Magical Abilities

Post by Elijah Krum on Fri Aug 26, 2016 11:16 am

Magical Abilities

There are three levels to every character ability:

  • Beginner - a N.E.W.T student or a character who is new to an ability
  • Intermediate - a character with a decent level of control and experience
  • Advanced - a character with particular skill, control and experience

All players are reminded that abuse of abilities within threads may lead to that ability being rescinded.

A history is required before these abilities can be accepted and a role play is also required to see them in action. For cases where the character has learnt the ability via active RP we will accept links to the pertinent threads in place of an RP sample.

Think carefully before applying because students may only apply for a maximum of two abilities and graduates four.




Green Abilities:
Abilities that every character can learn.  You do not have to apply for these abilities and they will not appear on the list.  Your character is free to use these abilities once they reach the age of 17.

Non Verbal Magic

  • The use of a spell without the incantation being spoken aloud.
  • Non verbal spells are usually weaker than their verbal counterparts.
  • May not be combined with wandless magic or the unforgivables.


Apparition

  • Characters who leave Hogwarts before they turn 17 should arrange to learn through the Ministry or an employer.
  • Allows the caster to disappear from one location and reappear almost instantly in another.
  • Requires a wand
  • Requires the caster to be familiar with the location they are apparating to (ie, your character cannot apparate to a location they have not at least seen before).
  • Some areas, such as the Ministry and Hogwarts have anti-apparition wards.  These places cannot be apparated into.
  • Beginners can only apparate a few miles at a time.
  • Inter-continental apparition is illegal, and practically impossible without killing yourself anyway.
  • Incomplete apparition resulting in injury is known as splinching.


Wandless Magic

  • Should be taught through RP with a mentor
  • The ability to cast spells without a wand.
  • An incantation must be used.
  • May be volatile.
  • Weaker than wand aided spells.


Orange Abilities:
Abilities that are learned, but require training. These abilities can only be applied for by characters over the age of 15. When applying, describe what kind of training the character went through, and include a brief roleplay sample of the ability's use.

Legilimency  

  • The ability to sift through another person's emotions and memories.
  • Does not confer the ability to read thoughts.

  • Requires physical contact
  • Mostly used in the healing professions
  • User must properly ground themself to prevent taking on negative energies
  • Cannot be used to heal one's self


Red Abilities:
Abilities that are strictly graduate only. Applications will be held to a very high standard, and require a description of training and a roleplay sample of the ability's use.

Memory Manipulation

  • The ability to alter another's memories or plant false memories
  • Sub branch of legilimency
  • Can be resisted with training


Medium

  • The ability to communicate with deceased souls
  • Cannot compel these souls to answer, or do their bidding


Elemental Magic

  • The ability to manipulate elements
  • Beginners can only manipulate the element they have an affinity with
  • Advanced users may learn to manipulate a secondary element
  • Elemental magic users can never learn to manipulate the element in direct opposition to the one they are naturally inclined towards (ie, Earth & Air or Fire & Water)


Portkey Creation

  • The ability to turn an object into a portkey
  • The object is usually junk, or some other easily overlooked item
  • Must have a license from the Ministry for Magic


The Unforgivables


  • The ability to successfully cast any of the Unforgivable Curses
  • Characters without this ability may attempt to cast these curses but will be unsuccessful
  • Requires relish or enjoyment of the victim's suffering
  • Cannot be cast silently or wandlessly
  • Please take your character's personality into account when applying for this ability


Inherited Abilities:
These abilities require a brief history outlining the path of the ability throughout the character's lineage, as well as a description of training and roleplay sample of the ability's use.

Metamorphmagus

  • The ability to change one's appearance without the use of spells or potions
  • Must register with the Ministry of Magic

  • Prophecies are always witnessed.  The witness must report the prophecy to the Ministry for Magic.


Heightened Sensitivity


  • Possessed of senses heightened beyond the limits of normal human perception.
  • Strictly limited to the present information
  • Heightened sensitivity in one sense makes heightened sensitivity in other senses more likely.

