    My almost done character. Just need to fix the description and some help with the elemental power would be nice. How abstract can they be? Is music good? Maybe Instrumental Music, or is that too... niche?

    Name: Elin Österson

    Age: 12 years

    Grade: 1, Junior high school

    Hair Color: Blond

    Eye Color: Blue

    Appearance: Image

    Pretty Cure Name: Cure Sonata

    Pretty Cure Hair Color: Dark blond

    Pretty Cure Eye Color: Blue

    Pretty Cure Appearance: Image

    Favorite Elemental Power: Water

    Likes: Music, fluffy animals, Yurika

    Dislikes: Insects, anger

    Personality (Make it 2-5 sentences here): Friendly and always with a smile, Elin does her best to help others. She has a tendency to become too focused on what she works on and not notice her surroundings. She loves music and plays the piano and listens to music for hours at home.

    Back Story: Her mom is Åsa Österson, 27 years old teacher. A strict woman who somehow managed to juggle both studies and taking care of Elin. Elin’s dad is not known, some guy Åsa had a one-night stand with and didn’t notice the pregnancy before it was too late to abort. Despite the circumstances around her conception Åsa still loves Elin dearly. They moved from Sweden to Comnet city when Åsa’s girlfriend Haruka Hiyama was given an invitation to work there and when they found a work opening for Åsa. Elin is close with Åsa, but not as close with Haruka. Even if they are friendly they don’t have much in common.

    Contacts:
    Hiyama Haruka: Åsa’s girlfriend. A rogue-ish and happy network administrator, Haruka gives a somewhat haphazard impression but she’s surprisingly dependable. As adult and child, they’re not really close, Elin thinks of her as “mom’s friend”. But Haruka helps Elin now and then when she can too.

    Ikeda Ayano: Elin’s classmate. Likes games and has a cynical mind. She appreciates Elin’s friendship but also thinks that she’s too friendly towards everyone. Member of the going home club.

    I would like you to not use sound or music as an element, as it overlaps with wind and music is one of the three motifs of this series (besides cyber and elemental). But that is just aesthetics. I can make it work if you want your character to have a music element. I would suggest water or snow based on her blue outfit.

    Otherwise, I think your character is really good as is. The character is really cool.

    @Blight Gecko, I think I've finalized mine, could you give it a look over?

    I've just modified eye color, the element and the NPC's background.

    Zaranoth, your character is almost passable! I need that personality though. A little bit more one your contact character would be nice too.

    Name: Yurika Wakahisa

    Age (8-18): 14 years.

    Grade: Third year, junior high school.

    Hair Color: Black

    Eye Color: Black

    Appearance: Slightly on the tall side. Hair long, hime cut. Prefer semi-formal clothes for daily wear.

    Pretty Cure Name: Cure Cantata

    Pretty Cure Hair Color: Blonde

    Pretty Cure Eye Color: Purple

    Pretty Cure Appearance: Hair become ringlet curl, growing much longer. Dress is red, with white frills and wide skirts.

    Favorite Elemental Power: Electricity.

    Likes: Tea, singing, computer, Elin.

    Dislikes: Badly-prepared tea, substandard service, blue screen.

    Personality (Make it 2-5 sentences here): Yurika is calm and methodical, with noted aversion to impulsive behavior. She is friendly but aloof, preferring to look from afar at first before making any relationship attempt.

    Yurika has a fondness for singing and tweaking computer device, but she consider the latter to be mildly embarrassing and won’t brought it up.

    Yurika is very image-conscious, always want to know what others think of her. She never completely relaxed, unless she is with her close friends.

    She never shies away from achieving what she wanted, though she’s rarely impulsive about it. Nevertheless, she can come across as overbearing.

    Back Story: Yurika was born as the daughter of Hiroki and Keiko Wakahisa, a corporate power-couple. Her childhood is fairly standard, if a bit lonely - Hiroki and Keiko tend to keep full hours, though they do keep weekend free for Yurika. Yurika is enrolled to best school, and received best education. Her computer hobbies comes from her trying to understand her father, and to her surprise, she appears to inherit his aptitude.

    Her friends gave her weird look when she says it, though. It clashed with her images, apparently.

    When Comnet City project is announced, she is interested. Her parents debated leaving her, but she managed to persuade them to bring her as well.

    Yurika doesn’t quite grow-up in Comnet, no, but she is one of its earliest inhabitants. She knows Comnet City well, and has watched it grew, and consider it as her home. She is involved with Student Council, though nobody entirely sure what her role is.

    Hiroki Wakahisa - The partially disgraced son of Wakahisa family, Hiroki went against main family wishes and tries his hand at computing business. It went down during dot-com crash. (Un)fortunately, it is bought by another company, who later become one of the founder of Comnet city. Hiroki himself rises through the rank, meeting and failling in love with Keiko on the way. Currently, he is the CTO of the company.

    He subscribes to ‘Work Hard, Play Hard’ ethos. Thus, he only saw Yurika on her weekend - where they spend the whole day, playing together.

    Keiko Wakahisa - Keiko is a daughter of middle-class family. She achieves high scores in school, and - for seemingly arbitrary reason - decided to become lawyer. It’s a tough road - so tough, in fact, she accepted a job in the company as legal expert, and loves it so much she never pursued her lawyer goal.

