he chose to help her with her path for revenge but she is still grateful to him for it. Together, they seek out demons and angels in the city who are doing humans wrong and banish them back to their realms. Naomi still seeks vengeance and would show no mercy to the one who had taken her parents' lives.
Why did you come to Purgatory Heights?:
She got accepted into one of the top colleges in the city.
She wields twin blades for fighting against demons and angels. These blades are blessed and can harm otherworldly beings until they are weak enough for her partner to banish them.

Banish Entity - Whether the supernatural is weakened to the point of being sent back to their native realm or a being is under the influence of Possession, Nicholas may collect spiritual energy from the resulting fight.
Empower Will - There are few things that Nicholas wants out of life, and his friends losing the will to continue or overcome trials is not one of them. Spending what little energy Nicholas may have collected, he can bolster the strength of mental and emotional willpower of himself and allies.

Nicholas Walker started out as a simple young boy that loved to play outside and see friends, but over time he began to seclude himself from the outside world. Bright days turn into sleepless nights as a flat computer screen became his new universe, transferring all education to online classes. His parents have been largely supportive of every choice he makes under the belief that he is a type of genius that needs his own standards and must not live as the rest of society does. Constantly writing, reading, and exploring the many informational pages more than actually taking part in most entertainment medias (such as movies and video games, but will listen to music whenever possible).
As Nicholas reached the young adult stage, his parents signed him up for the most prestigious school possible: one that resides in Purgatory Heights. It didn't take much to convince him, but he was reluctant in the lack of online capabilities when it came to the classes. Once there, however, he shortly had the opportunity to meet Naomi Aldrin, a fellow student with a certain focus on removing anyone that does wrong. Infatuated, he convinced himself as well as Naomi that he could become an Exorcist to make her dreams (or what is actually vengeance) come to light. In recent times, unless actually relaxing in his room with Naomi, he'll be where he can to interact with her even if involves leaving the comfort of his controlled zones. While he is still not very physically capable, he can be deemed as knowledgeable in psychology and strategy, often reminding Naomi of schedules should she forget.
Why did you come to Purgatory Heights?:
Study among the top of Purgatory Heights.
His prime object is one that is actually a pair of gloves with dreamcatchers etched into them, with ley lines covering the length of his fingers to collect surrounding energy.
Quick question, are you placing a list of all the accepted CS's somewhere? =O
Just wondering, is all.
Yeah I will be, just didn't expect this many people to apply so quickly o-o. It's 1am here and I need my sleep, so applications will be accepted tomorrow ASAP. Really love the influx of people we're getting
Yay! I was accepted :3 looking forward to this. I'm liking a lot of the characters that are here too.
Kyoukai no Kanata
Nagi no Asukara
Strike the Blood
Yuusha ni Narenakatta
I will be using the primary genre of each anime to separate them as this list is going to be getting huge.
Warning: Some are 18+ and will be marked as thus
Another Warning: Not all of these anime are actually "good" I recommend them completely off the fact that I enjoyed them. Some of these I would actually call bad, but I will still recommend due to the enjoyment I had watching them.
