    -----------------------
    Personal Info:
    -----------------------
    Name: Viktor Grimm
    Nickname: Lightbringer
    Age: Around 200 years
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Heterosexual
    Species: Elf
    Alignment: Neutral
    -----------------------
    Appearance:
    -----------------------
    Height: 6'3 ft.
    Skin/Fur/Scales, Etc.: Pale skin
    Eyes: Orange
    Hair: Viktor has long white hair which makes him look a little feminine. It falls a long ways down his back and past his waist.
    Looks: Due to his Elven heritage, Viktor Grimm has sort of an ethereal look about him and frequently moves with grace. He also has pointy ears, which may rouse mockery. He keeps a formal posture often, standing with a straight back and shoulders. He wears simple attire while lounging around or travelling, which mainly consists of light shades, although sometimes he may wear black. When on a mission or in combat, however, Viktor wears long robes that are white in color and drag the ground behind him as he walks.
    ---------------------
    Specialties
    ---------------------
    Strengths/skills:
    ~Viktor Grimm is good at the art of persuasion and negotiation.
    ~Due to his many years of life, Viktor is also wise, although short tempered.
    ~Viktor is good at healing and tending to wounds and illnesses. Don't expect him to perform surgery, though.
    ~He is a decent cook as well.
    Weaknesses/Flaws:
    ~As much as he hates to admit it, Viktor is gullible.
    ~He is also afraid of the dark and will not set a foot in a shadow, even if he has a light source.
    ~Viktor is a very picky eater. This means he's slow when he's eating a meal or just nibbling on a snack.
    ~Since he wears long sleeves, he's more likely to get a stroke when in hot environments.
    ~He doesn't wear armor either, which makes him vulnerable.

    Special Abilities:

    Viktor Grimm has mana to keep an eye on. Mana is magical energy that can be converted into special abilities. The amount of mana he has will be updated as topics go on, appearing in a note at the end of posts. He starts out with 1500. The amount he regains per post is listed below.

    Not using spells/mana: +150
    Using spells/mana: +75

    When Viktor runs out of mana, he must resort to his melee weapon (which will be made in another app) to defend himself.

    Thank you to Lex for helping me come up with these abilities!

    Defensive Abilities

    Light Shield: Viktor Grimm summons a light barrier to materialize around an ally. The purpose of the shield is to reduce the cooldown of said ally's ability by one post. It will be used on the ability that was most recently used, but this isn't effective on Ultimate Abilities, like those that can only be used once per topic. Viktor can only summon one shield at a time and can use one of these once every three posts. Mana Cost: 100

    Basically a Magic Flashlight: This ability allows Viktor to summon a small sphere of light that is the size of a regular basketball. The ball floats in the air and follows around Viktor or an ally in order to provide light for dark areas. It fades away after five posts, but Viktor can use his own magic to destroy it if it's no longer needed. Like the first ability, he can only summon one of these at a time, once every two posts. Mana Cost: 25

    Elemental Fury: When a friend in battle is exhausted or in a bad place, Viktor can cast this spell that gives them a burst of energy. It also lets them go faster. This means that they can run faster and attack faster. This is different than reducing the cooldown for abilities though, since the spell plays no effect at all on the abilities of others. It works for simple attacks, like a simple swing of a sword or a shot from a gun. This lasts for only a post though, and at the end of said post then the character would return to their previous exhausted state. When running, the character can go 5 more mph faster than their original speed, and the attack speed depends on the original speed of the character's weapon. Reload times for guns are shorter, and swords feel lighter on the hand. He can use this spell once every four posts. Mana Cost: 250

    Ultimate Defense: Viktor's ultimate is the ability to summon a powerful shield of light around himself or an ally. The shield is very powerful and can withstand a handful of attacks. However, if used against an ultimate attack, then the shield and attack will cancel out. (Ultimate Defense vs. Ultimate Offense = Cancel out, right?) It basically ignores petty attacks, but abilities weaken the shield considerably. The shield lasts for two posts. If Viktor is knocked out, harmed, or stripped of concentration, then the shield will end sooner. This ability can only be used once per topic. Mana Cost: 1000

    Offensive Abilities:

    Light Spheres: Viktor can summon spheres of light the size of a tennis ball and throw them at enemies. The attack doesn't do a lot of damage. It can't dent armor or anything, but it has the potential to give someone a small burn if they're wearing normal clothes. This can be used once every two posts. Mana Cost: 30

    Beam: Viktor shoots a beam of light from his hands that has the same effect as his Light Spheres, but instead act as a ray that can effect multiple people at once. It has a width of three feet and can shoot as far as fifteen feet. It can do a little more damage than the spheres and can give more painful burns, but nothing deadly. It can't affect armor. Can be used once every three posts. Mana Cost: 50
    ---------------------
    Personality:
    ---------------------
    Personality: As Elves are often perceived as graceful and patient, Viktor is a spectacle among his kind in terms of personality. He takes no shit from anybody and is rather impatient and short-tempered. He speaks formally with long words, which can be the subject of ridicule. It can also come across as him trying to act high and mighty. Despite being swift to anger, Viktor isn't intentionally mean or rude. But he's not exactly friendly and all sunshine and rainbows either. Rather, Viktor is a mellow and aloof entity who is basically agreeable to anything that seems morally good to him. He is also sort of demanding and enjoys respect, even though he knows he won't be bowed down to or anything within his Guild. If he were a king, he would not be the monarch who would modestly tell his people to stand when they bow. Rather, he would encourage it. He would bask in their grovelling.

    Even though he's aloof, it can be noted that Viktor is not without a heart. He is charitable and considerate, especially to those he considers friends. He would comfort a crying person even if he didn't know them and he would give money to the poor. However, he is a strict mentor to have to any students searching for teachings in defensive magic. He does not place his praise blindly and foolishly. It's hard to impress him. Viktor does smile upon the morally good acts his students may do though, and he rewards it. His heart completely melts around babies and children though, and he handles them with gentleness. Contrary to the way he treats his older students, he encourages young ones frequently and often gives them prizes. Despite giving out praise sparingly, Viktor enjoys being praised and positively acknowledged. He likes gifts from time to time as well and lets you know he is very grateful.

    Heya there~! I think that you should increase the mana that you gain per post. :3 Maybe a recharge of 150 mana per post when he's not using anything, and a recharge of 75 when he's using magic? I think something like that would be fair.

    Something else to consider are cooldowns. I need you to put in some cooldowns for your abilities which don't have any <3 Just remember, the 'weaker' the spell, the more readily that you can use it :)

    After you've done this, I'll continue to tackle the rest of the app in a new light after you bump it up ;D

    Okay, I dun goofed with the mana recharge thing ;v;

    Could you please change it once more to gain 50 while using spells, and 100 otherwise?

    Just a few things with your abilities though..

    With the shield to reduce cooldowns, perhaps increase the mana cost to 250? As someone who knows what they are doing with this can be deadly. Also, maybe have it so that it doesn't reduce cooldowns below 1 post! Or you could have people spamming it to no end.

    With your ultimate ability/shield, could you perhaps include what are considered to be petty attacks? ;v;

    I would recommend increasing the tennis ball throwing capability to something like 1-8 each use, (at a cost of 30 per orb used), and not really having a cooldown. As you can use this to spam, but really, if you just hit clothing it doesn't really do anything much aside from a light burn. Plus they can be dodged. With this, also include how fast he can throw them D:

    I also just wanted to ask, did you want a healing spell at all with this?

    That's all for this time ;v;
