Name: Augustus Young
Species: Human (Homo Sapiens, Man, Not-Beast, etc.)
Magic: Augustus is skilled with using heat, of varying forms. Usually, this means manipulating air currents, or controlling flames, although he can summon fire to a certain degree. He also has a small amount of practice with other forms of magic.
Skills: Augustus uses a sword, because swords are cool. He has shot a bow before, but thinks that bows are lame. Augustus can set up a camp like nobody's business (awkwardly phrased similes FTW!). He can also fight very well with a sword, just to clarify. So, yeah...
Appearance: I look like a human. But to clarify, I look like an extraordinarily stunning human, with curly brown hair, dark blue eyes, and other normal facial features. Also, I am tall, about 6'1", and muscular. I wear a plain green tee-shirt most of the time, and blue jeans, as well as only slightly dirty Converses. I suppose I also have a backpack, with simple survival items (flashlight, canteen, jacket, granola bars, Mt. Dew, etc.) as well as a sword (not sure how I walk around with a sword, perhaps it's invisible to normal people, or concealed in some way? Maybe it functions like a TARDIS, with a chameleon circuit, but without space and time travel features?) (Side note: I=Augustus Young, in this part of the application.)
Bio: Augustus lived a pretty mundane life for the first 17 years of his life. Of course, he attempted to make everyday an adventure, y'know, add some excitement to his extraordinarily ordinary life. This led to an enormous imagination on his part, which helped him greatly in his 18th year of living.
It started like any other day, cliched and The best part of Augustus' life was his two friends: Henry and Rose. They had grown up together, and were very similar in many ways. They all liked to adventure through the 'woods' behind their suburban homes. They all liked to create fantastic stories. In fact, they would often have a competition, as they camped out in the aforementioned woods, to see who could tell the best stories. Henry or Rose nearly always won, telling amazing and fantastic stories about dragons and Hurons (whatever those were) and other amazingly fantastic creatures of myth and legend!
Anyways, to continue with the story, Augustus, Henry, and Rose went through school together. They were academically brilliant, but Augustus rarely applied himself, Henry never turned assignments in, and Rose was too timid to excel like other outstanding, but considerably less brilliant, students. So they stayed together, enjoying each other's company, for twelve years. Then, just before graduation, Henry disappeared for several weeks. Neither Rose nor Augustus knew where he had gone, and his parents had refused to talk to most people for several years. So Rose and Augustus worried, and Henry remained gone. They graduated, although Henry wasn't mentioned once during the ceremony. Five weeks later, just after Rose's 18th birthday, Henry showed up at Augustus' house, telling him that he needed to pack the old camping kit, there was no time to explain, just come with him quickly. They went to Rose's house, and she was already packed and ready to go. As they drove down the interstate, Henry explained, mainly to Augustus, that the dragons and creatures Rose and Henry had always spoken of really did exist, and that Henry and Rose were both dragons! Rose simply nodded and told Augustus to stop interupting. So Augustus was told all about this secret mythical world, and that Henry and Rose were in danger, but if Augustus wanted to see them again, he should join the MPA, and Augustus sat in the back seat, very confused and incredulous. Until Rose showed him a small amount of magic.
They dropped Augustus off on a random street, told him to find them soon (without telling where they were going), said their goodbyes, and left. And Augustus looked around, rather startled, rather upset, and vaguely confused. Which is where the RP will pick up, of course!
