Body Type: Curvy yet trim. She was gifted with curves, and hates them. She like to stay active, and keep off any extra weight.

Appearance: Elaine is pretty when she tries, which is not often. She is seen mostly with her hair in a bun, because when it's down it's frustratingly wavy, tangled, and likes to shed. She's considered cutting it but like to play with it at night. Her wardrobe consists of two blue jeans, one black, and a lot of graphic tees. Elaine has one trusty black hoodie she lives in. She wears makeup once a month if she's up to it. Due to her laziness Elaine struggles with acne.

Weapon: Elaine fights with two celestial bronze swords, She started out with one, but moved on to two. She had said "There's no use in having one sword if you've got two hands."

Armor: Elaine wears metal knee pads that stretch up her thigh to a belt. She also has a breastplate, and gauntlets. There are bands that go on her upper arm, but she only has those for style. There is a matching helmet, but she almost never wears it.

Skills/Talents: She is excellent at card tricks as she wanted to be a magician for a good long while. pickpocketing, Paper crafts, and playing the piano

Flaws: †
Flaring acne (see appearance)- Her acne can get pretty bad as she can be lazy when it comes to personal hygiene, It also acts up when she eats too much gluten.

Pride- She is prideful only †when she feels someone is telling her she can't do it

Rudeness- She doesn't always mean to be rude, but doesn't have a filter.

Violent tendencies- Mostly when put in a physical situation, but even when †she isn't she will go to the extreme.

Decite- Won't straight up lie, but will hide things, or twist the truth.

Strengths: Kindness, loyalty, physical strength, creativeness (thinking outside of the box)

Weaknesses: Elaine is too easily trusting, leaving her with many shallow friendships.

Likes: Goldfish (the snack), Cats, chocolate, card games, science especially biology

Dislikes: Line cutters, Like just people you cut in line. She has a strange hatred of them ever since the second grade when her friend Paisley would cut in front of her.

Fears: Elaine has been afraid of the dark for as long as she can remember. She feels like the darkness can hide many terrors. It was actually prescribed as †nyctophobia. She is afraid of fire, since the scene of her house on fire is seared into her brain

Personality: Elaine is very much an introvert. She has ADHD and attributes that too her inability to sit still. Elaine is very defiant, and will see something to the end no matter what cost, but only when someone else says she canít do it. She will be anyone's friend so long as you are the one that initiates, because she knows what itís like to be alone, and doesn't want anyone to feel that way. She does know when to step out of relationship. She has many friends, but many of them shallow. This leaves Elaine with many pent up feelings which can lead to outbursts. She will most likely not show it, but she is very self conscious about what other people think about her, specifically her body. †her most noticeable traits are her pride, defiance, loyalty.

Abilities:
Cold Resistance: The cold effects Elaine in a much lesser way than other demigods. Cold air doesn't bother Elaine as it would others, This does not stop her from wearing her hoodie. Hypothermia would still affect Elaine, it would just take longer to do so. Where it would take someone thirty minutes to get hypothermia it would take Elaine closer to fifty. Or roughly 33% longer.

Following the wind- Elaine can tell which way the wind is blowing. Itís just always there.

Powers: cold Winds: †Elaine has the ability to summon cold wind. It can stretch from a light breeze to a powerful gust if she tried.

Weaker winds: For her to summon the light breeze, just enough to blow a leaf (half a mile per hour to 50 MPH), the cooldown would be five posts. Elaine can hold a light breeze for up to five posts. Elaine can put one out within a 20 foot radius going out. Each 20 foot radius after that would decrese by one MPH.

Strong wind: If she were to try a very powerful gust (51-100 MPH), the cool down she must wait between uses is fifteen posts. She can hold her stronger winds for one post. For a strong push it's a 10 foot radius going out, for every ten foot radius going out it would decrese by 20 MPH.

Depending on the strength the temperature would vary. It's all the same temperature (30 degrees fahrenheit), but the stronger it is the colder it feels.


