Been a long time since I have visited Deviantart and here I am up for another round for Roleplays. . Meet my OC Ngoc Lan. Some may have already known Lan from my trio, but right now, this is her human form and is not or has some slight similarities to her original counterpart.
WIP - To do this weekend or within the weekName:
Pendant (in the form of a shell) -> Spinel Necklace (core)MA-App-NgocLan-Refs-1Age:
VietnameseHistory:"Flowers don't grow in the dark." - Yasmin
Lan is the only daughter of a lower middle class family. Ever since she was a child, she has been given high expectations by her parents. Being as she is, she accepts this responsibility and works hard to excel with whatever she has. However, she wasn't able to excel in the field of communicating and mingling with her peers. She manages to find friends in Yasmin and Qing, who helped her get out of her shell, enjoy life more, and bloom, later on.
As she grew up, she realized she had developed a liking for music and performing arts and asked her parents to let her study these. However, her parents laughed over her wish and refused her this opportunity, saying she should just concentrate on her studies. She reluctantly agrees to this but still has that desire to pursue it.
Yasmin, hurt that her best friend is going through such troubles, asks Lan. "Please perform for me?". Lan agrees to this but she always puts it off, because she wants it to be perfect. The only thing Lan didn't know was that Yasmin was very sick and was going to be hospitalized soon. Personality:
A stick-in-the-mud. Organized. Always analyzing and aiming for the best results. Lan always strives to please and be a good girl so as not to cause trouble to anyone around her. Even so, she does have a good head on her shoulders and knows what is right from wrong.
She can appear very aloof and cold at first but she will learn to warm up to you, if she feels comfortable enough and that you are on her side. She can be seen as quiet and an introvert, but she won't shy away from challenges or duties.
Lan is a dependable, observant, trustworthy and a sharp individual who can be blunt and speak as she likes, but, most of the time, she does have good intentions. Although she may appear as strong-minded, she can also become emotional and want to be with others. Weapon:
Plasma Whip/Light Saber MA-App-NgocLan-Refs-2
- on one end of the weapon; requires energy/ions to keep flowing
- more stable version (by time) of her weapon and can last longer than her other weapon
- doesn't require too much heat or energy to keep ionized (Non-Thermal, only portion of the gases are ionized, the ions are held at low temperature)
- acts like a one-tailed whip, so damage is basically cuts and burns.
- can be used for immobilization
- on the other end of the weapon, with the blunt material; requires more energy to be held stable and it needs a certain shape to follow through.
- If no energy is flowing, it's simply a blunt conducting material (can be used for defense).
- less stable version (by time) of her weapon and can last only 120-150 seconds; Can be reactivated after 15 seconds cool down
- requires heat and energy to keep ionized and concentrated (Thermal - requires to keep the electrons and heavy particles in thermal equilibrium)
- acts like a solid material but still cannot slash right through materials, only through flesh. (Lan can increase the temperature, thereby making it more concentrated to cause more damage)
- length can be increased or decreased in length, but cannot take the form of another shape or weapon.
Note: The two cannot be used at the same time. Skills:
Power: Plasma Manipulation (Plasma - ionized state of matter; does not have any shape but can easily be affected by electromagnetic fields; Thermal Plasma (Saber), Non-Thermal Plasma (Whip) )
Pro: Easy to shift and create ions with her weapon, lights up an area (she can ionize small amounts of air for a certain amount of time)
Con: Physical effects (e.g. burns, spazz), Energy draining, CooldownWeaknesses: (Personality-wise and skill-wise.)
Goes along with the flow of everything; Not willing to step forward to speak for herself, needs a push to do so.
A goody-two-shoes who sticks to the rules and dislikes people who don't follow through with rules or regulations.
Aloof and cold, if approached for the first time or you annoy her.
Perfectionist. Overcritical. Fussy.
Can tire easily. Needs cooldown every now and then.
May need to harvest energy from sources later on (e.g. sun)
If pushed too hard or exerted too much concentrated heat and energy, her hands will spazz and/or have burn marks even after she has reverted to deus form. It will heal after several hours.
Vulnerable if weapon is not in hand. Strengths: (Personality-wise and skill-wise.)
Meticulous, practical and analytic with her work and will make sure things will run smoothly.
Caring and helpful, like an older sister. Motherly, to a certain point. Modest with her works. Can be witty and charming if she tried.
Willing to follow through instructions. Can be bookish but she can understand and explain if asked.
Great support and forever loyal and dedicated to those close to her.
Can ionize small amounts of air just with her hand (e.g snapping fingers). It doesn't last long and just appears as a spark/ball of light. Not really useful in battle.
Agile and swift. Can "dance" her way out of physical attacks.
If attacked directly, she will use the saber for protection and offense.
The whip acts primarily to immobilize and inflict slices and burns, but not enough to damage her opponents. If willed to, Lan can increase her concentration and make the blade/whip sharp to slice deep enough.Trivia:
Lan is very fond of books and tends to want to be left alone to her books rather than socializing with people. If looking for her, she's most likely in a library. She is particularly interested in books that involve astronomy, botany, genetics and anatomy. A science-book person, particularly in Biology.
Lan is fond of coffee, but she prefers iced coffee over hot coffee.
Lan doesn't know how to swim.
Lan really does love music and performing arts, but wasn't given the chance to fully develop her skills as presented in her history. She can sing because of some voice lessons, but that's about it.
She wants to play with animals, but is scared she might hurt or scare them, so she doesn't approach them immediately.
As long as she is not annoyed while reading, she'll get along fine with anyone.
She loves the rain, especially thunderstorms.
Lan likes to tie her hair in different styles, but prefers the braids any time. Terms of Agreement:
I hereby agree that my character is an active part of the story and will accept any changes that will happen to him/her/them given that said changes were objectively designated by the admins.
