Way better!

Only one thing. Change your combat flaw to:
Combat Flaw: When I roll a natural 1 with a spell attack, I hit myself instead of an enemy.

Makes a bit more sense with the way he died and won't be a great danger to other PC's.

Nothing else needed.

Alright. I think I'm good! Let me know if you want anything added or have any questions. I should note I know -nothing- about this setting but from what I understand that's alright. It will probably make things more interesting for me.

Your application is very good, I hope to see Senic in one of the groups.

Yes, as I wrote before, knowing nothing about the setting is perfectly fine, maybe even a bit more fun.
Players, who know the books/anime (mainly the books) will be able to dodge a bullet or two (if they decide to use player knowledge) or just recognise some obscure side character and treat them a bit differently (though, 10 years can change a person, so it may not always be wise to assume they are still the same).
Though, author of this world didn't really go into too much detail about many things, so I hope to surprise even those, who are familiar with the established setting.

Application
right-aligned image
Name: Rex Norixius Aka Reckless Rex
Race: Black Dragonborn
Class: Path of the Berserker Barbarian

5e background: Gladiator
2 Personality Traits: I insist that others call me by my ring name and will correct them whenever they do otherwise, or fight them. I try to infuse my actions with a theatrical flourish, but will never admit that my showmanship is anything but genuine.
Ideal: Ambition: History remembers the great, and I want to be remembered. (Any)
Bond: I want to be famous, whatever it takes.
Flaw: I will do anything to win fame and renown.

Additional personality flaw: When someone calls him just Rex, he grows in his anger, the first time he will politely correct them, the second time he will threaten them and the third time he has to make a WIS saving throw (DC up to DM and can change depending on situation) if he fails will try to attack them, if he fails by 5 or more, he will use his rage along with this attack. Before making tough decisions, he will flip a coin, letting Tymora, Goddess of Good Fortune decide his fate at that moment.

Additional combat flaw: Getting too old for this (I can't use the dash or hide action, and if I use Reckless Attack 3 turns in a row, I have to use an entire action to catch my breath. Also if I use my dragon breath, I have to make a CON save (DC up to DM) if I fail I spend the next action on my turn throwing up.)
*Also, include personality flaw, enemies can use this to their advantage if they begin to learn about this.

One skill with anti-proficiency: Perception/Investigation

Appearance: Black scaled Dragonborn, over 6 ft. tall, muscular build, instead of horns on the top of his head, his looks more like a triceratops's, with long tendril like things that kind of looks like hair. He has strong, sharp facial features, with deep, dark brown eyes. Like all Dragonborn, his hands and feet have long claws and long, sharp teeth that protrude from his mouth. His age shows through his scales, they are a lighter shade of black than when he was young, he has wrinkles around his eyes and mouth, and a number of smaller horns have began to lighten and form around his chin, giving him the look of a small beard.

He wears a costume that looks like a set of armour, but it is just for show, he prefers not to wear armour, makes his scales itch, he figures that his hardened dragon like scales are tough enough to handle any simple blows in combat. Around his neck is a blue scarf, loose fitting, and a black hoodless cloak.

Personality: Rex wants to be remembered as a great, powerful warrior, unlike his past life where he was exposed as a fake, an actor within the gladiator's arena. He wants to only go by his ring name, often if they just say Rex, he will correct them with "that's Reckless Rex thank you," if they continue, he becomes more frustrated to the point where he has to have his comrades hold him back, or he will fight them right where he stands.

Rex is also an older Dragonborn, his prime has passed him and he is on the downslope of his life. This leaves him achy in the morning and often having to use herbs and drink to ease his joints in the morning and throughout the day. Also a religious creature, he prays to Tymora, Goddess of Good Fortune for her good luck and when given a tough decision, will often flip a coin to make his choice.

He is drawn to magic users, because their styles often compliment his own and their buffs allow him to be great in battle and make his opponents look like weak fools. So when he meets magic users, he often will try to make friends with them first and stands up for them if they were to get into trouble.

He is also a show off, often flourishing his strikes, making a performance of his fights, always wanting to entertain those that are around him and build his legacy as an amazing fighter. Outside of combat, he is a fairly easy going guy, supporting the dreams and ambitions of his friends and doing what he can in order to get them to succeed. As an older Dragonborn, he tries to pass on knowledge that he learned, especially to younger generations so that they don't make the same mistakes that he had.

