Application
left-aligned image
Name: Zeana Gelding
Class: Charismatic Hero/Personality
Nationality: Australian
Background: Celebrity
Ideals: Image - First impressions are everything. Do not mess it up, make them judge you how you want. Manipulate it later to fit your goals.
Bonds: Modelling career - She has a retainer, people who are watching and keeping an eye on her. She feels responsible for them and it would really mess her up if any of them got hurt because of her being a Hunter. Hunted - The vampire who was killed is part of a family and they are still after her. She must always have a Hunter with her when she goes to work in case of an attack.
Flaws: Attention Seeker - Zeana has a habit of turning attention toward her and taking the lam-light. Being ignored really pushes her buttons, leading to cases where she resorts to petty ways to gain some from those that do ignore her.
Appearance:
It seemed Zeana's desire was to stand out with her stylish, biker-girl fashion and multi-coloured hair and bold make up. She simply screamed 'attention seeker', one whom knew that her looks were a cut above the rest. When her honey, brown eyes turn to look, it is with easy confidence and haughty challenge, as if to question your very existence and purpose.

In an instant her personality shifts, glossed lips quirking into a lopsided smirk. The hard, judgmental glint in her stare replaced with glittering amusement. A wrapped loli-pop sails from her hand to you. "Lighten up, I ain't gonna bite." She winks, flipping her long, dyed hair behind her shoulders.

As she approaches you realize how short she is compared to you, just under five and half feet you reckon. It was just under average height for most woman, then again Zeana looked pretty young, eighteen, or nineteen. Perhaps there was still time to grow. It certainly did not seem like the rest of her needed to mature, your gaze drawn to her ample cleavage and well endowed form. You hear a disgusted 'tsk' and look up to see her playfully glaring. "Eyes up here when I am talking." You obey, introducing yourself and flashing your hunter mark subtly. Recognition glints in her eyes now, her grin growing wider before she leans in close and turns her cheek to you. Pulling forward her earlobe, you see her brand just behind it. It is stark against her flawless, pale skin.

Personality:
Zeana is a girl who wants to have fun, to let loose and be mischievous when situations are tense and unpleasant. She is one with the smart-ass quips, the one quick to tease when opportunity presents itself. However, Zeana desires a certain respect and admiration from those around her. She wants to be seen as capable, intimidating and strong, thus has mastered the 'resting bitch-face' and 'biting remark' techniques.

Generally after asserting her desired first impression, Zeana reveals a kinder, more friendly side. One where she becomes more of a friend, one that would not abandon her friends or betray them. She is not very sympathetic though and will try to push her friends to be more outgoing, and less emotionally 'weak'. "Slap him. He deserves it. Come on, don't let him get away with saying that to you!"

Zeana has a chip on her shoulder regarding her family, leading to bouts of anger and defensiveness when they are mentioned or if they are physically around. It seems focused mainly on her older sister, a budding doctor and exceptional academic. Favoritism is shown from her parents who see Zeana as a disappointment, and moocher. They are not exactly wrong since Zeana dropped out of school in tenth grade to do an apprenticeship in Modeling, for very little income. Pictures of her can be found in Vogue and inStyle magazines, though sparingly. Some might recognize her from hair product ads on TV more than in the magazines.

Backstory:
Zeana is a Model picked up by a Fashion and Beauty company who are influential in several countries now. She is only nineteen, and dropped out of school when given the opportunity to be a model. This has upset her family, so tensions are high. They still keep in contact but it is not without conflict.

She is the youngest of three siblings, her eldest sister who is in her late twenties is a doctor and her brother is an IT specialist. Out of the two Zeana is closest with her brother and sometimes asks him for advice about things that happen in her life. Whenever she visits Melbourne, she visits her brother first, which upsets her sister.

Zeana's work requires that she travels, but not without a retainer. Sometimes when she doesn't want to be followed the model runs off to explore on her own. The retainer is supposed to protect her from being swamped by crazy fans, or make sure that she looks presentable in public. While not liking to disguise herself, the model will to avoid being swamped in public.

RP Sample:
Ritual bathing and baptizing - Naked like the day of her birth, Zeana approached the in-ground pool. Steam wafted from the water's surface, blurring her reflection in the wall sized mirrors either side of the room. It was warm in here unlike the church's drafty alter room where they expected her promptly.

