VH35 Crossfire Classic Tournament: Adult Duelist Sign-Ups

55 posts in this topic

ADULT DUELIST SIGN-UPS

 

Want to enter the Crossfire Classic but aren't signing up with an alumni? You'll need to register your adult duelist and post here before signing up for a tier. Please read all of the information in this thread before registering!

 

Before registering your character, please be sure that you intend to use them to sign up for at least one tier of the Crossfire Classic. It is recommended that you first read the Crossfire Classic Information.

 

A few rules (and reminders) regarding adult duelists:

  • Rules regarding student character creation still apply. No off-canon or CCE characters will be allowed to be registered as part of this event.
  • Your adult duelist is created only for the purposes of this tournament and may only post in tournament-related activities. These characters will be made inactive at the end of the Crossfire Classic.
  • Please keep in mind VH's PG rating when using your adult character.
  • If your character attended Hogwarts in the past 34 years, please keep in mind VH's history which includes 34 years of prefects, quidditch captains, dueling champions, and head students. (It would be a little awkward if your character claims to have won a dueling tournament at Hogwarts twenty years ago and happens to come face to face with the alumni character who actually won that tournament on VH, right? Let's avoid that.) 

 

Once you have registered your character, please post here with the following form. After posting your form, you are free to sign up for the Crossfire Classic! When you go to sign up in your tier logbook, please note that you will have to include your initial spell list at that time.

Character Name: Wanda Whisper

WP: 150

Intended Tier(s): Brawler Tier

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background: Wanda is a writer for the Daily Prophet, pumping out opinionated articles. She has a nose for a good story, and doesn't care about the lives she ruins in the process of sharing the story with the world. The world deserves to know all the dirty secrets! She's kinda flamboyant, and has an irritating voice. She'll be a mix of Skeeter and Umbridge.

Character Name: Joaquín Peñaloza

WP: 250

Intended Tier(s): Brawler Tier/Adept Tier/Professional Tier

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

Joaquín grew up, home-schooled in Spain by his mother who had heard many terrible accidents at all the magical schools. She did, however, instill in him a curiosity about magic that he never outgrew and thus, he began observing professional dueling circuits. 

 

Forced to settle down later on, Joaquín garnered a muggle job and abandoned all hopes of advancing his magical capabilities until recently. With his son showing signs of magic, he hopes to show the two year old that an old dog can learn new tricks.

Character Name:  Shirou Hayashi

WP: 400

Intended Tier(s): Brawler, Professional Tiers

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background: Shirou is from Japan and plays for the Japanese National Quidditch team and frequently duels in the Eastern professional dueling circuit with occasional appearances in tournaments in Europe when he can. He’s garnered appraisal for being able to beat opponents double his age and experience as he is rather flamboyant and also highly underestimated. He’s rather stoic in his appearance and seems to be a man of few words except when in media interviews- he’s rather hot headed and arrogant otherwise.

Character Name: Taeyang Park

WP: 357

Intended Tier(s): Brawler Tier, Professional Tier

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

 

Taeyang (35 years old), born in Gwanju, South Korea, has left home to prove himself. Coming from "New Korea", Taeyang is currently at odds with his grandfather who represents everything about "Old Korea". "Old Korea" wizards focused on patience and looking inner, choosing support and skill boosting spells, believing that duels are won by outlasting your opponents. "New Korea" wizards focused on brute strength and strong defensive spells, believing that duels are won by the strength of the spell.

 

After coming to odds with his maternal-grandfather (his father passed away when he was young, and so his mother moved back in with her parents) about their different dueling styles, Taeyang challenged him to a duel but it netted out as a stalemate. Deciding that he needed to travel the world and come back with many trophies, Taeyang set off. He had dueled in several countries (the US, India, Spain) before landing himself in England. His list of victories was not as long as he hoped, but he heard of a dueling tournament and is determined to bring home a trophy to show his grandfather that he was, indeed, a worthy duelist.

Character Name: Lenora Beaumont

WP: 269

Intended Tier(s): Brawler/Expert/Professional

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

Lenora has returned from her work with dragons in Romania in order to pursue other interests - dueling having always been one of them. She graduated top of her class at Beauxbatons, and has a genius IQ. She's in her mid-thirties now, and her five words are cold, merciless, brilliant, systematic and meticulous. Also, ruthless (sorry, six). She pays keen attention to details and possesses high intellect, but does not show much empathy for other people.

 

She hasn't dueled formally in years, but she was an excellent duelist back at school. She may be a "no-nonsense" type, but she has an endless amount of patience when it comes to ensuring she gets her way. Lenora will immediately know the name of every incantation and its particular effect, as well as commit herself to a very strategic approach.

Character Name: Peyton Keloha

WP: 89

Intended Tier(s): Apprentice Tier

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

Peyton's family (great-grandparents) grew up in Hawaii (Maui), but her parents immigrated and she's from Scotland. Formerly a Hufflepuff at Hogwarts, she's now in her 20's and working as a Healer. She's very romantic and emotionally-driven, with tendencies toward extreme highs and lows. However, she's generally positive, bubbly, and caring. The outdoorsy girl adores nature/adventures and all sorts of activities like hiking and camping. She possesses endless energy and big dreams, but she can be flaky (Pey isn't good with commitments). Her other flaws are naivety and lack of discipline.