  • Likely to enlist the help of a "spirit guide"
  • Souls are more likely to answer an ancestral medium than a regular medium due to the blood bond.

  • While separated, the soul is invisible to those without Heightened Sensitivity
  • Astral forms can pass through solid objects, but not certain magical wards
  • Cannot travel too far from the physical body, the distance varies according to experience (and death may result)

[*]Aneta Markova ([color=#990000]Animagus [/color])
[*]

Name: Aneta Markova
Age: 28
Abilities: Animagus
Skill in that ability: Advanced
Training: She used to train with her father from time when she was 8 years old.
She had a lot of trouble in first 7 years because she was young and she wasn't really interested in that. Many times she was stuck like half animal-half human before she became really good at that.
Brief RP: Carmen was standing in front of Adrian. She can't even listen to him, he was talking about something but her mind was far away from him and this place, DE residence in Switzerland. After about five minutes, she realize that she must to go.
Ugh, she really hate apparation. Well, foxes are really fast.
"Sorry sweety, I must go" she smiled and then, as her father taught her, she close her eyes and imagine little fox. When she opened her eyes, she was one.


Code:

[*]Aneta Markova ([color=#990000]Leglimency[/color])
[*]

Name: Aneta Markova
Age: 28
Abilities: Leglimency
Skill in that ability: Advanced
Training: She was training with her father because he used to think that she needs to know how to enter in someone's mind if she wants to be a good DE. They start training when she was 12 years old and trained every day. Her father was good at occlumency and he forsed her to try to enter in his mind.
Brief RP: "I know you are lying, so please, be nice and tell me the truth. Where were you last night?"
Carmen's voice was almost deathly quiet, which means she was really angry.
"I told you" she start speaking while smiling, "I know you weren't in your house, so tell me where were you!?" she looked at that man, scared but still trying to lie to her.
"Leglimency!" she pointer her wand at him, looking into his eyes and trying to concentrate. For about five seconds she saw with his eyes the past, pictures so alive that it looks like if she really was there.
Well, he really was at home.


Code:
[*]Aneta Markova ([color=#990000]Memory Manipulation [/color])

[*]

Name: Aneta Markova
Age: 28
Abilities: Memory Manipulation
Skill in that ability: Intermediate
Training: She started learning this at age of 24.
Her trainer was her father's old friend from Russia who came to Switzerland.
She became really good at leglimency so she thought it would be useful.
Now she's training by herself when she knows how to do that.
Brief RP: "Okay Aneta. Look at me and try to change my memory. Make me believe that I ate ice cream 10 minutes ago" an old man, whose alias was Mario, looked at Aneta and smiled.
She nodded and pointed her wand at him.
She looked at his eyes trying to make him believe that.
"Did I do that?" she asked and Mario nodded.
"Well done, but you mast continue training, it won't be easy and it will took a years before you become really great".

Re: Magical Abilities

Post by Senona Brânduşa on Sun Oct 02, 2016 2:40 am

Code:

[*]Name ([color=#990000]Animagus[/color])