Social Status: She couldnít be fitted into the right category by anyone around her, as she always moves. People might consider her the cool mysterious girl or a freak.

Summer or Year Round: A year rounder

Years at Camp: two full years


Life Before Camp:
Elaine was born in Seattle Washington, Her mother Natalie moved out to a suburb in the hopes to have peace, and be able to study while she tried to finish her major. Because they lived in the suburb and her mom was very busy Elaine didnít have very many friends, and spent most of her time outside even in the freezing weathers, against her mother's wishes. After her mom finished her major she moved to Houston Texas for a promising job opportunity, Writing a book on how viruses travel through air.

Elaine was put in daycare up until she went to kindergarten, and started school. She was bright and very intelligent, but found it hard to focus in class. Up until fourth grade, Elaine was a social butterfly, talking to anyone who would listen and being friends with anyone. She began to clam up though once some of her ďfriendsĒ began making fun of her for her weight. She began to isolate herself and push away people. The only friend that stuck with her was a girl her age named Paisley that she met back in first grade.

Before middle school, sixth grade, Elaine began to see traces of weird things. In Texas it was either horribly hot or awfully cold, and there was never any wind. Not even a slight breeze, or a bitter bite. So one day she was in the back yard wishing for a slight breeze to cool her off. and out of nowhere one came. The next day a new teacher arrived, Elaine told her mom about his sharp teeth, and two days later Elaine and her mom were gone to Cleveland, Ohio.

This pattern continued Elaine and her mom always moving. One crappy pay by month apartment after another. Elaineís mom always claimed it was for her work. So she could study how viruses fly through the air, and continue on a book she was writing. †but Elaine never saw the sense in that explanation. She could tell something was off. †Picking up and moving wasn't easy. Natalie was secure in her job so long as she entered a new chapter every month on her book, but it was a small paycheck from just the book. Natalie had to pick up odd jobs here and there, when things were tough. With every move Elaine saw her mom less and less.

When Elaine turned fourteen while they were on the road, moving to their next home, Los Angeles. At this point Elaineís only friend was her mom, and even then she had grown distant. She was tired of moving. Her mom had promised that the last place, Corn Creek ,Nevada, would be the last place. but they had left.

After two weeks in Los Angeles Natalie was stuck in a house fire and died. Elaine came home to her newest home in flames, and fire trucks out front. The authorities said it was from the oven. Elaine knew that her mom had tried to make her a birthday cake to celebrate her birthday a little late to try to cheer her up. When the fire died, she found out her mother hadnít made it.

The police had taken her to the station, to try to sort things out. By the time she got there she had made up her mind. She was going to run. She requested to go to the bathroom, a guard escorted her. Elaine tried to convince them she would be okay, but with every word she ensured a guard was going with her. The †bathroom in the newly †renovated basement, where construction was still going on. It was one room, the guard had to stand outside the door.

There was a long but thin window high up next to the cealing. Elaine having two meals a day and walking every where was pretty thin, but she did have some curves, so it would be a tight squeeze. She also had to figure out how to get up, and quick. The guard would get suspicious. She had her sling bag, which she had been given back by convincing a female guard she needed it for lady pourposes. All she had in there was $100 from her mom, a few protein bars, pads, and a sewing kit. She did have a paracord bracelet, which she thought she would never use.

She had eight feet of paracord. She tied a scew she found under the sink to act as a weight. After several tries she managed to get it hooked on the latch. It would either help her escape or break, and she would fall. The guard knocked on the door. Elaine knew she was out of time, so she slung her backpack across her back and began the climb, the cord was hanging about two feet off the ground, because she tied little loops to act as footholds.

All her hours at the school gym climbing that rope, and hours of survival shows shes watched would pay off. she could easily jump down by the time she reached the window. The guard knocked again. there was about a foot of ledge she crawled onto, half of her body hanging dangerously off. she flipped the latch on the window and began to pull.

