I have always wanted to do a story about monsters as young teenagers and being in school, and the escapades they could get into. For this reason, I feel like it differs from something like Rosario Vampire as it's not about fanservice and action, or Monster High as it's not so shallow and commercial. I wanted to make it more like a comical drama, with more deep ideals and the like.
Classification of a Monster-A scientific Synopsis
Monsterkind has significantly increased over the decades, becoming a common aspect of life. Monsters vary in species, but many display the simple characteristics of human beings. Though, their biology has rendered them as something separate of humans. This has led to prejudice against them, though a common community of humans and monsters is quite common. To be classified as a monster, you must be connected to some form of magic, or extraterrestrial, interdimentional, or any other form of mythic and divine energy. Because of this, monsters such as witches, clerics, summoners, wizards, and possessed people, while part human, are officially classified as monsters.
A popular misconception is that Zombies are considered monsters. This, however, is false. Zombies are dead bodies, infected with some sort of disease or parasite. Due to this, they have no sort of nerve system, or conscious. Because of this, they are considered not only a danger to humans and monsters. It should be noted that other re-animated corpses such as mummies, skeletons, or anything not brought to life through means of a parasite, but through magical means and given the conscious of a human, it is considered a monster.
Through regulations of law, monsters are to be raised in separate school. This is due to the dangers brought upon humans from young monsters, as some monsters are unstable upon birth, such as young werewolves and gorgons hurting others, sometimes unintentionally. This is also the case for half-monsters (mentioned above). The school system also scales by the growth system of other monsters and their lifespans. Because of this, High school lasts for 8 years as opposed to 4.
A study of Monsterkind-
By Elenore 'Igor' Enstin, class of 2005
For this RP, you will enter in the popular Boarding School, St. Enchants, located in an unnamed town in Japan. The school is international though, so many different cultures come here. The school is mostly united, but the top floor contains celestial beings such as angels and deities and the like. Beings such as these, along with demons, don't live in the 'Catacombs' or the dorm rooms. They simply go to their respective planes of existence at the end of the day. In a way, you could say they are commuting. They also have special classes, separate from those outside the circle. In a way, the angels are sort of like the honor students, but other monsters are able to join them if shown the finesse. Angels of the student council are constantly looking for new recruits, though Half-Humans are their preferred monsters. The Angels of God however are a special group, mainly inside the student council of the top floor, that are building strong souls to give to their God and raise purity. As far as they are seen by others, they are a fanatic religious group, and a ruthless one at that. The bottom floor, however, is more lenient and less concerned about others. They make up the majority of the school. These floors have their own student council. They run things relatively orderly, but due to the bulk of the school, cannot keep tabs as well as the top floor can with their smaller groups. Before a top floorer can take away someone to the honors class, it has to be run by, and approved, by the student council president. The school in whore is run by an unnamed principal, whom nobody has actually seen, only his voice over the intercom. I should mention that there's a school uniform (Green Blazer, Red tie, Gray pants/Skirts for girls), but there is no strict dress code, though students are regulated to wear most of the uniform.
The School has simple subjects a school would have normally, as well as extracurricular activities. The school has 2 major sports: Soccer and football. There are also special classes concerning magic, Beastiary Biology, and other things.
Name: Try not to make it too punny. Like Frank Stein or Fang Pire or some junk.
Age: Simple. Can vary depending on monster (a mummy would be over 3,000)
Species: Any popular monster will do. Just try not to make your own species, like a Spore Creature.
Personality: What they are like.
School Club/Sports Team: Try to have your character involved in one. Make one up on the spot if you want, like, Mad Scientist club.
School Year: Like Freshman to Senior, but since there are 8 years here, just say like 5th year or something.
Appearance: Add a picture if you want. Mind that you have to incorporate the uniform to the outfit in some way if not completely.
I really just want to have fun with this. It's kinda like a J-Drama mixed with a western cartoon comedy. There aren't many rules as Godmodding isn't that big of an issue. Just keep it PG-13. Try not to cuss or make things gory. And like I said, you can do some action things for a joke, but it's still more of a drama comedy RP over something super action.
I hope people sign up and enjoy <3
HA You almost made me care
