    The Dawn

    [​IMG]
    Only a short time ago, mankind established its first fortified settlements. Across the map of Remnant, four kingdoms have risen, kingdoms that, while still new, will stand as the foundations of human civilization in the years to come. Their names are Vacuo, Vale, Atlas, and Mistral. These key capital cities are surrounded by smaller towns and villages, each under the protection of formidable huntsmen, who serve as protectors and Nobles in this age. They are the knights of the realms, keeping the creatures of Grimm at bay in order for humanity to grow and thrive.
    However, even as humanity struggles to establish itself in the face of the threat of the Grimm, the Lords of the land, who form the Councils of the cities, squabble over petty things. Borders of feudal holdings are drawn and redrawn, trade routes fought over, bribes are made for political gain, and the loyalty of Hunters is bought. Not all Lords are like this. Some are truly noble, working to protect and uphold and build. However, it seems that the majority have fallen further and further into corruption, Faunus and human alike.
    As the youth grow older and take up trades to practice, fewer and fewer have chosen the way of the huntsmen. All too often, the life of a huntsman is cut short in service. Due to the draw of hardship and lack of protection, the creatures of Grimm have become a larger plague than they previously were. Only those who live in the four fortified cities are truly safe. The outliers all too often come under attack, and are lost. The situation is dire and those in power seem to care only for furthering themselves. The call has been put out for future Hunters and Huntresses to answer to. However, it is uncertain how many will rise to heroism in the face of danger.
    In the desperation for new Hunters and Huntresses to rise up and protect humanity, the council of Atlas came together with the idea of forming the first Hunting Academy. Previously, huntsmen were trained by following an older, more experience Hunter or Huntress about, and acting as an apprentice. However, this method keeps the numbers low and does not allow the protection for the students that an established school would. All too often, young prospects are lost to the Grimm before they can complete training. In order to remedy this, the Lords of the council have decided that an academy must be built in order for greater numbers of potential protectors to be trained efficiently. However, with the numbers of active Hunters and Huntresses low already, they have had great difficulty finding instructors for this new academy. They have sent the offer of employment as far as the other three kingdoms and have been met with just enough success to begin schooling. All that is needed now are brave young souls who will answer the call to protect humanity. To attend this new school, called only ‘The Academy’.

    THE MAIN RULE: The GM’s word is law. Excessively arguing with the GM (and, by extension, Co-GM) will result in consequences. My dad has this rule when we tabletop that goes a bit like ‘if you argue with the GM, the enemy will hit every time and do maximum damage to your character’. Please do not make me use a variation of this.

    1) No excessive language. As in, your character is not permitted to have a vocabulary that consists only of cursing. Please, keep the f-bomb to a minimum as well.

    2) No graphic sex/rape scenes. I don't mind it being alluded to or even non-graphically posted. Just keep it PG-13. You can get steamy and talk about how ‘they became one’ or 'questionable noises' came from the bedroom or whatever, but no word porn. I don't want to know how long your male character is or how big your female character's bust is.

    3) Due to the fact that the adult characters are older and more experienced than the students, it stands to reason that they are more powerful. However, they are not unstoppable or so tough that they face down an entire pack of Beowulfs without injury. Especially in this time when weapons are not as powerful. Please, those of you who play adult characters, use reason.

    4) No super graphic violence. As seen in the Red trailer, fights are messy and gory. However don't explain how many disembodied heads and limbs were lying around. That's just gross and some people aren't too keen on violence.

    5) When making an out of character comment, please specify it as such by using 'OOC' and then 'IC' when you return to being in character.

    6) We are all on here to have fun. Don't be a fun leech by starting arguments or putting others down.

    7) If the roleplay begins to slow down, I or my fellow GM(s) will throw in a general 'plot twist' to keep things moving.

    8) If your characters meet in combat, be respectful to the other player. You cannot kill or injure their character without their consent. That being said, keep it realistic. Your character will most likely not walk away from a battle completely unscathed.
    Ex:
    First player: Maugrim stabbed at Ari with his spear, aiming to sever the deltoid and cut off the use of her left arm.

    Second player: Ari dodged to the side, narrowly avoiding the glinting blade. However, even as she did, the spear cut through her sleeve, leaving a narrow gash in the fabric.


    Notice that the blows are attempted, and the possible damage is stated, but they do not actually land without the other poster's consent.