 

She isn't the greatest duelist, either. Pey struggles with the basics, but she's always up for a tournament/social event, therefore was driven to enter an easy tier in order to meet new people and possibly improve her skill set.

Character Name: Sam "The Rocket" Rockett

WP:  400 (*coughBILLIONcough*)

Intended Tier(s): Brawler

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

 

Sam Rockett is a favorite on the american show-dueling circuit, where he goes by the ring name The Rocket. He is rife with catchphrases and signature moves, including the summoning of a bald eagle. His five words are shirtless, muscles, MURICA, yelling, and wand-punch. Only the Rocket really knows what a wand-punch is, but the crowds love it. And Sam Rockett lives to please the crowds. He enters to Metallica's "Enter Sandman", tears off his shirt, exchanges in some screamed banter with his opponents, pumps up his fans, neck veins bulge, muscles ripple, etc. etc. United States show-dueling thrives on production value, and they don't come finer than The Rocket. This man is as subtle as a rampaging dragon.

 

His LAL is John Cena, except "you can't see me" in this case means you literally can't see him.

 

Most of his combat magic comes in the form of themed MURICA spells and projectile rocks. Plus whatever a wand-punch is.

Character Name: Annelia Higgins

WP: 245

Intended Tier(s): Apprentice/Adept tier

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

Annelia is a Slytherin alumni, 27 years of age and attended Hogwarts VH19 - VH25

 

Anne is a bold, opinionated young witch who has pursued a career as an experimental potioneer, mostly dealing with beauty (she considers her greatest accomplishment a potion that changes your hair color- neon colors only- but has yet to have much success marketing it). She didn't duel much at Hogwarts until after her fifth year, due to immense pressure to focus on her studies by her mum, but upon puberty she went through a rebellious phase she has yet to leave. Once she left Hogwarts, she took odd jobs here and there (waitressing, cleaning, cashiering, and so on) while she spent her free time working on her potions and started dueling again as a means to blow off some steam.

 

As competitive as they come, if Annelia wasn't so focused on her work, she would spend a lot more time dueling. Instead, it's developed into a side hobby. She tends to use flashy, dramatic spells because she is all kinds of extra.

Character Name:  Mr. Unspeakable

WP: 389 (In actuality, it is “unknown” but I doubt that’s a valid option.)

Intended Tier(s): BRAWLER

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

  Mr. Unspeakable is a man of mystery.  No one knows who he is.  No one knows where he came from.  No one knows what spells he knows.  No one knows if he's ever even dueled before.  The only thing that's known about him is that he's a man, and that's just assumed because his name is "Mr. Unspeakable." 

 

He walked into the Crossfire Club one day, and signed up for the upcoming Brawler tournament.  Mr. Unspeakable always wears a mask and has never revealed his identity to anyone.  His five words are mysterious, enigmatic, evasive, secretive, and serious.  Instead of having a grand stage entrance, Mr. Unspeakable tends to just apparate into his starting position.  He is fast, efficient, and deviously creative.

Character Name: Igor Valentin

WP: 400

Intended Tier(s): Professional, Brawler (possibly)

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

 

Igor is a 52 year old pureblood wizard from Moscow, Russia, the uncle of @Vladimir Valentin, @Maksim Valentin, and @Ekaterina Valentin. A Durmstrang alumnus, Igor dueled while in school and also partook in some professional dueling circuits in Russia before pursuing his career with the Russian Ministry of Magic as - well, it's classified. In the meantime Igor lives in the UK with his wife and two children, as a professional violinist as well as a herbologist.

 

He is absolutely ruthless, no holds barred attitude, and WILL do anything and everything to get his end result. Some might call him prone to bursts of outright anger, and they would be 100% correct. Igor is unpredictable, the kind of man to pat you on the back one moment, then stab you in the back the very next, barring family members of course. He saw the notice about the Crossfire Classic tournament, and despite his brothers Vladimir and Ivan telling him otherwise, Igor does what he wants, and he signed up anyway.

Character Name: Warren Hahn

WP: 270

Intended Tier(s): Expert/maybe Professional

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

Warren was a middling sort of student at Hogwarts. He didn't excel in anything, nor did he fail, and the same could be said about his duelling prowess. He never won any tournaments, and never placed in the top three, but he never finished at the bottom of the brackets, either. After finishing his education at Hogwarts, he went from job to job, finally landing in a seedier, lesser known wand shop, operating as the establishment's "procurer of product", meaning he's the one who obtains the store's supply of wands, through various means. Not all of them are pleasant.

 

Hearing about an open duelling tournament piqued his interest, as it provided him a chance to go back and revisit some of his school memories (~VH10), while also providing him a "work" opportunity, with access to a large number of primo wands.