    Keiko is is confident, capable, and ponders whether she should retire and take care of Yurika full time. She likely won’t do it, though.

    Contacts:
    Kimiko Durant - The Student Council President, at least for Junior-High portion. Yurika and her shares antagonistic, yet close friendship. … in short, they are friendly rival.

    Kimiko is goal-oriented, with fastidious attention to detail.

    Zhang Xaoming - Proprietor of rather shady, somewhat cheap electronic part, he is Yurika’s preference for getting what she need to fulfill her hobbies. Likes to make bad jokes. May or may not uses fake names.

    Yurika isn’t sure how he manages to secure his store, since it’s inside a mall. She speculates he has some sort of connection.

    Kyou Abe - The President of Wind Instrument Club, she organize orchestra and plays mean trumpet. She shares love of music with both Yurika and Elin, and their main go-to people if they want to relax.

    Kyou is reconciliatory, and dislike conflict.

    -----------------

    I'll probably add more Contact, but this sheet is serviceable for now.

    It is pretty nice. More contact would be cool, but I accept your character as is. If you excuse me, I will be trying to see how to fit all these characters together. It is important for a GM to have his notes.

    Your character is acceptable. Welcome to the team, Nekraa.





    Gah! I hope I am done with writing my story soon! I am struggling to know where to begin. Question: would you guys like to be teleported into Power Rangers style? Or do you have some other suggestion on how you should become a magical girl?

    If it's not obvious, Yurika and Elin already knew each-other. ...haven't set how they know, though.

    How to be Pretty Cure? Well, classic getting attacked and transform, maybe. Or, hmm.

    Maybe monsters come, and fairy gives us all transformation device? Because everyone else run away?

    No, it is not immediately obvious;, other than the similar Pretty Cure names.

    I would like you all to be in the same place when you transform into superheroes and the monsters attack... so do your characters go to any arcades?

    Here's a question. Are we fighting the monsters in the real world or some sort of digital world/alternate plane of existence?

    My idea is that the main villains are a group of characters from an old arcade game that were brought to life through mysterious circumstances. The monsters of the week are called Smaugram, an amalgamation of program and Smaug (the dragon from the Hobbit). So basically, they are all literally video game characters brought to life.

    Yeah, I can see Yurika interested in arcade. Though she'll try to appear not very interested, of course~

    And them having each other in their likes :oops:

    But that's easy to miss.

    As for the transformation and first meeting I'm not really knowledgable about precure, but I'm open to most things?

    Okay. Well, if you want all the characters to meet in an arcade I suppose that works.

    Alternatively, if it make more sense for them to be spread out, perhaps the smaugrams could operate similarly to XANA from Code Lyoko if you're familiar with that? I can explain in more detail if not.

    :confused: Whoops. That was a major oversight on my part. Sorry!

    I can always help you get acquainted to the series. Usually, the main character gets their powers first, then each episode after has the next character join up. Then, at the halfway point of the series, the sixth ranger Precure appears.

    I can help you to become more knowledgeable about Pretty Cure, if you will let me. You can PM for any question you have about the series. I'd be happy to explain.

    I am vaguely familiar with Code Lyoko, but it has been a while since I have seen the show though. I thought it would be easy for your characters to be introduced to each other right away.

    Okay... here is how it would go: the main villain would attack the arcade, causing the transformation devices to appear on the main characters' arms. They would fight the monster, defeat it, then they might meet up together or something. Yeah, I think I have an understanding of how this will work.





    The henshin devices, by the way.

    Basically, when it is time to transform, it will go something like this.

    Watch: Username - [Cure Name]
    Password?


    You: Pretty Cure Data Stream!

    Watch: Complete.

    What time is it in the arcade?

    You can make my chara have been walking home from shopping household necessity and dinner ingredients.

    Also, what kind of retail chain restaurants usually shows up in Pretty Cure? For Yuuno's big brother place.

    I was thinking some time around 5 PM on a Sunday. That would be the only day in which the characters had no school, and they would be able to meet together. Your well deserved breaks would be interrupted by monster attacks.

    As for the Pretty Cure, I don't that there are any retail chain restaurants, but I think MgRonalds would be a good fit.

    Character sheet should be okay now, I think. Let me know if it needs more backstory or personality. I made hanging out at the arcade as thing Yomiko and Milla do, so that it fits nicely with your scenerio.

    Well, I have had one helluva week. I am hoping to finish getting them down either tomorrow or Monday. I will not lie, I have been getting distracted recently by SV quests. But I think I am over that now.

    In any case, I do have the main villain, a few ideas for monster of the week designs, and a fairy partner NPC. I just need to find out what the heck I want the plot's direction to go. That said, I know my villain has a simple goal in mind, so I cannot go wrong there.

    The problem right now is that I need to make sure Comnet City comes to life. Fitting everything together takes priority.

    Hey guys. Sorry for being so tardy... long story short, my week was a lot busier than I thought it would be. But... I have all your NPCs plugged into my database and am in the process of getting this data memorized. I am also working on a few monsters you will be fighting. I need to plan for my end game though. According to what you voted for, you want a mission where you protect a VIP and defeat monsters, so that means that a) the monsters are going to be doing something harmful beyond just being giant monsters and b) a VIP NPC is going to be introduced. The question is, what kind of game do you want to do? Slice-of-life? Action-adventure? Anything at all?
