Hunter Exam Application
Name: Frederick Wolffe
Alias/Nickname if any: Freddy
Attach photo: Freddy is tall and lean with piercing gray eyes and unkempt brown hair. He favors tough clothes in natural colors.
Age: 16
Gender: Male
Tell us a bit about yourself:
Freddy's parents are park rangers in a large national park in the US and Freddy grew up knowing only the woods, the streams, the mountains and the animals. His father once tried the hunter exam and failed, but kept telling his son about the adventure and all the things a hunter could do. This created a spark in Freddy that later led to him seeking out the hunter exam.
As a person Freddy may come off as distant and hard to approach, but when youve grown to know him it becomes apparent that he also is loyal to a fault, very dedicated and able to withstand hardships that would make most grown men crumble.
Powers(quirks): , immunity (sleep), Overly high constitution (2 point defense tradeoff if allowed)
What type of hunter are you looking to be? Beast
Question 1: Your best friend is in danger and so is the client you have been hired to protect. Who do you save?
Loyalty is one of Freddy's most defining characteristics so he save his friend.
Question 2: You have been chasing someone for three days. You know they are headed to a small village to deliver a dangerous package. You have lost track of them and come to a fork in the road. The sign post reads " ACE CITY THIS WAY" and the wooden arrow points left. You know that the small village is down the other path from Ace city. As you are about to leave the wind blows and now the arrow spins and points right? Which way do you go?
When in doubt trust your nose. Freddy would go down the path that smelled "right".

Hunter Exam Application
Name: Hazel Lavosier
Alias/Nickname: Haze
Attach photo: Long black hair, dull grey eyes, pale skin. She tends to have dark circles under her eyes and a permanent expression of spacing out. Haze wears an unbuttoned lab coat over a dark shirt, tie, and vest. At her belt hangs a gas mask and a few canisters of swirling gas. Often seen wearing a fedora and smoking, and always carries a briefcase with her, filled with chemistry equipment.
Age: 30
Gender: F
Tell us a bit about yourself: Hazel and her husband, Jin, were once esteemed chemists, working together to research the use of aerosolized compounds to cure diseases. They had hoped to create fast-acting, non-invasive medicines to diseases that were either difficult to treat or incurable. However funding was impossible to come by before they garnered favorable results... and promising results wouldn't come without funding. To get around this, Hazel went against Jin's wishes and tried her hand a gambling. She was able to win... but only by cheating.
One day she cheated the wrong person, a mob boss by the name of Mako. Whether he knew Hazel had been cheating or not didn't matter as much as the fact that Mako had lost a sizeable sum of money. He got his revenge by breaking into her house and trying to make an example. Jin was caught in the crossfire and killed, but Hazel escaped.
Hazel now aims to become a hunter for two goals. First is to track down and kill Mako and his goons. Second is to get the money and access to rare plants to complete her and her late husband's research.
Hazel plans to become a botanical or disease hunter, ultimately... although only after she has hunted down Mako. She is cold, calculating, and sharp-witted. She is also calm and laid-back, easily falling back on her gut feeling whenever her intellect isn't able to help her. However she is generally quite passive, preferring to avoid conflicts and find ways around problems, often abandoning a superior approach to her goals simply to avoid controversy. She is largely cynical, as well. This prevents her from falling prey to manipulative persons, but also means that she is unlikely to take advantage of good luck when it comes her way.
Question 1: Your best friend is in danger and so is the client you have been hired to protect. Who do you save?
Friends are hard to come by, but clients come and go. If you have to choose... and you should never have to... choose to save your friend.
Question 2: You have been chasing someone for three days. You know they are headed to a small village to deliver a dangerous package. You have lost track of them and come to a fork in the road. The sign post reads " ACE CITY THIS WAY" and the wooden arrow points left. You know that the small village is down the other path from Ace city. As you are about to leave the wind blows and now the arrow spins and points right? Which way do you go?
Go left. If you could read the sign, then it was meant to point that way. When the arrow spins to point right, you would be looking at its back...
If the sign reads the same thing on both sides... well, just follow the wind, I guess.

