I'm hoping to get my app either today or tomorrow. I was half way through my original app before I realised I hated it. My new one should be interesting.

@Acathala No worries. Your spot is in reserve even if I did get a new application.

Haven't watched HxH in a long while, but I have fond memories. Let's give this a try.

Application should be finished.

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 Joshua Zeitlin, M.D., Ph.D.
Alias/Nickname if any Doc Zeit
Attach photo:
Age 47
Sex Male

Tell us a bit about yourself
CareerSynthetic Biotechnology Specialist, Boston Hospital. Harvard Medical School, Affiliated.
Marital Status During the interview, you notice that he stills wears a wedding ring.Divorced
PersonalityGreatest Virtue "You know, I really hate these questions. It's not for me to say, is it? But... Socrates said know thyself and all that. Greatest Virtue? I get my job done, I'm a team player, and I don't care who gets credit, This is said with some bitterness.although some people don't think that last one is a virtue. Eh... I guess if we're talking Seven Heavenly Virtues? Then I'd say patience, diligence, and temperance. As you can tell, I'm not very good at humility. I'd like to think I'm kind. I don't give much to charity directly, but I give to my Synagogue, which is sort of the same thing. And... eh... let's not talk about the last one."
"Worst Faults""As for my Faults? Contact my wife, she'll give you a list. Eh... actually, please don't do that. Dr. Brookwood is my contact and he's about as honest a man as there is out there. He'll tell you. I'm a bit hyper-focused and don't like interruptions. I get grumpy. I cover annoyance with humor and cover confusion with hyper-rationality. I really like people but they tend to confuse that with me actually wanting to talk with them for any length of time. So... yeah... Is that enough?"
I don't know the world of Hunter-X-Hunter well enough to know if this works at all with the general mythos.Motivations I worked largely with veterans in post-amputation recovery. I was on the paper which found the brain-electrode interaction pathway, and helped lead the design team which created the Cortical Control for the modern prosthetic. It's done. It's not perfect, but the hard work is done. I want to do something more. My new project is an attempt find and examine Callosal Syndrome cases and other "hard" disconnection syndrome, when the brain's Corpus Callosum is split and a patient manifests what appears to be two separate personalities. The hope is that this will help created extra-body neurolinks, so that one might be able connect with extra-body tech. Harvard didn't have resources for my particular research area (if you can believe it), so I want to go out into the world and discover what I can.
GoalsFind a cure for the condition.
Hunter Type Disease
Question 1 (Best Friend or Client)In cases like these, one wants to say that he'd do the proper thing and save whoever would be of greater benefit to the world. But we are animals first and foremost, and men only second. I would probably save my friend regardless.
Question 2 (Wrong Way with Arrow Spinning)At first blush, this sounds like a Monty Hall problem, and so one would be insane not to pick the second path. But the Monty Hall problem only works because there is another intelligence behind the alteration. Assuming (as a simple investigation would prove) that the signpost is fully motil, there would be no greater odds in choosing either direction. I would choose whichever path, for it wouldn't matter. (Of course, that's only if I accept the premise of the question. I would have of course looked at a map and taken a compass before I ever ventures outward -- and even that assumes I have some how lost access to the GPS and a watch, the latter of which I could use (knowing when the sun sets) to triangulate my location. Simple really.

The game was approved so I will begin setting everything up. Everyone who has applied welcome aboard! We'll probably be looking at officially starting next Monday the 17th give or take a couple of days. In the meantime once I have the ooc thread up, most likely in a few hours, feel free to stop by.

Modified my app a little just for World localities. I know nothing about Hunter X so had to do some reading. Changed some positional nouns. And I wasn't sure if everyone needed roll a 3d100. So I went ahead and added that part.

Description: A large and hulking teen with short brown hair and tan skin.

Career- He was employed as his villages official finder of lost goods. What can you do when you have super eyes and can read any text and understand it.