    9) All posts must be at least three sentences and may not be a block of speech. Description helps keep things moving

    10) Please refer to the RP Rules thread in the ‘RWBY Role Play’ section

    I would like you to send your app to me for approval before posting it here:

    Name: (First and last)
    Age: (16-18 unless you have been given permission to play a teacher)
    Race: (Faunus or Human) [note that while some Faunus hold positions of power, the group on the whole is viewed as second class]
    Appearance: (face, hair, size, scars, etc. Pictures are encouraged. Give me at least a few complete sentences. ‘Blue eyes, brown hair, tall, skinny’ does not cut it)
    Clothing: (all visible clothing and armor. Pictures are encouraged)
    Weapon: (description of what it is, what it does, how it is used, etc. Pictures are encouraged. Remember that technology is not as advanced and guns are a new phenomenon. Your weapon will likely have only one form though it will most likely be able to utilize dust)
    Semblance: (no OP)
    Emblem: (do the best you can. Pictures are basically required)
    History: (usually a paragraph or two explaining your character's life up until whenever the RP would start. No limits on how long or short it is within reason, but the more detail the better. It must be more than one or two sentences and the sentences must be complete!)
    Personality: (optional though advised)
    *I am only allowing a few adult characters. I will be using one, the founder of The Academy, in a minor fashion in order to keep the plot flowing. If you would like to play an instructor at The Academy, you must explain in their backstory why they left their duties of protecting the lands and acting as knights in order to come train the younger generations.

    Name: Lord Ravin Gale
    Age: 35
    Race: Human
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    A large, muscular man, Ravin is a fearsome Hunter with an even more fearsome reputation. His numerous scars are a testament to his almost twenty years of hunting experience. He stands at a hulking 6'4 with the bulk to match. His hair and rather impressive beard are a fiery red while his eyes are a dark brown, almost black. His face is already lined with more frown lines than laugh lines and his stern bearing speaks of a hard life. He has a very deep, rumbling voice that can be easily heard even in the din of a crowd.

    Clothing:
    [​IMG]
    Ravin wears a simple tunic and breeches with boots. When acting as a Lord, he will wear a finer tunic and breeches with a cape depicting his emblem. In combat, he is known to wear a long-sleeved shirt beneath a simple chain jerkin. His other armor includes a helm, decorated with horns, and a large circular shield. He also wears a long, fur cape in battle.

    Weapon:
    [​IMG]
    Along with his shield, Ravin wields a simple sword through which he prefers to utilize wind dust. He has also shown proficiency with an axe, though he prefers the sword.

    Semblance: Physical Enhancement: Ravin is almost supernaturally fast and agile for his size. He is also incredibly strong. This is part of the reason he is so accomplished.

    Emblem:
    [​IMG]
    Ravin's emblem is emblazoned on his shield and finer cape.

    History:
    Not much is known about Ravin’s childhood. He became the apprentice to Sir Erik Gale, his father, at age fifteen and traveled with him for five years. At age twenty, he came under the employ of a Lord of atlas and began to serve as the Knight Protector of this Lord’s land. He was a prodigy, a skilled hunter who rarely failed in any task. As his fame grew, he became something of a legend. Eventually, nearly ten years later, the Council awarded him a small bit of land and the title of Lord. He became a lesser noble with an inordinate amount of influence. His name is known far and wide. He is a hero to the commoners and nobility alike, and carries the weight of that heroism. This has gained him many enemies as well as allies in the political realm.
    It was Ravin who brought forward the idea of an academy and he who offered to act as headmaster. Despite his skill on the field, he thought it more pressing to train new huntsmen, and hopes to use his name as a draw for young prospects.

    Personality:
    Though gruff in appearance, Ravin has a no-nonsense charisma that inspires others to follow him. He is said to have an explosive temper, though it is rarely seen. He is down to earth and stern, though not unkind. He has the best interests of his people and humanity in general at heart, and holds the wisdom and intelligence to see his plans through.

