Special Abilities List & Application

We have had many requests as far as being allowed to become an animagus, be a creature such as a werewolf or veela, and some requests deal with having certain relations or familial ties to cannon characters.

While we do allow some of these things, they are requests that must be applied for and approved by the deans. Only the deans have the authority to authorize any character being anything more than a regular magical student. This is not limited to animagi. It includes all creatures, relations to canon characters, and any other special abilities one might think of.

I must warn you now, that not everyone will be allowed to claim such special abilities and/or relations. If you do not have a reason aside from the fact that it would be fun or cool to have such a special ability, then you will be denied. If you do not provide a good background story for your character having such a special ability, you will be denied. We will not allow characters to have these abilities just for the sake to have them.

These abilities have requirements of their own, such as animgi. Not everyone can be one, for example. It takes a person who is fairly strong and powerful magically in order to accomplish the transition from human to animal. It is also a dangerous and highly advanced branch of transfiguration, as deemed so by Minerva McGonnagall. It is not something that a character would be able to accomplish just by suddenly wanting to do it and POOF! they are an animal. That is not how it will work.

Keep in mind that these abilities and/or relations are privileges, and if you fail to take them on responsibly then they will be stripped from you. You will not be warned again. Should you like to apply, please review the list below to make sure we are not currently at our maximum, and then fill out the following code, and post your application as a new topic in this forum (topic title should be character first and last name, along with with whatever is being applied for attached.):


[b]Power/Ability/Relation/Creature wanted:[/b] (If applying for an animagus, please include the animal the character would shift into) (If applying to be any amount of veela, please remember that males DO NOT have any special abilities with this. They are merely carriers of the gene)

[b]How would your person use this power/ability/relation/creature:[/b] (self gain, defense, punish, familial connections, etc.)

[b]Background for this power/ability/creature/relation:[/b] (If a power or ability, this should tell how your character gained this power or ability. If applying for an animagus, this should tell how the character became one or plans to. If a relation to a canon, this should tell how they are related and a decent view of how that effects the character. If applying for a creature, this should tell how the character became a creature and how it effects the character. This should be as detailed as possible. If you give one or two sentences, you will be denied.)

[b]Sample post of character using their ability/power, or how they deal with the creature they are:[/b] (must be at least 350 words) (If you are applying to be related to a canon, this post should answer these questions: Does the character know of the relation? Do they intend to make the connection between them? How does this relation effect the character? How important is this relation to the character? Does this relation open up plots for the character?)

*NOTE: ALL special abilities, powers, relations, and creatures will have a maximum cap of 10, with the exception of canon relations, which has a cap of 20.

Power/Ability/Relation/Creature wanted: Metamorphmagus, Daughter of Rabastan Lestrange, Half-Sister to Leyton and Luca Lestrange, etc.

How would your person use this power/ability/relation/creature: Vanity mainly and some manipulation (metamorphmagus), familial connections and social gain (relation)

Background for this power/ability/creature/relation: Metamorphmagus: Obviously, Amandine was born with this ability. Even as a baby she experimented with her natural powers, growing out long blonde locks and changing the color of her eyes to match every new shade she discovered in her early days. As she grew, she discovered things she preferred, generally keeping her eyes a bubble-gum pink, as pink was (and remains) her favorite color, making her hair as blonde as could be and long and flowing, until the short styles camei nto fashion when she would try them out for a day before getting bored and growing it back mid-lesson.

She earned a reputation at school for being disruptive with her tendency to show her powers, and her joy at rubbing her ability in others faces. The biggest way she shows her power is in her eyes, hair, and height. She has not grown an inch since she was ten years old- though she has definitely taken to adjusting her figure to make it more appealing to the males of the world...

Relation: Ammy and her mother were cursed from saying who her father was, though she knew damn well who he was, thank you. They were capable of discussing the low-life scum that was Rabastan Lestrange between the two of them, but to say anything to one who was not a part of the triangle of deceit was impossible thanks to the man's magic. Thus, Amandine trained herself to never speak of her father. It had been embarrassing when she'd gone mute after screaming "I do so have a father, he's-!" so many times in school. When Rabastan died, the curse was lifted, but Amandine hadn't known until one day over this past summer when she was in Diagon and happened to glimpse sight of one of the Lestrange twins, who she couldn't inform where her half brothers and technically younger than her so technically that made her the heir of the family... she'd stomped her foot and cursed her father. Out loud. Without going mute.

The curse was lifted, and now she had a lot of things to figure out...

Sample post of character using their ability/power, or how they deal with the creature they are:

With every step Amandine took, her sparkly pink ballet flats caught the sun and shimmered, more than once making a shopkeep or random shopper grimace and look away in pain. Oh well, she thought, perhaps they should learn to wear sunglasses on sunny days... Her own bubble-gum pink eyes were hidden behind oversized shades, the frames of which matched the shoes and sparkled just as brightly. People were probably cursing her name, but she didn't care. Let them curse. It just meant she had their attention.

Pale blonde ringlets hung loosely down her back, sides pinned up to keep the whisps out of her face while still showing the luscious nature of her hair, and she made sure to add just a little bit of shine to it every now and then when it felt like it had faded. She always looked freshly groomed. One of the many advantages to being what she was.

Button nose turned up just so and cheeks the perfect shade of pink without any makeup whatsoever, Amandine was the picture of perfection and beauty as she waltzed through town, Cecelia in one arm and her gorgeous fur purse (unicorn hide, rare and very expensive) on her other. The baby dragon was a curious blend of pink and purple scales, with wide blue eyes and a penchant for puffing smoke and fire at people who annoyed her or her owner, but she was quite good for Ammy. The best part was, Amandine had paid a man for a spell that may or may not have been completely legal, which would keep the baby dragon the same size for her entire life. Just like Ammy kept herself small and compact.

"Are you ready, Cecelia? We're going to meet mommy's brothers. Well, we're going to meet them as mommy's brothers for the first time. I can't help but wonder how they'll feel about that..." she mused at her pet, who blinked a pale blue eye at her and wrapped her tail around Amandine's bare arm. The girl had a babydoll style summer dress on that was white with little pink hearts on it and a thick pink ribbon about the waist, bow perched just above her butt. The pink bows in her hair matched perfectly.

Realistically, even if she didn't hunt down the Lestrange twins now, they'd figure things out once everyone started talking about her name change. She'd legally had her last name changed to 'Lestrange' over the summer. Now no one could doubt her relation or the claim to the family, as she had to prove the legality with her blood. "Here goes..." she said, smiling wide and taking a deep breath before pushing the door open to the main restaurant in Avalon and heading for the table where the brothers sat together, completely unaware of what news they were about to hear...