Name: Senona Brânduşa
Age: Twenty
Abilities: Animagus
Skill in that ability: Advanced
Training: As is typical of Wizarding Academies such as Hogwarts - or, in Senona's case, Castelobruxo - the theory of Animagus transfiguration was a subject covered by Castelobruxo Transfiguration Professors to Third Year students as per requirement of the school year's syllabus. This was not, however, Senona's first introduction to the concept of Animagi; among the more typical tales, or rather, "bedtime stories" told to young wizarding children - such as Tales of Beedle the Bard & other classics - Cirilla Eulália de Mérida Amor-Brânduşa (Senona's Mother) had added grand stories of famous Animagi to the circulation. Cirilla herself could count herself among the Animagi registered with the United Kingdom's Ministry of Magic, but had not divulged this fact to her wide-eyed & fascinated children during the telling of these "stories"; not until her twin daughters had simultaneously received their acceptance letters from the Brazilian School of Witchcraft & Wizardry, did Cirlla Eulália de Mérida Amor-Brânduşa so much as hint at the possibility that there may be such a creature of Transfiguration in their (her daughters') midst (for she had kept even her tradition of telling the twins these classic bedtime stories from the Wizarding World from her husband, their father, so as not to allow him to doubt Cirilla's sworn commitment to raising Sousa and Senona as ordinary Muggle children, should either, or both of the twins reveal themselves to be Squibs, like their father before them). Thus, Senona's fascination had begun far earlier than her Third Year at Castelobruxo; from childhood, she had begun to dream of a body, shared with a beast, a woodland creature with a piercing gaze, four legs, & a thus, rippling maple sugar mane. Dreams which quickly became a frequent occurrence throughout Senona's adolescence; lucid visions of dashing between trees, the pads of four clawed 'feet' digging into the rich soil beneath. It seemed to the witch to be the only logical course of action (a rather reckless perspective, given the immense dangers of the process by which a wizard is to make himself an Animagus - a perspective which her Transfiguration Professor had not shared with Senona at first - & who had taken a great deal of persuasion in order to see eye to eye with her) after her graduation from Castelobruxo & before her travels across the Northern Realms to return to the University from which she had only just said her farewells to pursue a wizard far more gifted in the subject of Transfiguration than herself, one of three Professors who had privately tutored the girl in her adolescence (& her education at the Brazilian School of Witchcraft & Wizardry) to pursue help in beginning the process - the very same wizard (Professor) who would see her to the end of the lengthy Transfiguration ritual & her very first transformation.

Brief RP: "You may begin." The pulsing red glow of a minuscule light labeled Recording indicating that the Professor had begun the documentation (for he had always preferred Muggle means; Pensieves had always been so "nitpicky", in his words) of what both parties sincerely hoped would be their last session - not for the sake of finally parting from one another's presence, but for the preservation of his dear pupil, his ex student, now a flourishing graduate. Well, he mentally corrected himself, not now, in this moment... For a brief instance, the reckless & irresponsible decisions that Senona had eagerly persuaded him to commit leading up to the young witch's first transformation as a potential Animagus flooded the Professor's mind's eye. He had taken an oath as a teacher & mentor of his dear students at the school of Castelobruxo; he had sworn to protect them, for as long as they remained under his instruction & care. A lump had begun to form in his throat, making his voice hoarse as he instructed his young charge before him to begin.

Senona, however, was alarmingly calm, her hands, calm - no trace of fumbling, or unsteadiness. Unlike her wiser counterpart, her caring instructor, there was no moment of hesitation - no pause for breath - not a second. Her determination was unwavering, & despite the danger that lay before her - the threat, if not promise of not only a bitter & unpleasant death, but a tormented lifetime, in turn  - she felt no fear, for she had felt all her life during the lucid dreams she had so longed to return to during the majority of her childhood spent conscious, the melding of her mind's eye, with her very being, & the body of the spirit animal that had visited her in her adolescent dreams. She felt she had already experienced the beating of her heart beneath the thick pelt of the wolf; her spirit's true form.

After all of this time, all of the danger, all of his efforts - every single risk he had taken - & every time that he had taken his ex pupil's young life in his own hands - Senona, his ex-prodigy, had, at last, successfully completed her very first full transformation, & thus, completed her trials of becoming an advanced Animagus - whilst the Professor's eyes had closed in his nervousness. He had missed it - eyes, shooting open the second that a deep, echoing roar shattered the silence throughout the forest, only to catch the glint of the light of his lit wand against the enchanting fur of the endangered Canis Lupus Baileyi as the beautiful creature dashed into the shadows, out of his line of sight. But this brief flicker of disappointment that he had experienced was instantaneously dwarfed in comparison by the feeling of sincere, & passionate relief that had flooded throughout the wizard's conscience. "She did it - she survived it", Senona's old mentor whispered, words split in two by a giddy grin. "We did it!" an exclamation which Senona punctuated, & harmonized with as her howls danced about the forests, chasing fireflies at her new form's side.

