Gunshots and fireblasts ring out a couple streets over. Just down the street, the street light has fallen down once again. The dragon lady next door screams as her cat runs out her door. Another car crashes into your mail box.
Just a normal Tuesday morning. Now to get to school alive...
» This is set in an AU (alternate universe).
» There are mythical creatures like dragons and kelpies. They are not kept as pets. (Most dragons can turn into humans. Sea dragons are completely different than dragons and both despise how they are lumped together. There are dragons that breath underwater, but sea dragons are more like serpents and don't have wings. Sea dragons cannot turn into humans.)
» There are not humanoid mythical creatures. Think elves, mermaids, aliens. Those are a no.
» Mythical creatures (henceforth called simply creatures) are not some cool and extraordinary thing. They're on the streets all the time, and people interact with them all the time.
» Several years ago (like five or six years), there was a group of creature hunters. They would locate any creatures that they could and either kill or capture them. It is unknown if they are still around today. (Read, they are totally still around but try to hide it.)
» Skip the code-word section and just put some random word at the end of your bio in all caps. Make sure it has nothing to do with the character. If you can't think of something put toothpaste. Why? Because I really like the word for some reason.
» Creatures can not speak human languages unless they have shape shifting abilities and can turn into humans. Take a kitsune for instance. While they look like a fox, they can only speak to other animals or creatures. After they shape shift into human form, they can speak ANY human or creature language.
» Animals are different than creatures. They are not hyper intelligent and cannot carry a conversation or have coherent thoughts. Their goal is simply to survive. (Take that people who want animal communication powers. You may have animal controlling powers though.)
» Most people have powers.
» Powers are pretty specific. Not things like magic, but more like things such as fire control or reading minds while looking at the person. (While we're on the topic of reading minds, there has to be restrictions.)
» Powers are genetic. Your powers are dependent on your ancestor's powers. It may be the exact same power or just a similar concept. Say identical twins, same power. Normal siblings or even cousins, related powers like one has fire control and the other can control electricity.
» Powers usually appear around age four through seven.
» Last thing on powers. Very, very few people have no powers, but they are considered very, very special. They are called powerless. There are two paths this can go. It could go both ways.
1) The power develops later in life usually in the person's twenties. They are incredibly powerful and have two or more powers.
2) The person's children have incredible powers that develop at a younger age than normal.
I'm not going to let people make many of these people. Meaning no more unless you ask. I will most likely say no unless you give a good reason. (Story is a great reason.)
» This is all set in modern times. Cell phones, computers, TV, ect.. But things like Microsoft, Apple, Disney, and Coca-cola don't exist. Be creative and make up something else. Once people start making some up, I'll make a list below to make it canon.
» The police force is a bit of a joke. Law breakers are everywhere. People fend for themselves. School is just a place to hang out.
The teachers don't have much control. Many don't even go to school.
» But do remember.
This is all normal.
There aren't really any atm. I made up the world.
I was probably influenced by Power School, Marvel, Renegades (just the first one, I haven't got my hands on the others), Onward, episode one season one of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and probably some crime shows that I've seen a bit off.
