6) Give a description of your character's personality. Personality must be at least one paragraph long. Are you noble or sneaky? Arrogant or Humble? Anything about your character that might help the Sorting Hat decide. (Don't worry, you can copy this onto your character page later!)
"Sugarcoating is a complete waste of time and I don't see why the ƒµç╪ people bother with it.
"I don't like people. I don't understand organic life forms. That's literally all you need to know about me. Oh, and stay the hell out of my way."
"Not good with organic life forms." If you wanted to dumb down Kress' personality into one sentence, that would fit her perfectly. It doesn't matter how well she understands quantum mechanics. She simply can't comprehend what makes humans tick and teeter about like the dunderheads she feels they are. Don't get her started on how annoying "feelings" are. That's just asking for trouble.
People's general existence makes her want to hurl. She hates how some of their movements are so horribly rusty and badly wants to grab an oil can and fix their joints if she could. The need for physical proximity also makes her head spin. What's with people wanting to be right in your face when talking? That makes zero sense to her. She believes communication is the same whether or not you're five hundred feet away. Ugh, humans, always making things so damn complicated.
Then there's the whole thing about "niceness" and sugarcoating. Those topics make Kress feel like her brain short-circuited. Why do you have to be nice to someone you don't like? Why do you have to lie to people? Why do they take it so personally when you're being honest? General courtesy? What? No thanks. Kress would rather be stuck with a broken record for company. At least that she can fix.
Honesty, or to be more specific, brutal honesty is Kress' everyday policy. "WHAT THE HELL IS HER PROBLEM?" If you've ever heard that rhetorical question, you'll know who the person's been talking to. Asking Kress for her opinion is asking her to unpin a grenade. She won't let any details go free. Her criticism is really constructive, but she doesn't get why people seem so offended after she nitpicks through the mess that is their problem. Maybe it's the bluntness of her approach, but who really cares? People started to leave her alone ever since she made sure that no one could go within five feet of her.
Homework? HA. Kress couldn't care less about homework. She swears it's all some big conspiracy to make them think military schools are worse. Her academic skills lay forsaken and accumulate dust as she lacks a ƒµç╪ to give. Rai is the only reason she's managed to scrape passing grades and advance to the next year level. She has a really soft spot for her ssangdung-i hyeongje, and he's one of the few weak spots in her armor of maraging steel. That isn't to say it's all his effort, of course. Kress is no slouch, and in reality, she's frankly good as long as she bothers to try.
Get technical, and you might just catch her interest. If there's anything she relates to, it's machinery. From broken cuckoo clocks to overheated carburetors, there is no kink she can't work out. Humans being the exception, of course. She might be as abrasive as her namesake (aka the moon), but you'd be surprised on what that tough exterior contains.
7) Write about the history of your character. History must be at least two paragraphs long. How did they grow up? Is there an incident that made them the way they are? etc. (Again, you can copy this onto your character page later!)
"Ew, do I really have to go through this? I don't see the point of going through my crappy past that nobody will give a crap about. Ugh, what? I have to? Well, ƒµç╪ you.
"January. My parents are a classic story. Boy meets girl, girl meets boy, they fall in love, girl dies, boy drops into depression, boy meets someone new who is head over heels for them, boy finally gets the ƒµç╪ over their deceased lover and marries the living one and has kids. Gosh, Dad, you had to be so ƒµç╪ing complicated, didn't you? Love's complete bull****. You should have learned that by now.
"February. Twins are born. Here's where me and Rai come in. I'm a quiet baby. Rai, not so much. I'm younger by a couple of minutes, and I cba to remember the exact number. Our parents adore us, or so that's what supposedly happens. Then the bills start coming in, and poverty hits. Sh!t goes down.
"March. We're barely a year old when they start fighting. I have a good memory, Rai says so. It's why I'm so good at math, but whatever. I've had it apparently since I was a baby, because I can still vividly make out their yelling. It's not nice, but probably how all those cuss words got installed into my brain. I'll have to thank my parents for that.
"April. Whoop-de-ƒµç╪ing-do, we're four years old. I like fire. I like seeing it consume the paper. Dad takes the lighter away from me, and I bawl my eyes out. How pathetically innocent I was back then. Parents argue. First time they pull me and Rai apart to sleep in different houses. I couldn't sleep and cried all night. Dad got sick of it and we went back to being in one house.
"June. They've calmed down a bit. Things have settled down. It's quiet. I steal the lighter and the matches all the time and I set the living room table on fire. Dad yells at me and locks me in the cupboard for the night. Rai gets me out. I set fire to the brooms.
