Cyrus Alucard Cain
Cyrus the Eyeless
Cyrus started as a 4th-year Obelisk Blue who owned a large part of the island and was determined to make his last year memorable, starting it off by skydiving down onto the boat. Y'know, the kid that's blind!In the second RP, he's now the headmaster, and much more sober.
Fiction500: Until he's disowned, at which point he has to rely on the island's resources and treaties.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: The end of the first RP, where he expels Angie for her extracurricular activities, then promptly offers her a position as Barnaby's TA.
Adoptively Cyrus's brother, River was a 4th Year Ra who was almost as crazy as Cyrus. Unfortunately, his attempt to cheer Angie up caused Mind Rape in the form of Eraser showing up, and it just went downhill from there. When the Cult finally showed up, he stormed the ship alone and was caught. In actuality, he joined the Cult and set his plan in motion to save everybody on the island at the cost of his life.
A girl who started out in Ra Yellow, but was demoted shortly after the start of the roleplay due to invalidating the no-unauthorised-uses insurance bonus. Currently Anna O'Grady's roommate. She made it to Duel Academy with the Dark Red Enchanter, her Duel Spirit, but has recently reworked her deck for the tournament. Currently kinda dead.Roleplayed by: Iniquitus The Third
Although Angela seems to believe she's got the makings.
Badass Normal: Of a sort. Her efforts did lead to Anna surviving against Raviel and being the only one of the five where the good guys made a net gain in situation (Tsuki for Raviel), though she did have to give her life to achieve that.
Tsuki: "Why am I the only halfway-stupid person here? There's a crazy-skilled Yellow, his crazy-crazy rival, a crazy-lucky Red, and a crazy-smart fourteen-year-old teacher! I'm just a girl, for goodness' sakes! How am I meant to compete?"
Diabolus ex Machina: Raviel's about to be eliminated by Laevateinn's effect a la Dreadroot, Tsuki's back in control if a little worse for the wear, it's starting to look like there might be a happy end— whoops, there goes half of the female cast.
Disney Death: Averted. She gets stabbed in the upper torso by a massive sword and graphically bleeds out on-page.
Heroic BSOD: She did not take being busted down to Red in her stride.
And happens again, in a mixture of despair and self-hatred, when she runs from the scythe-wielding crocodilian Tyrant Neptune, then beats herself up for doing the sane thing and trying to get to safety without trying to evacuate the entire building.
Heroic Sacrifice: Although one might argue that Raviel did force it to some extent.
Jerry and Johnny have acknowledged some form of attraction to her (though it may be more along the lines of respect for Jerry), and Michael — as per his usual attitude — was definitely flirting slightly with her near the start. And we haven't even gotten started on the whole deal with Anna...
A Ra Yellow Duellist from a distant foreign land. His duel spirit is Gearfried the Iron Knight. He is short and thin. His hair is brown, and he wears rectangular spectacles. His duelling disk is remarkably similar to Gearfried's sword.
Jerry: "Ryu... That means 'dragon', doesn't it? There's an irony there. You don't have dragons, but Scott does. And "Scott" means "guy from Scottland", and then since you're not using Celtic Guardian, the whole thing kinda breaks down and we should probably forget I mentioned it. I can't blame you for not having a Scottish guy in your deck on the off-chance you were ever in the same place as a guy named Scott who had dragons in his."
Plot Tumor: The bulk of his existence, particularly in the first RP, where an entire city's worth of supporting characters showed up just to help flesh out his character.
Sleeping in class again, Scott?
The Ra Yellow student who's supposedly the next best duelist since River Finn. He's also narcoleptic, really short, with blue hair and tan skin. Also, he runs a dragon synchro deck.Roleplayed by Kuiper
Ambiguously Brown: Scott's naturally tan. With naturally blue hair. This is probably anyone's best guess.
Bi the Way: Pretty much. However, this isn't mentioned until the second RP, when thinking about Rai. In the first, his crush on Blair was obvious.
Berserk Button : It's quitting or giving up, in case you haven't noticed.
Two people have prompted it to be pushed; once, he threatened Professor Loatheless for even considering giving up(along with River), and more recently, Jerry actually accused him of not fighting back when things get rough. It prompted him to accept the shadow game.
Determinator: In the first RP, by sheer determination, he broke a curse Skye was transferring over to him, after having sustained massive damage from SWORD.
Informed Ability: An odd case. In the first RP, Scott was reasonably good, though lost a plot-important duel. In the second, he's lost both his duels so far.
The self-proclaimed greatest duelist on the island
A student who insists he's only in Slifer Red because the entrance exams don't give points for style, until he revealed that he intentionally slacked off during them. His duel spirit is Giant Germ. He is rather average height and weight-wise. He keeps his brown hair tied back in a ponytail, and he wears contact lenses.Roleplayed by: tachikaze
Underdogs Never Lose: Invoked and discussed. He slacked off during the entrance exams because he thinks a Slifer Red student winning against the Blues is seem as more impressive than a Yellow doing the same, and he conversed with Tsuki about how the Slifers seem to have ridiculous luck.
The Brutal Blue
The only Obelisk Blue PC in the RP thus far. Firmly believes himself and his Blue dormmates to be superior to all others on the island, except teachers. Blond-haired, blue-eyed with a slightly broken nose from an old school scrap.Roleplayed by: EviIPaladin
Chewing the Scenery: One has to wonder if the abandoned warehouse where he fought Johnny is still standing, after they feasted on it.
Large Ham: He seems to transmute all of his jerkass-ness into pure ham the moment he puts on a Duel Disk.