After a minuite of strenuous pulling, and almost falling several times, she pulled open the window with a loud creak. The gaurds voice yelled from outside, he tried the door, which was stuck from Elaine sliding the trashcan under the door nob. she unhooked her paracord, she would have to rewrap it later, and pulled the window the rest of the way open. She went feet first out her upper half hanging over her toes holding her up. She was up to her shoulders when The door swung open. with one last push she got herself out pulled up. She was in an alley, the offices had been underground, and the window led right to the streets. Elaine didnít have any time to see where she was, she ran.

She was confused, lonely, and lost. All she had was the backpack on her back. She hitchhiked, walked, rode the bus, and in the end stole a bike to get back to the only place that ever felt like home, Houston. †

It was a dangerous process and she was almost brought back into custody, and she had to bite a police officer to escape. Some of the people she hitchhiked with seemed really sketchy, and she often sneaked off at gas stations. By the end it was really hard to not look suspicious, after weeks of not showering. She had to wash off as best she could in public bathrooms, before going into any public place.

When she arrived in Houston she didnít know what to do. She was only twelve had spent weeks running and was now alone in the world with no purpose. The first night she spent in a park, where she found a cat she named Natalie.

She decided she needed to get help, running had been a bad idea. She went to Paisley's house who luckily hadnít moved. Paisley didnít recognize Elaine at first, and her parents werenít going to help, but Elaine still had a locket from long ago. They let her come in and take a shower, they gave her a fresh pair of clothes, one item being a black hoodie which she took a liking too. †While they gave her some food, Paisleys dad said they needed to make a phone call. Elaine knew they were calling the police. She regrettably stole twenty dollars from them before running again.

She had made it to Dallas, when she was attacked by a hellhound. It was huge. She was backed up in an alley nowhere to run. Accepting her fate Elaine stood her ground, willing to fight. She didnít have too though as a satyr escorting another demigod dived in to save her. He managed to distract the hell hound while she ran. He scaled the stone wall that had been blocking her path, then circled around to meet them. He told her that she was a demigod and there was a place she would be safe called Camp Half-Blood.

Elaine though he was crazy, but after the hellhound her mom always moving it made a little sense. She assumed whoever her dad was must have told her. So she went with them. Along the way she decided to drop Natalie at †an animal shelter, as she didn't know if she would be allowed at camp. The first night at Camp Half-blood was the first time Elaine had cried since before her mom's death, and it was her last for †a very long time.


Role-playing Example:
Elaine clutched her hoodie too her body ready to jump. She looked at the long drop in front of her, and then at her destination across the pit. If she fell she knew it meant death. Elaine let the wind rush through her lungs and leapt. As her feet touched the ground Elaine let out a cry of relief. She tumbled to the ground. Her legs shaking from the adrenaline, but she couldn't stop.

She pushed herself off the ground, moving her eyes behind her. Elaine couldn't see them, but she could hear them. Trampling through the trees, shouting at each other. She ran forward into the tall grasses. Unsheathing one of her swords she began cutting down the grass in front of her.They were at the pit shouting at each other on who should go first. All that mattered now was that Elaine put as much distance between them.


Notes: updated word count is 2653

Add some more to her appearance.

Also, is her cat with her at camp? Why would she keep around something she's allergic to?

Flaws:
- How bad is her acne?
- I'm assuming you mean she has too much pride?

Elaborate more on her personality. (You say in her flaws section she has an issue with dishonesty, but say here that she is honest?)

Abilities:
- Making it "virtually impossible" to freeze Elaine to death by natural means wouldn't be allowed; we wouldn't even let Khione kids go that far. Reduce how strong her cold resistance is.

Powers:
- Is there anything else she can do with the wind?
- What's the maximum wind speed (in miles per hour)?
- For how long can she control wind at most?
- How cold is her wind?

LBC:
- So... Elaine got to the house and then ran when she found out her mom hadn't survived the fire? The police would certainly have restrained her.
- A twelve year old girl running from Los Angeles to Houston would certainly have aroused suspicion.
- Had Boreas told her mom about Greek mythology, and that was why she kept moving?

