Monster Academy - Aristaeus. by Hiyonori-Yumiko Monster Academy - Aristaeus. by Hiyonori-Yumiko
For :iconmonsteracademy:

Name : Aristaeus

Glamor name : Chris Willingdon.

Age : 80.

Glamor age : 15

Monster type : Griffin.

Natural weapons :
-Sharp beak and talons/claws
-Super strength
-Agility

Trained weapons:
-Hand to hand combat

Grade: Freshman

Favourite class: MPE

Worst class: Human studies

Weakness:
Griffins possess no additional powers aside from their added strength, endurance and agility. As such, they can be taken down like any other animal, be it from bullets or an infected cut.

Major skills:
-Flying for hours on end without tiring. He can’t fly absurdly high, but flight is flight.
-Possesses superior strength, can rip things up with relative ease though harder materials such as rocks, metals, gems and the like barely get scratched and anything harder than steel is beyond him.
-He can make small tornadoes by flapping his huge wings.

Minor skills:
-His feathers and claws have medicinal properties. Not that he’ll let you pluck them for no reason.

Character’s Background:
Aristaeus was brought up in regular family of griffins. Relatively normal life, if you can consider learning how to fight and protect normal. At around 50 years of age, he found a mate. Sadly, his mate was found and killed by hunters twenty years later. Her body was torn apart and sold separately at auctions for absurdly high prices. Enraged, Aristaeus hunted down the ones who murdered his beloved and cut them down where the stood. Taken over by the need for revenge, he went berserk, going so far as to take down those who bought parts of his mate as well as those who were healed by his mate’s claws and feathers. Eventually, he calmed down and went into hiding for a few year, whether because he was afraid someone would chase him down in vengeance or because he was horrified at what he’d done, not even he knows. He returned home after that only to find that his entire family had left the place and all that was left was a desolate wasteland. He spent the next years simply wandering around, looking for his family and eventually giving up. Upon a mysterious invitation, he discovered Monsters Academy and, by then completely bored out of his mind and more than a little desperate for company, he’d accepted the invite.

EXTRA STUFF:

Personality:
-Over protective
-Forgetful at times
-When angered, it’s hard to calm him down. Unless you knock him out.
-People friendly when he’s not trying to get revenge.

please don't forget to change your character sheet! you've have passed all 6 previous classes and now are a Sophomore! With a new character sheet you will have to update three things. Your Grade, Your Major Skills and your Minor. You will receive 1 additional Major skill and 2 minor skills. Please note the group or contact me directly once you've finished your new application so I can replace your old one on the student files.

In addition you are now eligible for the new classes! Please view them here [link]
and register for your new classes here [link]

You can now take more than one class a semester and each semester is now 3 months long. Each month you will be required to submit a assignment per class you attend, so don't try to bog yourself down. Have a Happy new year and I hope you're doing well <3

Thanks for this reminder. Haven't been online for the past few days so I wasn't aware of the changes.

Just to tell you that now school has started for me, I'm not sure if I can finish my apps for the characters. :iconxverselet: had asked me to do a lot of her apps so I'm not sure if I can finish mine. I'm telling you in advance because I might... Not finish my somophore app on time.

You're welcome. Characters like this make me want to join groups like Monster Academy.... But I don't have enough time or skill to really draw and stuff. ^^; I don't suppose you RP, do you?

:iconhiyonori-yumiko:
Hiyonori-Yumiko Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, I see. For drawing the app or something you could just ask someone to do it. And then you can write for the group, instead if drawing. My friend did that.

I do RP, actually.

True... But I'm normally busy with stuff. Or my muse decides it's fun to give me writer's block. ^^;

And would you RP with this character outside of the group?

Ah, the block. I'm having art blocks recently.... And I feel like I need to submit something to the group... What good timing for an art block.

Yeah, sure. I'll RP him with anyone who wants to.

EmeraldDawn-16 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yup. I usually get them when writing, unless it's an RP with a friend (I don't know why, but I normally don't get blocks during RPs.).

Ok...... So can we RP then? wait.... How does he react to humans? (My favorite OC is a human, well, MOSTLY human. She's got an Undine (water fairy) for an ancestor somewhere down the line. And she's not like most humans. Very forgiving and kind. Also an abuse case(Her dad's evil incarnate))

Pffft, helping you out?

"helping"</b></i>???

"Griffins are not assigned to any special powers or magical properties that would make them any different from the animals and so they can be killed by conventional means, just like any other animal."
That line annoys me. Change it.
"Griffins possess no additional powers aside from their added strength, endurance and agility. As such, they can be taken down like any other animal, be it from bullets or an infected cut."