"July. Dad disappears. Mom - gross, never let me repeat that again - tells us he'll come back. He doesn't. I nearly burn down the living room but Parent #2 doesn't say anything. I learn how to pick locks. I find a broken gramophone in the attic. I fix it. Rai is so happy.
"August. School is hell. I scream at the kids to leave me alone. I burn off some kid's pigtails. Guidance counselor. Parent #2 takes me to a therapist. I don't cooperate. I kick and scream and yell for Dad. Rai is in the other room, screaming for me. We go home, and Parent #2 is silent the entire way home. It hurts. I burn down the whole house. I'm barely alive. I'm on flames and I'm terrified. I wake up and I don't have a foot and a hand. Parent #2 is crying.
"September. Rai and I are magic. I finally know why I can burn things without matches. We get shipped off to magic school. I hate it. I hate homework. I hate people. I borrow (I was feeling nice enough to not steal) books from a Muggle library. I like them. I like engineering. I like fixing things.
"November. Two years of magic school. I still don't like it. I build myself my own foot and hand so I don't limp around like a handicap anymore. I don't want their pity. I don't want their sympathy. Feelings, yuck. I steal the materials. Parent #2 finds out and gets mad at me then cries. She goes and pays for the things.
"December. Something went wrong. Really wrong. Dad's been found dead. Parent #2 wakes us in the middle of the night and says we're moving to Britain. We're transferring schools. I don't really care. It can't be any worse than here in Korea. Can it? I don't know. We pack up, we take everything we can, and leave. For good, probably. What happened to Dad? Parent #2 doesn't want to say. They don't want to talk about it."
8) Write about your character's appearance. How do they look like? Are you planning on using a certain model for your character? If you already have a picture in mind, you can put it here!
Model: Nam Ji-hyun
"As pretty as the full moon, Dad always said. That was in the parent resume, no doubt."
Since being pretty isn't exactly a requirement for a gifted mechanic, Kress completely dismisses any comments (positive or negative) about her appearance. She's never found any logical reason to flaunt looks, and finds the simple idea of it absurd. For Merlin's sake, she has a prosthetic hand and foot. What is there to flaunt?
Her garb tends to be on the improvised side. It won't matter to her as long as it's not in the laundry basket. She's not even that nitpicky with cleanliness, you'll find smudges of soot here and there and splotches of oil. Being a mechanic isn't a clean job, and she doesn't believe in dressing up for company. To see her squeaky clean would be astonishing, and seeing her in the appropriate attire would be mind-blowing.
A toolbelt clinches her jeans to her waist a majority of the time, and she's rarely ever seen without it. Due to one last snippet of insecurity, her prosthetic hand is bound to be cozy in a glove. You might be able to find her walking around barefoot, but she does adore her leather boots and is forever giving teachers a migraine because she refuses to conform to the standard school shoes.
When there is a memo and Kress does get it, it will most likely be used for sandpaper. She will dress as she pleases, and it won't matter how many odd looks or sniggers she gets. She doesn't carry around a wrench for nothing, you know. It makes for an excellent knock on a head. Don't even mention makeup. "It's for try-hards and I will ƒµç╪ing fight you on it."
9) Are you Pure-Blood, Half-Blood or Muggle-Born? Do you have any notable magical relations? (Remember, you cannot be related to important Harry Potter characters!)
10) Does your character have any special magical abilities? Or special abilities in general (photographic memory, etc.)? Is he or she of a different magical race, such as veela, vampire, werewolf or the likes? Part or half of that magical race counts! (Remember, you cannot have an "exotic" characters as your first two characters!)
She's a cyborg. She likes to think she is and even goes by robot pronouns, but all she really has is a prosthetic hand and foot which is cool in its own right. (Don't call her a handicap, she will...uh, let's not go there.) She was going to install a lighter into the hand to make burning things much easier but decided against it since Rai didn't agree and fire is scary so it just has a Swiss army knife assortment of thingamabobs in it (for general tinkering around machines, duh.) I don't think that counts as exotic seeing as she's basically just always carrying around a Swiss army knife, but I can change it if necessary :D. Oh, and her prosthetic hand and foot are detachable but only if you know how to xD
11) What year is your character in?
Transfer from Mahoutokoro School of Magic, entering fifth year this term.
Any House You DO NOT Want to Be In? (No Promises, Sorry)
if you put her in Hufflepuff I will die of laughter
Any House You REALLY Want to Be In? (Sorry, Again, No Promises)
Either Slytherin or Ravenclaw. Can't decide because she has the brains but refuses to use them because she's secretly extremely paranoid and seriously considers homework to be a worldwide conspiracy