Hunter Exam Application
Name: Jacob Yelrin
Alias/Nickname if any: Five Finger
Description: Jacob has grey hair and a short lithe frame. He tends to keep his face covered which some consider dodgy but in truth his nose just gets cold and covering it became a habit.
 His largest other defining feature is that he has five fingers and a thumb on each hand.
Age: 15
Gender: Male
What type of hunter are you looking to be? Head or Crime Hunter. Its what he is good at.

 
Tell us a bit about yourself:
Casual theivery of those percieved as richer than he is never caused him much in the way of moral quandries, and he stuck to this for a few years early on. However the crew he rolled with moved up to bigger things, thug work and occationally making people vanish. Jacob started these jobs as a lookout, but eventually he was talked into using the knife itself. No one expects the cute little 11 year old boy to shove a shiv in your back, after all.
Such crews, ones too small to even have a name, rarely last long. His crew was hit about three months ago during a sweep. He and two others were the only ones to escape, each fleeing to find new places for themselves.
With almost all those who knew of his criminal life gone and not wanting to start again at the bottom of a second crew, Jacob decided to check out the Hunter exams. Perhaps he can use his talents to earn money a bit more legally next time? Hunters always seem to be rich as hell after all...
Question 1: Your best friend is in danger and so is the client you have been hired to protect. Who do you save?
Both if possible, friend if not. Friends are rare and precious, clients come and go. Don't have any right now so not a real problem.
Question 2: You have been chasing someone for three days. You know they are headed to a small village to deliver a dangerous package. You have lost track of them and come to a fork in the road. The sign post reads " ACE CITY THIS WAY" and the wooden arrow points left. You know that the small village is down the other path from Ace city. As you are about to leave the wind blows and now the arrow spins and points right? Which way do you go?
Well, if I knew the way before seeing the sign why would I change my mind just cos a stupid broken sign turned up? Trust my gutt and go toward the village.

Name: Joao Pedro Carlos Luis Andrade

Alias: Alias? I need an alias? Merda. Uhm, Melvil D. No, no, no. Eratothenes......argh. JPC.