Special mention goes to his hilariously dramatic activation of Final Countdown and his Motive Rant followup against Johnny:
Sean: "Fear? HA! I laugh at fear! You shall not scare me with fire and brimstone! You who is scared of fire shall learn of a new fear: the fear of the cleansing light! It shall burn you without fire! It shall scar you without marks! It shall kill you without laying a finger on you! Watch as it ends your sight! Listen as it ends your hearing! Cry as it ends your voice! There shall be no escape from the light! The light I, Sean Abeu, shall channel into my victory! DRAW!"
Giery is a jerk, plain and simple. His whole M.O. seems to be to battle Sean over who can kick more baby puppies the furthest. Recently, he was the only PC (though he is a PC no longer) to not make it to the Top 8 in the tournament, leading him to taunt Tsuki into losing before being bodily removed by Armstrong.
Stupid Evil: So you're hanging by your neck after you attacked a teacher that revealed s/he could easily kill you, and what do you do? Giery thinks that the answer is to yell at him/her to do his/her worst.Plot Armor as a PC was all that protected him from a quick Neck Snap.
Hypo Crite: After he looked through Dead!River's deck, he declared that LIGHT monsters were wimpy. Giery (at the time) was using what amounted to a LIGHT Fairy deck.
Scott's self-appointed rival, Jerry Parker is his opposite in many ways; tall, fierce, and energetic, with pale skin and blood-red hair, Jerry has made it his mission to claw his way to the top of Duel Academy's food chain. To that end, he's eager to take on everyone, but he's had his eyes set on taking Scott down since he first saw him. Jerry's Duel Spirit is Jurrac Titano, a towering dinosaur with a gruff attitude and a sharp wit, but a good heart under it all.Roleplayed by: Scrounge
Celibate Hero: Deconstructed, he's obviously got feelings that he's trying to repress.
Determinator: He and Scott have this in common... Jerry has gone up a mountain on a motorcycle after receiving a chest wound. Before getting any medical attention. This bites him in the ass later on, as he nearly kills himself dueling Scott after those same wounds reopen, and refuses to concede until Titano convinces him to, even though he can't stand by that point.
...But is starting grow disillusioned with Scott due to their differing worldviews.
The Reckless Inferno of Red
Johnny is a 2nd-year and NPC. First appearing in the Red's Girls' Dorm (helping girls unpack, of course), Johnny is something of a gentleman to teachers and girls. He's also very well-connected on the island, as far as owed favors and such, and part of a group of Slifer Reds that help each other advance by pooling their resources before each exam. According to him (and shown by his duel with Sean), he is a very good Duelist, but his deck cannot stand up to the requirments that exam duels force upon him, and nobody will duel him anymore because he defeats them; no duels, no DP, no new cards, and he can't fix his deck for exams. His deck is a FIRE-themed deck with many Trap Monsters, and he hails from Detroit- in this universe, an arsonist-filled hellhole.He also seems to have a darker side to him. He provides the Hand Wave for Ryoga's leaving the plot by having a friend plant marijuana in Ryoga's room to get him kicked off the island, and obtained cards from a shipment which he passed to Tsuki and Sean. His main interactions in the RP so far have been with Tsuki, as well.Currently blinded by Uria and in the Arctic Circle with Giery.
Achey Scars: Possibly his back, according to an exchange with Uria.
Playing with Fire: Notable because he apparently hates fire after someone close to him died in an arsonfire back home, but uses his deck in memory of them.
She Is Not My Girlfriend: Tsuki. Of course, it's hard to believe that with all he's done for her, and even calling her beautiful at one point. And now kissed her.
The Golden-Hearted Girl With A Mafia Connection
A cheery, emotionally connected girl, and Slifer Red student. Tsuki's roommate, and the little sister of Blake from the last RP. Her unique gift is the ability to feel what others are feeling, to an extent. Always there with a smile and a positive comment, she's one of the happier characters in the roleplay.(Formerly) Roleplayed by darksidevoid. Currently automated by Sarcastically Insane
Milton is Scott's cousin, and a duelist in the Pro League. According to him, he's one of the lesser-known duelists that have a very hard time because they don't have as many connections or fame. He was the one who got Scott into dueling, though he didn't know that until recently.Currently, he's managed to give Jerry, Ryu, and Sean an opportunity to get into the Pro Leagues by pulling in connections.
Various Duel Spirits also play a part in the RP. Most characters have a personal Spirit as of the 2nd RP, though only Barnaby, Angela, and Cyrus had one in the first RP thanks to the curse- and even then, only because their Spirits were varying degrees of evil.
The Wickeds are The Wicked Avatar, The Wicked Eraser, and The Wicked Deadroot. Respectively, their cards are owned by Cyrus, Angie, and Barnaby. Each represents a different facet of evil; insanity, pain, and destruction.
The Wicked Avatar
Usually shortened to just 'Avatar', its visual form is a formless black mass that can change into various things.
Bored With Insanity: Avatar is the second oldest existence in the universe, after The Winged Dragon of Ra itself. He's been dealing with the end of the world enough, and really doesn't care all that much anymore, especially since Cyrus is so entertaining. It also helps that there's enough crazy on and around the island for him to stay relatively strong.
Usually shortened to 'Eraser', 'dick', or unintelligible whimpers, Eraser resembles a corrupted Slifer- mainly because he is. Currently sealed deep underground, far away enough from other people to prevent a sudden plot derailment.
Put on a Bus: Apparently, Micheal has him now. Hasn't helped his appearance rate at all, though.
Neo-Parshath, the Sky Paladin
Giery's ex-Duel Spirit. Responsible for the massive wound in Jerry's stomach and no small amount of headache for Rai while Giery still had him. Powerful enough to at least change a Duel into a partial version of a Shadow Game, and kind of a dick.
Blood Knight: His approach to a problem? Kill things until it goes away.
