Hey guys! Some of you I don't know, some of you I remember (and I hope you guys remember me), and it has been far too long since I've been a part of all the RP-ing random awesomeness, so here I is!
(btw, Gar, you are awesome for reading ChimneySpeak, and Queso, your pirate cheese is awesome, and Fenix, I'm still gonna call you Fenix XD)
Name: Alizea (pronounced ah lee ZAY ah)
Teacher, or Student?: Delinquent Student
Age: She doesn't count birthdays, so let's just say she's 1200 and call it good
Gender/Sexuality: Female, straight (though not really interested in sex at all)
Race/Class: Dragon/Wind Dancer
Weapons: Combining the martial art techniques of her mother and her father's magic, Alizea is armed with her mind, her magic, and her body (including the spiked tail). She has some control over the wind- she can't summon a hurricane, but she can stir up dust and fling it into an enemy's eyes, and turn the room's air scalding hot or freezing cold, but her main magical ability is in phasing: she can literally turn her body into a wind. She can't take anything she wears into this state, though, and she can't hold it for very long at all (10 seconds max), so she just uses it as a way to avoid attacks (like, a bullet or a knife slash). She can also "breathe fire", although what erupts from her mouth is more like a beam of intense sunlight than an actual fire. Again, she can maybe hold the breath for 10 seconds (long enough to set easily flammable things, like hair or clothes, on fire). She can use neither of these abilities in quick succession, and has to be well fed and rested to even attempt them (when exhausted, all she can do is stay solid and give an awkward-sounding cough).
Personality: Mercurial, curious, intelligent, impish and flighty, Alizea embodies those qualities cultures around the world have assigned to the very air. She tends to react rather than plan (absolutely brilliant in the tactics of battle, abysmal at taking the long-term view of strategy), bluster rather than craft a solution to her problems, and somehow just not think like a human. However, she can be very wise (just not when you need her to be), she loves baubles and new knowledge (courtesy of her Dragon blood), and if you interest her she can be absolutely loyal (courtesy of her mother's human heritage).
She doesn't quite have emotions as humans understand them, nor is she prideful; in fact, she is rather self-assured for a rebellious teenager. And rebellious she is! Having spent half a decade being raised by her mother (who tried in vain to instill human values within her), and a millenia being taught the ways of the Holy Dragon by her father, Alizea has decided it's high time to make her own way as her own person. So right now she's in a phase where she is quite disinclined to do as anybody says- but she is quite smart enough to see through reversal tactics (mostly).
Appearance: (yes, I went overboard: in the short, she has wings and a tail and otherwise looks basically human)
She looks mostly human, but there is no missing her draconic heritage; her tail is simply too thick to hide even under the loosest of skirts, and her wings cannot fold themselves tightly enough against her body to be concealed under the thickest sweater. There are more subtle indicators, too; her snake-pupiled eyes, her claw-like fingernails and pointed teeth, feet that are covered in scales... So, Alizea doesn't even try to conceal her heritage, instead opting to wear what's comfortable for her: bell-bottomed jeans with an extra gusset at the crotch to make them as flexible as a pair of dancer's tights (don't even ask how she deals with her tail), and floaty, thin poncho-like shirts (with slits cut out in the back for her wings to pop through). The colors of these articles depends on her mood, though she favors sky colors (grey, light blue, dark blue, and yellow) and motifs (clouds, sun, stars, etc). Of course, given her feet, she doesn't wear shoes, but unless she's standing on something hot enough to melt gold it doesn't bother her.
And as for jewelry.... ah, jewelry. As a dragon's child, what else would you expect? She favors skin-tight baubles, so they don't interfere with her movements, but she knows enough of metal-working that she can re-fashion what she finds so it's more to her liking. Having collected enough precious things to be able to work exclusively in gold and platinum, she carries her fortune of jewels on her person, woven into the spiraling bands covering her limbs and torso. Most of these are hidden by her loose, flowy attire (except for the bumps the gems form on her thighs, before the jeans bell at the knees), but if you catch her unclothed, you'd find more metal and gems than skin! Of note: Alizea favors opals, abhors pearls (since they aren't real stones), and fills them all with raw power (to call on in times of battle). She is also fond of collecting magical stones (especially those filled with fire magic), and re-working the designs on her body (having the same appearance for a week straight is an unusual occurance).
Under all the gemstones, one might think that her natural colors might be overshadowed, but that is simply not the case. She has the thick auburn hair of her mother's line, which she keeps in a messy braid, and her skin has a pale sheen to it. The human skin blends into the tiny gray scales of her feet (starting around mid-calf), the base of of her tail, and the insides of her shoulder blades (where the wings are). Her eyes are violet, inexplicably; her mother's were ordinary brown and her father's were bright yellow, but genetics do rather odd things, especially in cross-breeds. She is rather tall, about 6 foot, possessing a willowy build, long limbs, an 8 foot wingspan and hollow bones (like a bird's). Don't let that fool you, though- she has unnatural strength (for a human), and can punch and kick like a mule, and take appalling amounts of damage. However, if she does end up taking more than a normal human can bear, she goes into a forced hibernation state to heal her wounds.
Like her father, Alizea's wings are rather bat-like, with charcoal-gray fame and thin, slate-gray membrane; her tail is the gray of the wing-skin, with 2 inch dark gray spikes along the (spine? back?) and clustered on the tip. She has as much control over her tail as she does of her arms, but it takes more muscle/effort to move it, so unless she is utilizing it for battle she simply lets it hang limp (it just barely avoids touching the floor when she stands). Sadly, she can't fly with her wings, but if she's falling she can use them for a parachute, and they're good for helping her balance, though they tend to get in the way and be an easy target for an opponent.
History: Long ago, Alizea's father, Tomin, managed to fall in love with one of his warrior-priestesses (being considered a sun god's mortal representative on earth at that time, his tribe made themselves into warriors and scholars to model themselves after him), Naka. Admiring her bold manner and sharp wit, he granted her a wish. Having dreams of power, Naka asked to bear his child, and quested far and wide for the knowledge of how to do so safely. Everything worked out fine, she bore a beautiful baby that was easy to take care of (the legacy of Tomin being a Holy dragon), except for not being human enough to cooperate with Naka's dreams of corporeal power. Before long, she approached old age, and concluded that those destined to bring forth great magic and honor should not be allowed to have earthly power as well... but not soon enough to teach Alizea this knowledge. She passed away soon after Alizea was mature enough to look after her own bodily things, but was then consigned to being taught the Way of the Light by her father. She learned all she could from him, then decided that she wasn't going to let her overbearing father decide her future, thankyouverymuch, and after a couple decades roaming about on her own, joined the Evil Academy to gain more knowledge and a different worldview.
Reason for attending the Academy: She's bored, and wants to break away from her father's heritage (aka being a rebellious teen).