    Name: Nuada Lyall
    Age: 18
    Race: Wolf Faunus
    Appearance: Nuadas hair is short and swept to the left, is also silver. Nuada has orange (appears to be glowing) eyes. Pale skin. His face is pretty much clean except for orange war paint that makes three fingers go down each cheek.
    Silver Wolf ears perk from his head.
    Clothing: hooded silver cape like this but cleaner quality.
    [​IMG]
    Wears silver colored robe like shirts and walks in a pair of light greaves, steel boots and has one rounded steel shoulder piece.
    Weapon: A double side sword that can be flipped into two beyonetted flintlock pistols.
    upload_2014-12-12_17-13-37.jpeg
    upload_2014-12-12_17-16-11.jpeg
    The bayonets are bigger than the ones on these.
    Emblem
    : [​IMG]
    History: Nuada was born in a village out side of Minstrel, a very vaunerable area at that. Being faunus caused for a difficult childhood and his silence. When he was 16 his village was attacked by grim and he was the only one able to defend it. Sadly he was overpowered and the grim had gotten past him destroying the village and killing his family. After several years Nuada changed his last name from goornik to Lyall which means "Shield Wolf" hoping that will help him be more confident in protecting people.
    For two years he has faced hard challenges and found new techniques. Another day as 17 Nuada heard of 'The Academy', a place to train hunters and huntresses. Once he arrived in atlas 'The Academy' was still in construction but now, almost a year later the eighteen year old and signed up. He hopes for a better life and a better chance to protect his new friends.
    Personality: Nuada is silent, but when he speaks it is moderately deep and has a fairly unknown accent with no state of recordation (mainly a scott-irish accent). Very protective. Nuada also has a calm temper which has been helpful in the past. Even though he doesn't speak much he has fantastic people skills.
    Semblance: When Nuada becomes angry or is to the point of death his Faunus feature intensifies and he becomes a blood thirsty beast. But this is where he drops his intelligence and focusses on brute force.

    Name: Catriana 'Cat' Ravencroft

    Age: 17

    Race: Faunus (Raven)

    Appearance:
    Aegis Jupiter.jpg
    Catriana has sharp features that cause her large, green eyes to appear very big indeed. They are a strange, pale green, the color of water that the sun has shown through. Her hair is a deep black and has a feathery appearance. She is very pale. She is very slender and tall, almost 'elf-like'. Her voice is oddly melodic, almost entrancing.

    Clothing:
    [​IMG]
    Catriana wears black trousers and boots as well as a green sleeveless shirt. Her overcoat is forest green and also sleeveless. It is long, falling to her ankles, and hooded.

    Weapon:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Cat uses a bow most of the time, utilizing it with her semblance. In close combat, she uses a pair of long daggers.

    Semblance: Catriana has a semblance that allows her to teleport short distances. As long as she can see her destination, she can get there. She uses this in combat by 'jumping' around her opponent in order to outmaneuver them. This makes her an unpredictable opponent.

    Emblem:
    [​IMG]
    Catriana's emblem is an intricate knot in the shape of a bird and is etched into her bow and the blades of her daggers.

    History:
    Catriana was born outside of Atlas in a heavily wooded area. A village had been built there, within the trees. Her father was the Hunter who had bravely led the group who settled the area and acted as their protector. Due to their ingenuity in creating the tree houses, they flourished. The Grimm had difficulty getting to them through the dense forest and those that did were killed by her father and his brother, who had accompanied him. Catriana grew up within the trees, playing in their branches and learning the ways of the forest and of hunting. When word of The Academy reached them, Catriana’s father suggested that she attend to be further and hopefully better trained. She agreed and made the journey to Atlas in order to enroll.

    Personality:
    Due to having grown up in a rather isolated area, Catriana can have some difficulty interacting with others. She has a tendency to use sarcasm and can seem a bit mocking at times, however, this is not her intent. She has a kind heart and wishes to protect those who cannot protect themselves. Only those closest her have seen her softer, gentler side. Though polite to strangers, she has been known to let her sarcastic demeanor slip out from time to time.

    Name: Kayden Inferno
    Age: 17
    Gender: Male
    Race: Human
    Appearance: Kayden is slightly taller and has a slightly bigger build than average, with (dyed) short, dark red hair and shining amber eyes. He has light, slightly tanned skin. [​IMG](I'm imagining hair of this colour but with darker skin and a different eye colour. Kayden also doesn't wear glasses, and has a longer, far less round face than the picture above)

    Clothing: He wears a leather jacket dyed red on top of a black shirt, and a pair of shorts a slightly darker shade of red than the jacket. There is a embroidered pattern of a burning fist (Kayden's emblem) on the left (his left) side of the jacket, as well as on the knee guards at the top of his knee-length black boots.