Your RP Example needs to be at least 10 sentences long.

Make a note in her Pets section that her cat was put into an animal shelter.

Elaborate more on the last four flaws you list. (Ex: Why is she dishonest? How violent is she? Why is she rude and how often?)

Abilities:
- So can you define this cold resistance as more of a percentage? Like it would take 30% more time for her to get ill from cold/feel cold at all than most people, etc etc?

Powers:
- Specify if the temperature of the wind is in Celsius or Fahrenheit.
- Reduce the maximum speed to 100 mph.
- How much of an area would her wind affect? (For example, the wind is strongest within a 10 ft radius of her but then slowly loses speed by x mph for every extra 10 ft away.)

LBC:
- So when Elaine told her mom her teacher had sharp teeth, she immediately believed her? I realize if Boreas had told her mom she'd be on edge, but at her age these things could also be attributed to imagination.
- Also, how exactly did her mom manage to drop everything within several days and move to a new city? Like, they'd have to find housing, her mom would have to find a job, etc.
- Someone would have caught her if she'd walked out the police station -- like, there are cops everywhere. (There's also the fact that someone might have suspected something was up, like deeming her a flight risk or wanting to make sure she was okay, so they might send someone to follow her to the bathroom anyway.)

[Sorry for the late reply, I had finals and only got back home a day or two ago.]

Post by Kendall on 12/29/2015, 4:46 pm

Flaws:
- So for her pride, she's capable of taking things too far in order to prove someone wrong?

Abilities:
- Not really a math expert, but is the hypothermia example supposed to be out of 100 minutes? (50 minutes - 30 minutes = 20?)

Powers:
- For this section, could you divide this up into two different paragraphs/bullet points between the stronger winds and the weaker ones?
- Also, define the ranges for what constitutes a strong wind and a weak one. (Example: Anything from 0 to 50 mph is weak, 51 to 100 is strong.)
- Also, to clarify for the "she can put one out within a 20 foot radius going out. For a strong push it's a 10 foot radius going out" part, this applies to the initial use, right?

LBC:
- I don't think you answered my question about how their housing worked, if they kept leaping from place to place at the drop of a hat.
- So when exactly did her mom get this book deal?
- Did her mom choose to move constantly, or did Elaine somehow keep encountering monsters?
- ... Don't most police stations have bathrooms with stalls? Like I would only think police captains and judges and all would have single bathrooms.

Flaws- yes

Abilities- first two edited. I think it might still be wrong, but I was doing it out of sixty because of there being 60 minutes in an hour.

Powers- Yes the initial push.

LBC- Yes her mom chose to move constantly.
The offices were based in a newley renovated basement so they couldn't install extra pipes, but I did edit making there there be a few stalls

Abilities:
- By fractions: 30/60 = 1/2, while 50/60 = 5/6 --> 5/6 - 3/6 = 2/6 or about 33% longer?

Powers:
- Increase the cooldown for the weaker winds.

LBC:
- If there's two stalls, the guard wouldn't have had to stand outside the bathroom door? (A female one probably would have been assigned to watch her, not a guy.)
- I still think it's unlikely a 12 year old could go from LA to Houston and not actually get into police custody.

Abilities - edited and double checked

Powers- upped the cool down to five

LBC- I got rid of the stalls. Will the newly renovated basement explanation work, or do I need to find a new way for her to escape?

Changed her age to fourteen.

Oh lord, I'm so sorry I haven't checked this in so long -- I'd forgotten to do this because school had started this week and I'd been busy preparing to go back the week before. (Feel free to message an approver to check your form if it's been more than 3 days since the last check.)

LBC:
- You'll need to find a new way for her to escape, yeah.
- And even 14 would raise suspicion, especially among the people who picked her up? You'd be better off finding another mode of transportation for her, like train or bus and maybe stealing money to get the funds for that.

Again, really sorry for the delay.