Character Name: Francesca Rovigatti
WP: 390 
Intended Tier(s): Brawler/Expert/Professional
 
A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

Francesca (Auntie Cesca to her niece @Rosie Roux) is an Italian witch who graduated from Beauxbatons with numerous dueling trophies under her belt and a reputation of prestige adorned with the expectation of achieving greatness.

 

Travelling Europe as a professional duelist for several years, she eventually returned to Italy to work for her father. Running concurrently to his work in the Rovigatti Library (a leading institution for both wizarding and muggle articles, and well known for its work against the spreading of dark wizards in Europe) he had started funding an underground organization of Hit Wizards dedicated to the disposal of various figures known to be supportive of, and enacting, dark magic - something the Italian Ministry of Magic hadn't been accomplishing quickly amid the spreading of it in the country.

 

Though her occupation treads rather murky waters of morality, Francesca is ultimately a good woman - someone who would sacrifice her own energies to help another without prompt. She hides this under an exterior of coolness and a sharp tongue ready to bite. Nice, after all, is different than good and while she acts for the betterment of others, Francesca is no-nonsense, shut off, and a serious woman who takes no prisoners. She will happily play dirty to gain an advantage and operates in the shadows.

Character Name: Agostina Eagerheart

WP: 313

Intended Tier(s): Brawler

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

The niece of prominent (and deadly) American duelist Octavia Eagerheart. Overzealous and constantly biting off more than she can chew. Extremely untrustworthy: descended from a line of swindlers, liars, murderers, and bankers. A study in nature vs. nurture: raised by her saintly aunt Verity in Colorado, but still harbors some nasty slimy tendencies passed down from her parents. Attended Ilvermorny, House Wampus.

 

Erratic dueling style: mimics her aunt Octavia’s vicious spellwork, much of which is above her ability level, and often pushes herself and her opponents to dangerous brinks. Likes using shields a LOT, to rebound jinxes back at their casters while strumming up new spells for the offensive. Duels in the United States at various clubs – Roanoke in Providence, Ten Lizards in Tucson, Clouds Rest in Yosemite – but rarely does well because of her disregard for rules and etiquette and the superior experience of her opponents.

A little bit about your character and their dueling background: Genevieve, or Evie, is the older cousin of @Selena Watkins. She lives and grew up in France, only here visiting her aunt, when she heard about the tournament and decided to sign up. She's a kind and gentle soul to everyone and anyone. However she is also rather competitive and forgets herself when playing games or sports.

Character Name: Guillaume Allemand

WP: 300

Intended Tier(s): Brawler Tier

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

Guillaume is essentially a tinkerer who enjoys altering muggle constructs for magical purposes.  He's not that well-known in legitimate business circles, but Guillaume's infamous in the world of underground street racing, and has worked on the brooms of several champions.  @Grover Penn was his apprentice for 3 summers.  While brooms may be his bread and butter, Guillaume is an inventor and artist at heart; one with several creations in the works.  He's looking to broaden his clientele base, and the Brawler Tier of the Crossfire Classic seems like the perfect setting for him to show off some of his toys.

 

Originally from France, Guillaume has a thick, very distinct accent.  He gets annoyed when people don't recognize it.  Guillaume is by no means a professional duelist, but he is a tall, physically intimidating person well-used to throwing others around, with or without magic.  Though he prefers to take a direct approach in most confrontations, when it comes to teasing others he has infinite patience.

Character Name: Michael Clatz

WP: 301 

Intended Tier(s): Professional, and maybe Brawler

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background:

 

The next James Dean. The next Chris Pratt. The next whatever. Mikey had heard it all. After attending Ilvermorny's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, this muggleborn decided to return to his true passion: acting! Growing up as a kid actor, Mikey disliked the fact that he was sent off to study magic because it prevented from pursuing acting. His parents encouraged him to take the adventure, and off he went. Graduation came quickly and Mikey decided to put his wand away for good and just become an actor.


He hit it big five years after graduation after being cast as a lead in a Marvel Movie probably Avengers 21 or something and enjoyed the life of a famous celebrity. But, one day, he was cleaning out his attic when he found the box containing his wand. After holding it in his hand for the first time in over 20 years, Mikey felt a strong desire to use it. And not just use it, but duel with it.

 

So when he got wind of the upcoming dueling tournament in London, he put his projects on hold and off he went to London. He felt like he had conquered the acting world, but he was interested in trying to conquer the dueling world.

Character Name: Violet Belliveau

WP: 335

Intended Tier(s): Expert, maybe Brawler

 

A little bit about your character and their dueling background: 

 

Violet hails from France and is a recent (three years ago) graduate of Beauxbatons. Inherently wealthy, she didn't pursue any career path immediately after school, despite high marks. After she found herself bored, she began hanging around local dueling clubs, and immediately was attracted to one of the regulars. She didn't dabble in dueling much herself until then, but that all changed, because she wanted to impress him. 

 

Her plan worked, and she became quite good since she had so much free time to practice, but her boyfriend tragically broke up with her after she signed up for the Crossfire Club tournament. Wanting to prove herself, she decided not to back out.

 

She's sassy, bubbly, girly, and rather vain, but despite her outward personality, she's extremely intelligent and only slightly malicious on a dueling platform.