    Weapon: Fire and Brimstone - Kayden has two almost identical hammers (one called Fire and the other called Brimstone), both of which look almost exactly like the Mjolnir depicted in the Marvel Universe. The handle is slightly shorter (and red), and there is a red spike (a Burn dust crystal) protruding from the top of each hammer. This spike can be fired much like the blade of a ballistic knife, and when the spike makes contact with a solid, it deals piercing damage and then explodes. Therefore each hammer only gets one shot before Kayden has to reload it. It should also be noted that while both hammers are extremely powerful (and forged well), they do not grant powers of lightning or return to Kayden's hand; only the appearance is drawn from the Marvel Universe. Reloading is done by placing a Burn dust crystal into the gap at the top of the hammer.

    Semblance: Infernal Fury: While he is angered, Fire and Brimstone become weightless in his hands (but only to him). This allows Kayden to swing the hammers at tremendous speeds, launching a barrage of hard-hitting fast attacks at opponents. Kayden's eyes turn from amber to red when this happens. It should be noted that while the Semblance in theory could be used for anything he can grip firmly in his hand, Kayden must be extremely familiar with the object for it to work. This means that the only things he can plausibly use Infernal Fury on are his two hammers.

    Emblem: [​IMG]Basically a fist with a flame around it.


    Backstory: Born and raised as villagers living outside the walls, Kayden's family finally managed to reach the kingdom of Atlas after being driven from their homes when he turned 16. Having lived in a rather dangerous world with the constant threat of Grimm, Kayden was no stranger to violence. This meant that he came to Atlas with Fire and Brimstone already with him, though he was not neccessarily that good at using the hammers. Now Kayden would like to join the Academy in order to be able to fight back so that next time, no Grimm would be able to have their way with him.

    Personality: Kayden is impulsive, and often acts before thinking. He is independent, and very passionate about the things he enjoys/has set his mind on. He acts on what his heart tells him to do, and follows his gut instinct. Kayden is very straightforward, and will bluntly state what he believes rather than tiptoe around a situation. He also prefers to face challenges head-on (usually by hitting them as hard as he can with his weapons) rather than use more subtle methods. Another flaw of his is his bad temper.

    Name: Peritus (Peri) Arcus
    Age: 17
    Race: (Human)
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Clothing:
    Vest:
    [​IMG]
    Other Clothing: (Sorry if it's too small) (Also minus the hat).
    [​IMG]

    Weapon:
    Peritus's wields three weapons, a modified musket, a flintlock pistol, and a leather heater shield.
    Musket: The musket is relatively normal, though has a modified bottom grip for better handling. There is also a fixed bayonet at the end, allowing it to be used as a spear if Peritus is rooted out. (The crest is carved into the grip).
    Pistol: Standard flintlock pistol. Peri can also load fire dust as ammo to act as a primitive flair.
    Shield: This shield is meant to be light, and quickly equipped when ammunition is spent. It serves no purpose other than to act as an extra defense in melee combat.
    Semblance: Nimble (Peri is more lithe and quick on his feet, meaning he can get to where he needs to be faster.)
    Emblem:
    [​IMG]
    History: Peritus Arcus is the son of a high ranking lord in Atlas territory, who's wealth extends from massive amounts of farmland owned to their name. The family has sustained its wealth from agriculture for several generations at this point, whereas it is its best known attribute. This added to the surprise, and the following arguments, when Peritus announced he wanted to attend The Academy.

    As the second son of the family, Peri by tradition would have inherited the position of supervision, namely, ensuring the surfs did as they were told and did it quickly. By his nature, Peri did not enjoy having subordinates, and disliked the idea of telling others what to do. Upon hearing about the Academy, he became interested in doing something better than making his older brother rich and making peasant lives miserable. As such, he told his parents his intentions, and it took several weeks before they agreed, but not before giving him some training so he wouldn't end up like the other pompous rich kids who joined. Namely, dead.

    At age 14, Peri began his training with the family guard force. He disliked the melee weapons that the majority of the guard force used, and instead found himself more inclined to the use of newer, less grisly weapons, firearms. From then forth he trained in sharp shooting, making every shot count, and making his time between shots shorter. He also experimented with pistols, and low quality dust ammunition, in the case the enemy ever got too close.

    Peritus was also trained in common battle tactics, how to judge the enemy's strength, numbers, and so forth, and in extreme cases, how to lead others into battle.

    When Peritus turned 17, his parents, though throughout his years training never fully accepted it, finally acknowledged his free choice, and sent him off to join The Academy.

