Plot: The study of magic has always been a dangerous field where only the
bravest and most talented magi dwell. To help advance their understanding of the
source of magic, the League of Nations setup the Leore Research Institute of
Magical Development at the sacred Fount of Maxium. Lunin Hailstorm is a young
monk from the secular nation of Jhostim who was known for his sharp
understanding and affinity for fire magic. Now, Lunin goes to the Leore Insitute
as the first magi from Jhostim in seven decades. What awaits him will test his
resolve as finds himself rapidly spiraling into a world of love, politics, and
Setting: The world is (politically) modeled after a 1960s Western Europe. Magic was discovered around the time of the Industrial Revolution and has slowly been integrated into society. The world has been pitched through several wars recently between the nations of Mopil and Termillia, resulting in strenuous relations between many signatory members of the League of Nations. While the world now is at peace, it is only a matter of time before a spark will set the tinder ablaze once more. At the heart of the cold war is the small southern island that holds the world's premier institute of magical development.
Every character has two poses and six outfits (1 lab, 3 casual, 1 formal, and 1 swimsuit)
Name: Lunin Hailstorm
Bio: A young monk from the Holy City of Jhostim. As Jhostim is a recent
signatory to the League of Nations and previously isolated state, Lunin has a hard time trusting any other researcher. However, as a dedicated and professional researcher,
he attempts to make things work.
Name: Lily Ruebellum
Bio: Lily is a researcher who has spent most of her life in the frontier studying
new plants and animals. While socially awkward, she means well and tries her
best to help out her fellow researchers. However, her naivety often leaves her
prey to the researchers who want nothing more than her data to advance their own
Bio: Sophia is a street urchin that grew up on the streets of the town near the
research station. Sophia lost her eyesight as a young child and resorts to
using her weak wind magic to help her get around. Growing up completely
dependent on the mercy and often cruelty of others, Sophia keeps to herself.
When she is given an offer by Lunin to join him as an assistant,
she is leery and distrusting.
Name: Ellen Kinolio
Bio: The heiress of a massive trading company and the daughter of a ruler of a
city-state near the frontier. Ellen was a childhood friend of Lunin after she spent a
summer in Jhostim as part of an exchange program. Ellen is very outspoken and bull-headed,
often putting her at odds with anyone she meets. While bright and clever, Ellen works
solo because few people have the patience to put up with her abrasive nature and
high-tempo work schedule.
Name: Miyani Silversword
Bio: Miyani is a covert agent of the Mopil Republic, a small republic that has
recently suffered a war that almost completely destroyed the small nation.
Miyani was sent to Leore to acquire any magical data that might be able to help
them develop a weapon to protect their nation. Miyani was more than happy to do
so, ecstatic for the chance to use all her wiles and guile to cajole, seduce, or
simply steal anything that might protect her homeland.
Name: Katrina Onethon
Bio: A very famous researcher known for her advancement in developing
electronics that could run off of electric magic. However, few know that she's
also an eccentric madwoman who develops devices that explode more often
than they work. Katrina is a very cheerful, very optimistic woman who often lets her
crazy idea slip into the work that she is contracted to do, oft with
Name: Professor Winter Ulric
Bio: A former researcher with the Termillia until she got tired of
constantly being question for her often-controversial attempts at using light
magic to alter both the human body and mind. Winter claims that nobody
understands what she could do. After the chancellor gave her the choice to either
join Leore as a tenured professor or go to prison for life, Winter grudgingly accepted the post.
However, Winter refuses to research anything that she doesn't want to and
flaunts it Leore's leadership, taunting them to try sending her back.
Name: Tomas Ithor
Bio: A former child prodigy who was once considered to be one of the sharpest minds of the magic world.
When an experiment went wrong and took the life of his wife, Tomas fell into despair and drink. Now, he
resides at Leore as one of the tenured researchers and adviser to the younger researchers. Sadly, Tomas doesn't
do a lot of research or advising anymore, spending most of his time in his office drinking and reflecting on his glory days.
Name: Dominique Rvana
Bio: Meet Undersecretary of Magical Development and Understanding Dominique Rvana. He's a sweet,
but serious man who is put in charge of managing Leore. While he doesn't have any magical powers,
he's giving it his all to devulge the deepest mysteries of magic. Dominique might also be
the older brother of another Termillian researcher...
Bio: One of the many robed servants who work at Leore.