@Senona Brânduşa - Wait. A couple of things. I am presuming this animagus is a wolf? You do state it, but its not mentioned until last line of the second paragraph of the rp.  

And, second, she's too young to be an advanced level. Regardless of how much training she's had at school, we don't do prodigies here on PA b/c it creates really unleveled game play. She could be intermediate though, b/c obviously as a grad, she'd not be a beginner anymore.

So, just clarify for me that we are talking about a wolf, and whether the intermediate class works for you.  Smile

Age: 25
Abilities: Ancestral Medium
Skill in that ability: intermediate/advanced (she's advanced in trying to block this ability)
Training: Hogwarts?
Brief RP: "No.." Augusta whispered and walked faster towards the doungeons where her next lesson was held.
"Are you sure you don't want it?" the mist with barely recognizable woman's face asked, puting its palm on Augusta's shoulder which made Augusta shiver.
"I'm sure aunt, I don't want to.." she blushed hearing a few snickers as some students laughed at her, probably thinking she's speaking with herself again, "I will not do it. Please, leave me alone now, I have a lesson to attend."

Post by Adrian Blanchard on Wed Jan 04, 2017 7:21 pm

Code:
[*]Adrian Blanchard ([color=#FF6600 ]Animagus[/color], [color=#FF6600 ] Alchemist[/color], [color=#CC0000]The Unforgivables[/color])
[*]

*he's already an animagus

Name: Adrian Blanchard
Age: 26
Abilities: Alchemist - broom maker
Skill in that ability: intermediate/advanced (whichever)
Training: He went through an apprenticeship in one of the biggest broom making store in Switzerland while he lived there so he could find a decent job once his Quidditch career is over.
Brief RP: "Cedar, sir." Adrian answered after careful studying of the branch. "It's used mainly for child brooms due to its performance. Cedar brooms are quite slow and can't raise more than one and a half meters above the ground level, but they're easy to handle." He put the branch back on the table, on a pile of branches he already named and listed their specifications. "That's why people usually buy it for their kids - they're safe. The other man nodded in affirmation and Adrian felt a rush of pride for yet another correct answer. The broom maker didn't let him enjoy in feeling, though, placing another branch in his open palm. "Ebony, sir. Their branches are perfect for tails..."


Name: Adrian Blanchard
Age: 26
Abilities: The Unforgivables
Skill in that ability: intermediate/advanced
Training: He's been a Death Eater for almost ten years, it's them who learn him to cast the unforgivable.
Brief RP: The only feeling he felt was loathing as he watched the woman on the floor – Cindy, she told him her name earlier that night – squirming on the floor in a nightdress that was once deep pink but turned burgundy hours ago, dirty from all the mud on the floor of the abandoned building next to the wizard nightclub. It’s quite a perfect place, actually, no one was able to hear her screams because of loud music and it was fun to watch how her eyes turn full of hope every time she hears someone passing by, hoping that person might help her escape him. Adrian let his wand down, stopping the curse and woman stopped squirming, taking large gulps of air and trying to crawl away from him, once again. It's a dance they performed every time he put his wand down, and by now he was almost perfect in it. With every her try, she was only going deeper in the building and destroying chances of someone finding her here even more. "Stop." Adrian was satisfied seeing that Cindy actually stopped. During the first couple of times, she had some troubles with understanding the meaning of word ‘stop’ but she was slowly starting to learn. "Will you tell me where he is?" Adrian walked towards her, carefully overstepping her wand that lay broken on the floor just a couple of feets away from her, crouched in front of her. "No." Her voice was hoarse from all the screaming, but he heard her clear enough. "As you wish darling, I have all night at my disposal. Imperio!"