Backstory: Rex was a gladiator, famous for his fights in the arena against great monsters and powerful warriors. He had a very good reputation and was quite wealthy from his exploits and because of this success, grew cocky. Too cocky for his own good, as he began to bite the hand that fed him, angering the wrong people who knew the truth, that his entire career was fabricated by them.

Unknown to him, his opponents were paid off to go easy on him and throw their matches, the monsters he faced were either weaker than they were built up to be, or drugged to allow him to win. This was revealed to the public with the testimonies of the warriors he faced, as well as the owners of the monsters he fought, this not only shattered his career and his reputation, but it also destroyed his confidence in his own abilities.

This prompted him to challenge an actual, dangerous monster, in order to gain some of his dignity back. He fought valiantly, and killed the monster, but was also fatally wounded in the fight and died on the battlefield. His last moments, he called to Tymora and begged for a second chance, that he was so ashamed for being fooled like he was and how it corrupted him, he begged her to allow him the chance to begin anew and become an actual hero to the people, in her name. A coin appeared in his mind and it began to spin in the air and fall, this was his chance, he prayed for the head to face up, like her symbol, and it did, in a flash of radiant light, he was transported to a new world.

Name: Lyle Cobblepot
Race: Halfling (Lightfoot)
Class: Fighter (BattleMaster)
Background: Soldier
  1. Personality
    I face problems head-on. A simple, direct solution is the best path to success.
  2. Ideal
    Live and Let Live. Ideals aren’t worth killing over or going to war for. (Neutral)
  3. Bond
    Those who fight beside me are those worth dying for.
  4. Flaw
    I’d rather eat my armor than admit when I’m wrong.
Additional personality flaw: I can't have just one thing to eat, I need the whole variety available, or at least as much as i can afford.
Additional combat flaw: Dislikes weapons commonly used only uses his trusty cleaver. (If forced to use any other weapon he has a -4 to hit).
One skill with anti-proficiency: Animal Handling Animals tend to be very nervous around Lyle, maybe because he always wants to find new ways of cooking them. (disadvantage on any animal handling checks)

Appearance: Lyle is pretty average for his kind. He is only three feet tall and a bit overweight due to his sampling everything he cooks or anyone else does for that matter. He had reddish brown hair and large sideburns. His eyes are the color of emeralds and seem to sparkle in the firelight especially when he is cooking. HE always has his cooking utensils on him just in case they are needed, as well as his large cleaver.

Personality: Lyle is outgoing and curious especially when it comes to cooking or preparing anything. he will go out of his way to learn a new recipe or create a new dish. When around other cooks he is in his happy place learning new dishes from others as well as sharing his own. He is very focused when it comes to preparing a dish and while open to suggestions is offended if someone dislikes whatever it is he has prepared and will stoutly defend the dish. Of course he only serves his best to others. He is quick to make friends and slow to lose them, he is trusting of those he calls friend almost to a fault.

Backstory:
-The story (try to keep it short) Lyle never intended to be a soldier and truth be told he wasn't all that good at it. Still he had little choice being pushed into service. He hated the basic training they gave him and he was quite terrible at wielding anything other than his cleaver. As a result he was stationed as a cook staying in the camp and preparing meals for those who did the fighting. Many of the others in basic training with him thought he was about useless as a soldier, but once he started cooking for them came around, finally seeing what he actually was good at.

Even with the limited ingredients available being on the move Lyle always thought of a creative way to add flavor to his dishes and among his company was well liked for his cooking, if nothing else.

-How did you die? Lyle was killed during a battle as usual he remained in the rears of the company. Unfortunately his comrades failed to hold the line and the enemy broke through into the encampment. Lyle was busy preparing the meal at the time, and as the enemy moved in several horses panicked and tried to flee, the first kicked the stew pot over onto Lyle scalding him briefly before the second trampled him underfoot.

-What deity sent you to the new world? (any pantheon) Yondalla

-Why are you trying to be a hero? Why not, especially if it means I get to travel and learn new dishes from various places in the world. Not to mention his own fame will grow as a chef by sharing his dishes abroad.

Name: Wallace McWhiskers

Race: Human (Variant) / Cat

Age: 16 (1 cat year)

Class: Rogue (Arcane Trickster)

Background: Urchin

Personality traits: 1) I like to squeeze into small places where no one else can get to me.
2) I think anyone whoís nice to me is hiding evil intent.

