If you've ever read the books, or like supernatural, eerie stories, then join this RP! Basically, in the books, Darren becomes a half-vampire to save his friend from dying. Then they (Darren and his mentor, Mr. Crepsley) join a freak show, called Cirque Du Freak, where they meet many different "freaks" and other people like them.
I have a list of characters, gender is up to you, and if you have your own idea, then submit it!! They don't have to be the same as in the books, like the half-vampire doesn't have to be Darren.
-New Half-Vampire (taken)
-Ringmaster (ability left up to choice)

((I'll post tomorrow!!!))
I'll join! But I've never read the book ^_^' And my charrie won't be up until after I get out of school.
Urgg ok. Since no one is posting their charrie, I'll post my own.
Appearance: While a human, he has curly dark brown hair, is caucasian and mainly goes around wearing thin, but covering clothing, for many reasons.
Bio: Atton had little control over his lycanthropy when he was young. It was more, the occasional scary sighting here, maybe a missing animal or two. Once he grew, he became aware of his gift...or as he referred to it, his curse. Atton separated himself away from society, searching for someplace he would fit in. Then he found the circus. At first he scoffed at the idea, but in his own right, he didn't have much of a choice. Atton settled down for the meantime. He also holds little/no ill-will against Vampires, often saying "Why would I? I eat animals, they suck blood. We're basically the cousins twice removed we don't like to talk 'bout."
Personality: Atton, thankfully, has control over his sanity, and as such, his personality is intact. He's fairly friendly, although the circus has had an effect on him, making him a bit quieter than he usually ever was. Even still, he's very laid back and jokes around a fair amount.
Extra Info: He acts much more vicious during his acts, doing his job and scaring the paying watchers.
Role: Fallen Angel
Appearance: Fair paleish skin. black hair down past her shoulders. Beautiful black wings and blue eyes. stand 5 ft 9in.
Bio: Ness knew she would never fit in with humans. her wings kept popping out at wrong time. One day she ran away and stumbled upon a paper that read Cirque Du Freak. She decided to join there. She took off on an adventure to get there and join.
Personality: Talks little and is shy. She has trust , but you will have to earn it. she may be a bit clumsy at times and like to cham people. ((to be continue during the story))
Name: Stevie Rae Taleon
Role: New Half-Vampire
Appearance: She has dirty blonde curly hair, but she dyes it black for the performances, to match the whole "vampire" superstition. She was tan, but is now getting paler because of her switch. She is average height and wears ripped jeans and edgy shirts.
Bio: She became a half vampire to save her best friend from a vampire attack. He had bad blood and a vampire attacked him, then to get the antidote she had to join the vampire.
Personality: A tough girl, she's always been interested in the unexplainable. She isn't afraid of much, however, she is afraid of hurting others and doesn't like heights too much.
Extra Info: Still learning about her kind, she's new to the business and is learning about how to perform.
Name: His real name is Colton, but everyone calls him Gwyllgi which is a name for a The Dog of Darkness in Welsh mythology.
Appearance: Gwyllgi is fairly large for a human, but not to big when it comes to the supernatural. He has broad shoulders and has a stalky and athletic build, he is also slightly bow legged. Gwyllgi's eyes are blood red and glow in the dark. He tends to have a stern appearance. Gwyllgi's back is entirely covered in mangled scars, he has a clean scar under his left eye and more grizzly scars around his neck. There is a tattoo of a rounded design with ancient symbols to bind him to his current form. Otherwise he would be able to transform into his hellhound form at will. He has paler skin and darker hair.
Bio: Gwyllgi was born Colton Hughes. His father had conned a gypsy, who in turn cursed his family. Gwyllgi and all his parent's descendents are doomed to be hellhounds, guarding the gates of the underworld and doing the devil's bidding. Gwyllgi didn't know of his true nature until a vampire kidnapped him and bound him to his human form. He was forced to fight other supernatural creatures, mostly werewolves and shapeshifters until he couldn't fight anymore, then he was brought to Cirque Du Freak.
Personality: Gwyllgi isn't sociable and extremely unfriendly. All he wants is to be left alone. Over the years he has become increasingly withdrawn. All he thinks about is food and sleep, and sometimes blood if he's angry. Gwyllgi isn't smart, but he isn't stupid either and can tell when someone is lying or not. If you're kind to him, he won't forget it, but if you're cruel to him he'll ignore it.
Extra Info: Gwyllgi's curse makes him supernaturally strong and fast with heightened senses. With time, the curse will make him more animalistic until he no longer has a human form and remains as a hellhound, but because of the binding sigil on his chest he is trapped.
((Hey Sorla? We already have someone being a hellhound...or a werewolf. I think those are too similar.))
((sorry I took a long time trying to make mine -_-'))
Name: Ester Syrene
Age: looks 16 but is actually a few years older
Appearance: Ester has pale skin and long faded/pale red hair. Her hair reaches past her middle back and form curls at the ends. Her eyes are white with a light grey ring on the outside. She’s 5’1” and wears a white flowy dress that is short in front and longer in back but not touching the floor long and she doesn’t wear shoes. She has the appearance of a 16 year old because that is how old she was when she died. She wears a red ribbon around her neck to hide the rope imprints she has there.
Bio: Ester died by hanging herself. She was tired of listening to her parents fight all of the time and then turning around and putting the blame on her. She had a little brother who she really loved and took care of when their parents fought. Often times he would get beaten up by his father so that the dad could let his anger out and Ester had to take care of the wounds. Her soul never left earth because when she realized she was dead she began to regret leaving her brother and when she went to go check on him in his room he and her parents had disappeared that night. As she helplessly wandered with regret and sorrow she found the Cirque Du Freak and joined to keep her mind off of the reason she was still bound to earth.
Personality: Despite the bad background, Ester is still a sweet girl. She enjoys caring for others and in fact loves being that “motherly figure” she used to be with her younger brother. But although she is kind she is not necessarily always happy. Majority of the time she is weeping or alone with a sad expression. She adores children and the night especially on full moons because it was the prettiest. And she is vengeful and wants her parents to suffer for all the times they beat up her brother.
Extra Info: She is not a figure of cold air that when you touch her your hand goes through. She is actually just as solid as human but her skin is very cold and she can chose whether or not she wants hands or other things to pass through her. She can also float but she can’t fly.
((Is that fine? >.<))
((May I have the shape shifter?))
Name: Vari Kuninganna (translates to Shadow Queen)
Age: About 19
Role: Elemental (I'm assuming only one element, so shadows)
Appearance: Vari has long, ink blank hair. Under the right lighting, there are hints of dark purple, red, and blue in her hair, which falls in loose waves just past her waist. Her eyes are a dark midnight blue, almost black, with flecks of purple in them. Her skin is slightly pale. She has delicately scultped facial features with high cheekbones and pouty lips. She's about 5' 6" in height.
Bio: Vari lived alone most of her life, traveling constantly, never staying in one place for more than a few days. Finally, she found the freak show and decided to join. (More as we go.)
Personality: Considering her formerly on-the-move lifestyle, she's very on-edge and restless, as well as very claustrophobic. She's usually very distrusting until she gets to know someone really well, and then she is loyal to a fault. Those who she considers to be friends will be put before her own welfare and she would risk her life for them.
Extra Info: She has random bouts of claustrophobia and rarely remembers what she does once the fear sets in.
(Oops. Never mind my skellie. Much as I love the girl. XD)
((Yes to Poultry. Sorry to Sorla and Darkness, I love your charries, but people already took those roles.))
