Highschool Never Ends...yeah, like the song
For 4 years now, I have been doing a study that many deem...wrong. It's a simple matter of the "Otaku world" and how other "worlds" adapt...or don't. I have since graduated and so the study must be concluded to help other people who might be facing
Aether Academy student?
Hope I do this correctly. I don't have a picture yet, but the profile part is done.

What brought you here? Well, as an Alas, it is my family's job to bring storms to the lands. We specialize in hail, but as you can imagine, we aren't called upon for that very often. Because of our abilities, we move from place to place. It can't storm all in one place all the time. I've lived just about everywhere. We used to travel from place to place and rarely stayed in one place for longer than 2 years. It was nice getting to see the different lands and see the different cultures, but it was also dangerous and so my parents decided they should settle down. Soon after settling on the west coast of North America, my father was killed and we assume eaten by some large beast. You see, he was a large man, but we found only parts of limbs and other tissue. We were in a wooded area at the time, so we figure it was some wear-beast. The only way we could tell it was him was by the pieces of clothing found nearby. My mother raised my brother and I by herself after that and moved us into the country because living there was just too painful for her. Life was simple and calm for a while. During times of great drought, my mother would sometimes help by calling in a huge rainstorm. She didn't do this often as too much rain is bad for crops. Then, when I was about 15, she said that I had begun acting strangely. I would go out at night and seem not to be myself. Soon after I would leave, large storms containing tornadoes and hail would occur, drowning fields and wrecking homes. She decided I needed to learn to control myself, but after about a year of trying to teach me herself, she decided I should go to school and learn all I could about magic. She was convinced that the experienced and well known professors at Aether could help. I sure hope so.

What do you like? I like storms and the plants that rain helps grow. Though I'm not very good at growing them myself. Someday I'd like to be better at it....which shouldn't be difficult as I kill every plant I even think of taking care of. I enjoy a good book or a good conversation, but I tend to be a little accident prone so people don't talk to me as much as I'd like.

Not so much...I don't like children....well actually...seeing children makes me hungry. I stay away from them if I can. Also, the undead terrifies me. I don't know why really as I've never had any traumatic experience with them.....maybe too many horror movies.

Powers: Well.....I can kinda fly a little.....and I can kill a plant faster than you can say herbicide....I guess that doesn't really count. I can make the largest hail you've ever seen.....just not at will. Mom says that someday, I'll be able to do it when I want to. Some day, I'll be able to fly better too and help dry places to get the water they desperately need.

You're off to a good start to me. smilies/icon_smile.gif But, I have a few things: 1) This is just me being super a**l, but could you put a space between the likes and dislikes? It just bugs me. XD

2) The back story is off to a good start, but I think you should put what an Ala is specifically in there somewhere that way readers know (i know what it is, but others might not) and can you explain why else a large beast would want to eat your character's father? Unless it was a bear or something, then just say he made the bear mad or something like that. XD

Otherwise, I see no other issues. So, great start. smilies/icon_blaugh.gif

I like her. She sounds really interesting. My only suggestion would be to add in her house and grade level since I didn't see that anywhere. Vix can help with the house thing if you're not sure. It sounds to me like she might be in Jala if my inference of Ala is correct. I'll be doing research to get a better picture in a minute, though. I agree with Chibi that it would be helpful if some information about what Ala are could be put in the background, but I think it's pretty good other than the two things I mentioned.

Well, I don't want to beat a dead horse, but a little more explanation about the beast part would be nice. Also, how did her father's death affect her? How does she feel about her brother, who is barely mentioned. And where it says race, you have an n at the end of Ala... So I thought she was an Alan... So I was confuzzled... >.<