Ideals: I help the people who help me ó thatís what keeps us alive.

Bonds: No one else should have to endure the hardships Iíve been through.

Flaws: I will never fully trust anyone other than myself.

Additional personality flaw: I wake up early and I insist that everyone else wakes up at the same time as me.

Additional combat flaw: Wallace canít wield weapons or armor, and he canít (or wonít) carry anything.

Gear: Collar of protection (+1 AC, +1 Saving Throws - see Cloak of Protection)

One skill with anti-proficiency: Intimidation. Letís face it, even though Wallace might threaten to kill you for not giving him that piece of chicken, itís hard to take him seriously.

Appearance: Wallace looks like a grouchy potato with ears and a tail. Heís a young tabby who can often be found sleeping in a patch of sun. Although he doesnít look very graceful, he can be nimble and sneaky when he wants to be. His markings help him hide, particularly in underbrush or the dark. He has an acute sense of hearing and is a good hunter, although he has never enjoyed killing other animals with his claws. He prefers to be fed from the table.

Personality: Wallace is usually annoyed about something. Why havenít we eaten yet? Why is it raining? Why are you making me walk? And so on. He is quite fond of his friends and acquaintances, and he relies on them for food and warmth. Although he can be a pain, Wallace genuinely tries to help his friends and is attached to them. However, when Wallace sits by the fire glowering into the darkness, one does wonder what he is thinking about.

Wallace can be a little bit paranoid. One moment heís curled on your lap asleep, and the next moment heís a flash of fur bolting out of the room. I thought I heard something, he says upon his return. Or rather, he sends that thought to you - Wallace is telepathic. And he enjoys letting the people around him know what heís thinking.

Backstory: Wallace wasnít always a cat. Long ago, he was a boy. Wallace something or other. And he lived on the streets. He had been abandoned or maybe run away - the details are fuzzy now - and had survived by stealing food and picking pockets. Occasionally, he would sneak into peopleís homes and take a few things, mostly small things. His life was going very well, as far as he was concerned, until one day when he was caught snooping through someoneís larder.

As Wallace stood with a mouthful of bread, he thought he heard a sound behind him. Spinning around, he stood face to face with an elderly gentleman. He was about to run when all at once, there was puff and bang and a whooshing sensation and the next thing he knew he was a cat. Or almost a cat. For he still had his memories, and he could still understand what people said.

"Who are you?" the man asked him. Wallace, sir, he replied. And to his amazement he found that could still speakÖ or think? He was speaking with his mind. "Very well, Wallace McWhiskers. And who are your parents?". I doní have any parents, sir, Wallace replied. The old man considered for a moment and then said, "I suppose you can stay with me then," and walked out of the room. And so Wallace became a cat. And he found that he rather enjoyed being a cat. It wasnít that different from his life before, only now he had a guaranteed meal and a warm place to sleep.

As the days passed by, Wallace became more and more cat-like and began to forget what it was like to be a boy. Where is my dinner? he would ask the old gentleman each night, all pretense of politeness dropped. And he would sit on the kitchen table and meow loudly to make his point.

Perhaps some of the magic had rubbed off on him in the process of becoming a cat, for Wallace found that he had some other newfound abilities. For example, he found that he could hunt with his mind and that just by thinking hard enough and whispering a few noises, he could kill his prey with a blast of mental energy. He sometimes hunted rats this way, but soon found that he preferred cooked chicken with butter to things he caught himself.

Just as Wallace was growing fond of being a cat, with his belly growing rounder day by day, his blissful life was cut short. One afternoon, he decided to take a nap in a patch of sun behind the elderly gentlemanís wagon. He never even felt it when the wagon backed up. So ended the promising life of Wallace McWhiskers.

Or so he thought. Mask, the god of shadows and thieves, had other plans for Wallace. For a moment after he died, Wallace stood in Plane of Shadow with Mask stooped low before him whispering, "Go back - I am not done with you. The man you live with - Johek he is called - he has something that belongs to me. Bring me the manís silver ring!" Wallace looked quizzically at Mask, but before he could reply, there was a rush of wind and he found himself moving toward a light at the end of a tunnel, and then he was back in his own yard sitting next to the wagon.

When he returned, Wallace was in no hurry to find the ring or to meet Mask again. He slipped away in the night to look for a new family.
