This application is purposefully very minimalistic. I want you to expand on information about your character, without worrying about minutiae. I recognize that some players develop characters ahead of time, and some develop in play. For play purposes, please feel free to expand on this information in any way you like (favorites, relationships, etc. etc.) in your profile post once the character is accepted.
These questions are intended as essay questions, but if a list makes you more comfortable, go for it.
Age: Must be 18 or older.

What are you looking for in a game?
Experience? If you haven’t played online, that’s okay, but if you have, I’d like to get an idea of your style. Please link me to your CDJ (if available) and a few threads for different characters played out in recent games (within the last 6 months to 1 year). Thanks!
Anything else? We all have quirks when it comes to gaming. Is there anything else I ought to know?
About Your Character
Planned PB: Include a link to a picture if available.
Name: Given name and any nicknames.
Birthdate: And age as of September 1, 2010. Characters should be born between 2/29/1976 (the first Old Race baby) and 9/1/1994.
Expected Graduation: For students, or note if they are doing post-high school graduate work. Student characters are class of 2011 or 2012.
Subjects Taught: For teachers, and some post-graduate students.
Old Race: Which Old Race does your character show the marks of? How does it manifest? When did they begin to show?
Family: Parents? Siblings? Living in Pelham Hills or elsewhere? Give me a rundown on the familial situation.
History: Tell me about your character. What’s happened in their life so far? When did they start school? Have they ever transferred? What are the landmarks along their personal timeline? Any significant relationships or realizations? Please be as detailed as you can, but you don’t need to write me a book. :)
Potentials: Plot hooks, secrets... give me some idea how you will integrate into the game and what you might want to hang plot on? Plot includes not only external events but also characters development arcs!
Appearance: Your character looks like the PB, so don’t worry about the basics here. Expand on the things that might not be visible in the images: marks, scars, piercings, how they carry themself, etc.
Anything else? Tell me anything that doesn’t neatly fit in to one of the categories above that you feel is important for me to know. If you expect to hang plot on it or have it impact the game in terms of powers or capability (special abilities, financial or social situation, etc.), please make sure I know it somehow during the application process.
