One hundred years prior to the beginning of the story, giant humanoid creatures called Titans (巨人 Kyojin?) have forced humanity to retreat into a system of concentric Walls (ウォール Wōru?) known as Wall Maria (ウォール・マリア Wōru Maria?, outermost), Wall Rosť (ウォール・ローゼ Wōru Rōze?, middle), and Wall Sina (ウォール・シーナ Wōru Shīna?, innermost). Inside these walls, humanity lived in peace for one hundred years, but in the beginning of the story, a sudden attack by a gigantic sixty-meter Titan and a smaller Titan covered in armor plates causes the outermost wall to be breached, forcing mankind to abandon the land between Wall Maria and Wall Rosť, which leads to famine and turmoil.
Little is known about the Titans, giant creatures that are usually between 3-15 meters tall with a few exceptions. The Titans instinctively attack and devour ordinary humans on sight. However, they apparently do not need to feed to survive, as they do not prey on other animals, even with the long absence of humans, and can survive by absorbing sunlight. They have hard skin and regenerative abilities, and can only be killed by a deep incision on the base of the neck. This weakness led to the development of the Vertical Maneuvering Equipment (立体機動装置 Rittai Kidō Sōchi?), allowing humans to navigate quickly in a three-dimensional space to access the Titans' weak point. Although it allows great mobility to a skilled user, it carries a large risk of overtaxing the muscles, requiring special physical conditioning and a sense of balance to master it.

Rated MA for Mature
You may start in any rank you chose, but I suggest you start as a Future Student. This would mean your character will soon become a corps graduate, but has yet to join the cause.
If you chose to be a higher rank, be prepared to post very little. Once this begins, we will start within the outermost wall, Wall Maria. After the Titan attacks, we shall start to retreat within the other walls.
The reason you should be a Future Student, is because I believe everyone will be more interactive that way, because everyone will be a group.
Don't get me wrong, I still need people to fill in as Training Officers and Higher ranks, so if somebody could do that, that would be greatly appreciated.
You may have up to three characters, which would be extremely great regarding what I said earlier about having higher ranked characters.
In aspect to the normal titans that try to eat humans, you as a player are able to control them. You may have them interact with your character as you see fit, but you may not have the titans kill other players characters.
If you want that, you will have to pm the other player and deal with it together. As for the destruction of the walls and giant hordes of Titans attacking, I myself will carry that plan out, or I'll let others know they have the power to do it themselves.
I don't want there to be too many of our characters to be able to transform into Titans. I know it may be difficult to find a picture of a human titan other than the ones in the show/manga, but if you can find one other than the ones in the real anime then go ahead and post it. If you can't find an image, describing it would work just fine. I also don't want everyone to be ultimately strong in combat against the regular man-eating Titans, there has to be those that have strong skills in other aspects other than combat. We need a leader, a strategists, scientist, shy people, weak people, medium people, you know what I mean?
As of right now, I can only have 2 other characters who can transform into Titans, so if you want it, you must post it first, no reservations. First come, first served.
Posing Rules: At least a paragraph per post. This means that there should be, at minimum, four to five complete sentences. Please no 'one sentence' posting. There is always something to write about, your character feelings, his/hers surroundings, noise, anything. You can keep it simple, just have more than four sentences. Thank you.
I'm not sure if these rules are too strict, but I believe they are reasonable and able to be followed. Let's just have fun.

Name: Haines Techeira
Rank: Future Student
As a human, Haines has brown short hair. He has broad shoulders and is fairly aggressive at times, giving him an intimidating presence. Haines' eyes are of the same color as his hair. Before joining the Survey Corps, he would usually wear a regular black colored short sleeved shirt and cargo pants that cover his decent utility boots.
Titan: Yes. When Haines turns into a titan, he resides to have his normal brown hair. His entire body is covered in what seems to be his bone. The Titan is fourteen meters tall. Its skin is completely hardened, except for muscles in its neck that become exposed when it opens its jaw, the muscle tissue behind his knees and elbows, and its feet. Other than that, it does not possess any notable anatomical deformities.
Bio: Haines has been a construction worker since he was fifteen, helping to support his mother who was ill at the time. He worked long hours for minimal pay. The construction work dealt with building and repairing the Maria Wall. His father passed just a few months before he started working and his mother was said to get ill from his death. The only reason she would leave her bed was to make breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The groceries and bills were paid by Haines, because he was the only one bringing in money. His younger sister, who was six years younger than him, left the house at the age of twelve. She ran away and has not been seen since. From what Haines was told, she moved in with her boyfriend who was living within one of the innermost walls. Haines hated her for leaving their mother the way she was, so he stayed with her until the day Wall Maria fell. You will all learn the fate of his mother, his sister, and himself as we progress through this story.
Personality: Haines is a passionate person, with a strong sense of duty. He takes his role as a soldier very seriously, and encourages others to do the same. However, he is also noted to have a kind heart and a tendency to always think of others before himself, taking on extra burdens for the sake of his comrades. He is stated to be the "guardian" of the other trainees.
Ability/Combat Skill-Set: As one of the top ten future graduates of the 104th squad, Haines is likely highly competent in the use of 3D Maneuver Gear and respective weapons. He is also one of the best hand-to-hand fighters amongst the recruits.
Battle Skill: 9/10
