Introduction
Welcome! You've found your way into Donatello's Cirque de Rire. I am the Ringmaster, Donatello - but you can call me Tello. I've created this traveling circus so that all those freaks- erm, excuse me, I mean.. so that the abnormal people in this world can have a home and show off what they've become. I welcome all!

Story
It's the Victorian era, and for some reason, you've decided to join a circus. Tello is making a very large circus out of profit. He seems like a nice man, but he really isn't. He's twisted in every sort of way and he's willing to do whatever he can to get cold, hard cash. He's killed many and tortured more. If you piss him off, you'll be hanging in the butcher's cart. Beware!
Rules
Be respectful
No cybering
I am the almighty one here
Must be literate, but I don't want your life story. Just a paragraph or two.
No killing unless you have permission
The more descriptive you are the better
Be freaky!
I encourage romance
Take some hits
What Tello says goes. You can disobey him, but you'll be whipped.
Don't kill Tello. HE IS SUPERIOR bwaahhahaa yeah.
Cursing is aloud sometimes, as long as it's not in every sentence and you may not drop the F bomb.
Out with the cliche! Spice it up a bit smile
Three characters per person
Not all circus performers are female.. We need some dudes!
If your desired act is not in the description, you can make up your own and send it to me! Just.. No vampires/werewolves/sparklecrap/magicaljizz/witches/wizards because that's totally unrelated to circuses. ANY OF THAT KAY THX BAI

Username: mickeyc123
Name: Tello
Appearance: User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.
Age: 22
Act: Ringmaster
History: Tello wasn't always so mean. He was an orphan living on the streets once upon a time. A young girl outstretched her hand to him, inviting him to live with her and her father. Her name was Charlotte. They fell in love soon after and got engaged. But one day, Charlotte's father came home to tell them that they were broke. There was a drought that killed all of his crops and there was no way to save the family. Tello was outraged. "You saved me, so I'm going to save you," he told Charlotte. He founded a circus at the age of 17. It was filled with people, very talented people. But nobody came. The money wasn't in his hands. He had an idea. Why not create a freak show? So he mutilated every one of his performers. It brought attention to the circus and soon bunches of people all over town came. Soon they found out what Tello had done, so he had to take Charlotte and run. Charlotte was stressed out. Her sweet little giggle hadn't been heard in months. "Don't worry, Char, we'll make another circus," Tello smiled. "A circus of laughter, just for you." He was blinded by love and greed that he didn't understand that Charlotte was afraid of him.

Username: Cerulean_Moon
Name: Priscilla
Appearance: User Image
Age: 21
Act: Tightrope Walker
History: Priscilla grew up with two rich parents in a thriving town where everyone knew her and her strange love. It wasn’t her love of dancing that made her strange, in fact, her dancing is what made her popular with the other children and nobles. What made her parents worry and the town gossip, was the fact that she loved to dance in high places. Priscilla always had a love of heights and when she one day began to dance on the roof, she fell in love with that too. Her parent’s tried to stop her from dancing in high places, in fear she was going to hurt herself but as she got older, Priscilla began to disobey them more and more; her love for heights and dancing growing stronger each time she was told “no.” When she was 19 she left everything behind in search of a place free from rules. She found it at the circus and has been there ever since, dancing and walking on the tightrope, amazing all and with no one to tell her no.

Username: Vinyl Amnesia

Name: Cheshire, simply cheshire

Appearance:User Image {
Age: Unknown

Act: Plain ol' freak
History: He has adapted to his life in the circus, being there since he was very small, and cursed by what lied within, he harbors vanishing skills; can appear or disappear at will, fully or just random parts of his body. Does this mostly for pranks; though it does come in handy in dangerous situations. Has a very keen sense of sight and hearing, especially at night. he's also very quiet and sneaky on his limbs. He however isn't that intelligent, so he happens to get spotted very frequently by passing by humans whom has the bravery to pass through his domain. Strangely he has an adverse affect on those whom look him head on, making the looker feel uneasy and even frightened, and in some cases, amazed.

Huggable Overlord Nyx
Username: Huggable Overlord Nyx
Name: Jinx
Appearance: User Image
Age: 17
Act: Jinx works mostly as an assistant of many talents, as her skills range from illusions to acrobatics, when performing in an act of her own the only real way to label it is being an entertainer.
History: Jinx was an abandoned baby, left in the streets to die. Though as fate would have it the circus was in town and they found the small baby. There was much debating before finally the circus chose to take her in to raise as their own. Jinx grew up happily, never really minding that she didn’t technically have parents. Of course living with the circus, Jinx has always been training with different acts, since a very young age and has been exposed to all kinds of bizarre things. She began doing shows regularly around five years old, being featured in different acts of many varieties. As she grew her skill did as well, Jinx trained every day, though in the perspective of the young girl, she was just having fun. Eventually Jinx became one of the star performers of many talents. Their humble little circus became quite famous for its joyful acts and dark intrigue all wrapped up with a little charm. It seemed though things weren’t meant to last forever. When she was sixteen, in the middle of a show tragedy struck, a great circus had a great fall. A few performers, including their beloved ringmaster died that day.
The circus performers did their best to stay together, but they all had to split up somewhat. It was then Jinx realized just how little she knew of normal life. The little circus girl knew nothing of a regular daily routine, only circus life. It made this new development especially difficult on her and she couldn’t seem to find a place in society. Luckily Jinx heard of another circus that still had use for new performers, so after getting the encouragement she needed from her very large family, she set out on her own to join the circus.

Username: Ivory Ruin
Name: Masky, or so he is called

Age: 17
Act: Plain ol' freak

History: His appearance under his mask is generally normal, however, he is rarely seen without it. He is extremely shy, and very unsociable. He hates to be stared directly at, so he often fidgets and moves quite continuously. His voice is soft and usually spaced out, although audible. Despite his gentle appearance, he's taken his share of lives in his time. He is quite skinny, yet muscular, due to the constant of force of his body to extremes. He always needed a refuge, somewhere he could simply live his life without fear...the circus.. yes.. perfect.

Username: Pookie The Pirate
Name: Dinah Lensworth
Appearance: User Image
Age: 25
Act: Fire Breather
History: Dinah was different from the start. She was born deaf which had been a burden to her family and frustrating for Dinah herself. Over the years she had learned how to lip read and even mimic the way her family conversed. She could pull off a conversation with normal hearing people. To them she just sounded like some foreigner.

Everything changed when there was an explosion at the local textile factory. For the first time in her life Dinah could hear what everyone else heard, and she watched the flames as they licked up the building. She became obsessed with explosives and flames from then on, trying to regain what she felt that day. Eventually this earned her a job as a fire breather at the Cirque du Rire. She prefers to hide her disability, but it is known to Tello, Charlotte, and her good friend Gatsby.

Relationship/crush:None


Username: Pookie The Pirate
Name: James Gatsby (goes by Gatsby)
Appearance:User Image
Age: 23
Act: Clown
History: Gatsby was born into a well known blue blood family. He was raised to be a proper young stuffy gentleman, which drove him crazy. His parents found him a hopeless mess so they cut him off and let him into the real world to "find himself" and realize that home wasn't as bad as he thought it was.

Gatsby figured the circus was the best way to truly travel while earning some money. He loves to put smiles and blushes on all the pretty ladies' faces. His good friend is Dinah and his playful attitude is sometimes troublesome to others.

Relationship/crush:Any pretty face that passes his way