Hunter Exam Application
Name: Gloria Mupondwe
Alias/Nickname if any: Gumshoe Glory
Description: A slight young woman who seems of average physical health, with a slightly darker shade of caramel colored skin along with sharp, hazel eyes. There is nothing which stands out about her appearance apart from the mass of jet black hair adorning her head, seemingly groomed into a thick and full shoulder length tangle. More often than not can be seen in casual clothing consisting of sturdy, well-worn sneakers, torn jeans, dark colored shirts and a patched up blue jacket.
Age: 19
Gender: Female
Tell us a bit about yourself:
Career: I'm supposed to be working on this fancy criminal law scholarship, but the classes are so damn boring! It can never compare to the feeling of actually hitting the streets and doing something with your own two hands. So to stave off the encroaching insanity, I did some moonlighting as a private detective. Always had a knack for finding lost things, so I figured I might as well start making a profit out of my little hobby. Keeps my mind sharp too, which is a plus, because Lord knows I'm not getting any stimulation from the university.
Home life: Despite living in a neighborhood of broken laws and shattered dreams, life was pretty normal for my family. A dad, two little sisters, a dog. The university's just a couple of bus stops and a train ride away from our apartment, so I still get to enjoy a nice, home cooked meal before heading to class. I try to help dad out where I can. Poor guy's always stressing about money, and even though the detective gig's been bringing in a bit more cash, things are always pretty tight budget wise. Maybe if mom hadn't decided to get her stupid self thrown in jail, things would be different. But they aren't, so she can rot in her cell while the rest of us keep on living our lives.
Personality: Fantastic, and anybody who says otherwise can take a hike. I know what I'm worth, and I don't like getting short-changed. I'd say I'm a pretty good listener too, especially when people are poring their guts out. You never know what somebody's gonna let slip if they blab for long enough. Oh, and I love puzzles, can't get enough of them. Can't stress that enough, my mind's always buzzing and I'm in constant need of something to focus it on or I go stir-crazy. Fortunately, the entire world's filled with all kinds of puzzles, especially the kind people make when they have something to hide; there's nothing I love more than pitting myself against the schemes of others and seeing through their game. I live for challenges like that, and I don't give up until I've uncovered the truth. Some people might call some of my methods 'unsavory', or say that I'm 'obsessed' or whatever. I try to ignore it, results are the only thing that matter in the end.
Motivations: I hate being kept in the dark. Absolutely, positively, one-hundred percent despise coming across something and failing to decipher it. I don't need to get lost in the tiny details like the exact number of pi, but I'll be damned if I don't know what pi is and what its used for. I always need to be prepared so that I can never let someone pull a fast one on me, no matter how innocent they claim they are. No matter how much I wished they were. Everyone deserves that certainty in their life, even if they're not capable of reaching the truth themself. That's fine by me, I'll reach it for them and make sure they have their closure.
Goals: To find the greatest mysteries of the underbelly of our society and crack them wide open. Thieves, thugs, murderers, and everyone else who thinks they're clever enough to get away with violating other people's rights, I'm going to show them all just how wrong they are, and show the rest of the world that there's no such thing as a perfect crime.
What type of hunter are you looking to be?: Crime Hunter
Question 1: Your best friend is in danger and so is the client you have been hired to protect. Who do you save?
The client, of course. Friends are nice and all, but a woman's word is her bond. I don't flake on contracts.
Question 2: You have been chasing someone for three days. You know they are headed to a small village to deliver a dangerous package. You have lost track of them and come to a fork in the road. The sign post reads " ACE CITY THIS WAY" and the wooden arrow points left. You know that the small village is down the other path from Ace city. As you are about to leave the wind blows and now the arrow spins and points right? Which way do you go?
I'd check what my map says and head in the direction of the village. What kind of question is this? What do you think I am, stupid?

Ezora Livingstar
left-aligned image
Hunter Exam Application
Name: Ezora Livingstar
Nickname: Ezzy
Age: 18
Gender: Female
Description: Ezora has long, straight silver colored hair and deep red eyes. She is about 5'4" tall with tanned skin and slim limbs. She normally wears a black sleeveless top with white collar and gold trims, sometimes with a dark grey jacket, a pair of black shorts, and a worn pair of combat boots.
Personality: Ezora is a cheerful and outgoing girl, and can sometimes seem childish and naive. Doesn't like complications, or anything that requires a lot of deep thinking. She is normally laid back, but once provoked or irritated, can take some time and effort to calm down again. But like a child, it is easy to sway her attention with few of her favorite things - sweets (especially ice cream), cute furry critters, and colorful things.
Motivations: Usually her motivation comes from two things - rewards, and excitement. But she also has deep sense of duty, so if others are depending on her or something was assigned to her by an authority, she will do her best to complete the task, even if she might dread the process. She is trying to become a hunter to support her family, but also thinks it will be fun to become one.
Question 1: Your best friend is in danger and so is the client you have been hired to protect. Who do you save?
Best friend. Always.
Question 2: You have been chasing someone for three days. You know they are headed to a small village to deliver a dangerous package. You have lost track of them and come to a fork in the road. The sign post reads " ACE CITY THIS WAY" and the wooden arrow points left. You know that the small village is down the other path from Ace city. As you are about to leave the wind blows and now the arrow spins and points right? Which way do you go?
This depends on few things..how far behind am I from the person I was chasing? Also, how well do I know that person? Is the person aware that he/she is being followed? If I'm not too far behind the person I've been chasing, I will go to the right, betting on the chance that the sign hasn't changed since the person had gone this way. If the person I'm following is known to be cautious and knows that I'm following, I will go to the left, betting on the chance that the person intentionally switched the direction to point the wrong way. But then again, I can just look around and pick the path that seems more interesting.