    Personality:
    Peritus will remain loyal to those he finds worthy, though will refuse to do as commanded if the moral implications go against what he believes.

    Peritus hates the idea of ordering others around, and will try as much as possible to get around it.

    Also stemming from his refusal to order others, Peritus doesn't seem to care about class distinction, and will talk with anyone he finds good company.

    Name: Thaddeus Valyrian
    Age: 18
    Race: Human
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Thaddeus is fairly tall and powerfully built, though somewhat stocky, as is expected for someone who lives in the cold. has thick, shaggy black hair and a light beard. his hands are callused and his arms are scarred, owing to his rough history; his ring and little fingers on his right hand are missing from frostbite.
    Clothing:
    [​IMG]
    he generally wears a thick cloak about him, furnished with a wolf pelt. he also wears leather armor, backed with chainmail, a functional defense. in warmer climate, he would generally remove the cloak.
    [​IMG]
    beneath the cloak, he wears a segmented pauldron, which also utilizes a short neck guard.
    Weapon:
    [​IMG]
    Fenris Castigator - an ancint and powerful weapon, handed down for generations, Castigator contains a shard of the purest form of Ice dust, and in several hundred years, has been only slightly depleted. when activated, any wound the blade inflicts spreads frostbite on the foe, both slowing and wounding the foe. in addition to this, Castigator is also a chainsword, powered by the Ice dust.

    [​IMG]
    A wood and iron Targe, infused with earth dust to make it more resilient. it also bears his house emblem.
    Semblance: can manifest his Aura into a force field, that can withstand large amounts of damage; however, it only protects one-fourth of the area around him, and only for a short time.
    Emblem:
    [​IMG]

    History: Thaddeus was born in the far north, in the Umber lands, a series of fishing and mining villages which harvested the rich resources there. Thaddeus was the fourth son of Lord Tytos, who ruled those villages. knowing he would never succeed his father, Thaddeus instead chose to be the apprentice of Rogal Dorn, a skilled huntsman. the Grimm in the North were very powerful, and Thaddeus on several occasions showed his naivety to Dorn. Dorn said that he was not ready to train with him, and sent him south to train. it is Thaddeus' goal to improve to the point where Dorn will accept him as a pupil.
    Thaddeus has both personal and family reasons for disliking faunus. one of his Father's most trusted advisers, Krogan Valras, was a falcon faunus, reputed for his skill at arms. he and Lord Tytos had met on a campaign years prior and had become friends; afterwards, Valras decided to join the Valyrian household.
    one day, Valras, his son Loran, Tytos, and Thaddeus had gone upon a hunt. halfway through, Valras turned his spear upon thaddeus, slicing open his stomach in a gruesome and painful manner. Tytos, realizing the treachery, killed Loren, and the two fathers battled in a great duel; however, Tytos proved the greater warrior and slew the faunus who had one been his comrade. as he died, Krogan revieled it had been his family ambition to clear the world of Humans and make it only for faunus.
    wwhen they returned to Umber keep, they found it in turmoil; Valras' men had attacked, killing Thaddeus' mother, as well as many of Tytos' most valued knights. it cost many men to defeat the faunus, and the repairs that needed to be done following were immense; much of the Valyrian's wealth was in land, not gold, and thus nearly bankrupted the house.
    Tytos kneeled before the gods and swore a holy oath that neither he nor any of his descendants would consort with or ally with Faunus, and would take an antagonist stance towards faunus from that day forth.
    However, on the day that Thaddeus declaired that he would train as a hunstman, Lord Tytos renonced him as a son, saying he was unworthy of his place and no one of his line would ever rule their part of the umberlands. now, though Thaddeus still feels strongly antagonistic towards the Faunus, he does not consider himself holden to any of his father's oaths.
    Personality: Thaddeus does keep to himself a little, but is overall friendly. he is respectful to all, but will show hostility to pompousness or pryingness in particular.

    Name: Jynx Blackwood
    Age: 18
    Race: Cat Faunus

    Appearance: Jynx is a rather tall, slim figure, with an exotic build that makes her very attractive. She has short bobbed purple hair, purple cat ears, and purple eyes.


    [​IMG]

    Clothing: She usually wears long sleeved shirts and leotards, but leaves her midriff exposed. Her clothes are mostly white or black with purple, pink, or blue accent work, and usually entail a lot of leather. She rarely wears armor to maintain flexibility and manueverability since she is very light on her feet.