The older Hunters had afforded her privacy, at least for this part of the ritual which she appreciated to an extent. While it did not bother her massively, it still made her angst enough to be stared at in private situations. The way it all worked made her think of a cult, something anyone with a lick of sense would scoff at and back away slowly. This was exactly what she did when she was told about supernatural beings, even after nearly dying from the one that had been stalking her before she had known. The man had seemed like a stalkerish, fan boy and she thought so little of it, until he had her cornered in her own suite and tried to drain her of blood. Unpleasant to say the least. 'Hunter blood is such a delicacy, I am so lucky.' It was the last thing the vampire said before his head was loped off with a sword.

Idly, Zeana rubbing the birthmark behind her ear, feeling the groves of its strangely pronounced shape. A hunters mark they said. The very reason she was being hunted by supernatural beings. Releasing her pent up breath, the female slipped gratefully into the pool of water and began to soak. After about half an hour she heard gentle raps at the door and so exited, pulling over her head a pale shift.

A circle of Hunters awaited her in the alter-room, one gesturing that she kneel before him. He placed a hand under her chin and gently dabbed her face with a cloth that had been dipped in a bowl of holy water. She was raised Atheist, making the transition to Agnostic a real jump compared to what she assumed to someone who was already religious. Sure she still doubted there was an almighty man in the sky, but she had to admit that supernatural beings existed.

Ritual tattooing - This part of the ritual actually excited Zeana who fancied getting a tattoo since before she turned eighteen. As soon as she was old enough she got her first, a small, colourful butterfly between her shoulder blades. The only thing keeping her from getting more was money, and well partly her job. One tattoo in an easily concealable area was fine, but it would start to annoy her make up artist and photo-editor if they were forced to work harder in concealing more obvious ones.

It was clearly not a professional job, instead of using an electrical tattoo gun it was an old-fashioned manual tattoo needle. In the end she decided to place the marks of warding on the lower half of her back and the back of her neck if need be. How she would appease her boss and colleagues after hadn't occurred to Zeana yet, but she was pretty confident in her ability to.

Ritual binding - When this piece of information became available Zeana made sure to confirm exactly how the telepathy worked. It bothered her greatly to be forever connected to a bunch of other people, and hearing them in her head. How creepy! Still her instructors had alleviated the concern that her thoughts were not private. It did not work that way, it was like a radio. You needed to mentally surf for a clear channel, focus on it before being able to speak or hear the others. That she could live with.

She suppressed a hiss when the blade was pressed into her hand and drawn up, her blood dripping into a bowl already containing samples from the other initiates. They gave her a bandage to quench the bleeding, others commencing the ritual that would bind the group together. It was an odd sensation, like a balloon was being pumped of air inside her head. She heard static, like using a radio to find a clear station and then the sound dimmed, becoming bearable enough to ignore.

Let me know when your application is complete and I'll message you with a review. I hope that I can help all of you blend your characters into my world. I would rather have a hard choice in picking from many amazing applications than just having a couple that shine out.

Also, after building a little bit of the game in the game thread, I have a few things the players can begin to think about:
-I will be allowing each character to pick a ranged weapon and a melee weapon from either the fantasy setting or the modern setting.
-You will get the chance to choose a vehicle to take on your hunts equipped with an arsenal of weapons and tools of the trade. You will have to settle for one vehicle between all the hunters so be decide how far your character would compromise.

Rhiannon has little interest in vehicles but thinks a Land Rover would be a good idea as they are rugged, can be fixed in the field and spare parts are relatively easy to obtain anywhere in the world.
She will use a dart gun as her ranged weapon and a Kukri as her melee weapon (from her grandfathers service with the Ghurka Rifles)

I'm sure the XXX as a ranged weapon is a great choice but the YYY as a melee weapon isn't ideal, I don't think I can allow it lol jk

Weapons wise, Alexander uses a shotgun (the same one he grabbed while escaping his first monster attack) and a hunting knife. As for a car, he'd prefer something like a black BMW M3 Sedan: fast and comfortable, but not so eye-catching that you can't pass unnoticed when necessary.

In an effort to help you guys to weave your characters into the world a little better, I have come up with a list of monsters that your characters will have learned how to defeat in training with the Order. Some differ from the original Monster Manual versions but others not so much.