    [​IMG]

    Weapons: She weilds twin hooked tonfa style blades named Hex and Vex.

    [​IMG]

    Emblem: a purple cat paw print.

    [​IMG]

    Semblance: gravity spring- allows her to briefly alter gravity's pull near her, making it heavier or almost nonexistant. It only works in short bursts at a time.

    History: Jynx grew up outside the kingdoms, fending for herself as an orphan. She had to learn to fight to survive.

    Personality: Jynx is comedic, always looking for a prank to pull or or an idiot to dupe. She loves throwing charm around freely and has excessive amounts of it. She doesn't have any qualms about breaking the rules. She likes to hold all the cards, but won't hesitate to jump on an opportunity to show off. She loves to tease and flirt, but in reality distrusts men and prefers to fend for herself.

    Gender/Race: Human Female
    Appearance: Lacie is on the tall side with a slight hourglass frame and slightly pale skin. She has ice blue eyes and red hair with white highlights that she likes to keep in a messy bun with loose strands hanging along the sides of her face.

    Clothing (I can't draw to save my life so I'll just describe it): Lacie wears a white lace thigh length dress with a red bolero jacket over it. The jacket extends to just above her hips and is lined with gold buttons. Across her waist is a red silk band that ties off in a bow across her back, and she wears red calf high boots. (Basically, think of Weiss's design but styled red and white).

    Weapon: Lacie wields a gold scepter named Sceptrum Pulveris (Scepter of Dust). Atop the scepter is a rotating crystal that can house different types of Dust that she's able to use as a Dust Mage. With each swing, she releases clouds of Dust that she can direct with her Semblance to form focused blasts, broad sweeping arcs or whirlwinds to deal elemental damage. Additionally, the head of the scepter features retractable spikes turning it into a mace for close quarters combat.

    Semblance: Aerokinesis (aka Air Bending). She's able to generate and control gusts of wind to blow opponents over, though she mainly uses it in tandem with Dust clouds to control the damage being dealt. With her Semblance, clouds of fire dust become flamethrowers, electrical dust becomes electrical storms, and ice becomes a blizzard.

    Emblem (Again, can't draw): Lacie's family crest is stylized after a playing card with a red heart overlaid on a black shield adorn with a gold crown. In the top left and bottom right corners is the letter R in red, though the bottom R is upside down like a playing card.

    History: Lacie came from a privileged family with old money maintained by the family's banking empire established by her father, Lord Cheshire Reginacor. As such, she was largely raised by maids and servants rather than her parents. She had an older sister, Mathilda who was the family favorite and heiress to the banking empire when she died. When Lacie was a young child, she went wandering about in the woods by her house and was ambushed by a pair of Ursai. Mathilda gave her life so that Lacie could escape, and Lacie blamed herself for Mathilda's death. Unfortunately, Lacie's parents, in their grief and pain, resented Lacie for what happened and implicitly allowed Lacie to believe that Mathilda's death was her fault. Wanting nothing to do with Lacie, they had her home schooled and took no part in her life.

    The pain and guilt of Mathilda's death triggered a depression, but this then devolved into bipolar disorder as the stress of rigorous home-schooling and minimal parental support sparked cycles of manic and depressive states. In an attempt to finally be rid of Lacie, her parents shipped her off to the Academy so that she would be "someone else's problem."

    Personality: Lacie is bipolar ranging between states of mania and depression. Her "manic" states involve a very energized mental state characterized by euphoria, hyperactivity, sleep deprivation, racing thoughts, low attention span, risky behavior (including substance abuse and hyper-sexuality), delusions of grandeur and in some cases, aggression and rage.

    On the other end is the "Depression" state which comes with all of the usual depression symptoms: persistent sadness, anxiety, guilt, irritability, anger, isolation, hopelessness, self-loathing, apathy, sleep/appetite/focus issues, loss of interest in things once appealing and shyness/social anxiety.

    However, there is a third middle state known as "hypomania" which is her baseline personality: optimistic, energetic, creative, and those who are unaware that she has a problem will see her as a normal girl. She is usually hypomanic, but cycles every so often into mania or depression for a period of time before returning to normal. However, stress (and drugs/alcohol if present) can trigger more abrupt switches which are usually more extreme, even by her own standards.

    Also attendant to bipolar depression is emotional dysregulation, which means that she can't control her emotions properly. Simply put, she is at the mercy of her emotions and has little control over the way she feels. Often, it's her emotions that control her rather than the other way around.
