Simon and Finnley
Lightning Elemental
Resists Nature, Weak to Fire


Appearance/Personality: Simon is a simple bear with simple needs. He growls like a bear, he eats meat and fish like a bear, and he walks on four legs like a bear, but if he's attending a nice dinner party he might walk around on his two hind legs. He can't do it for very long and it's much more comfortable to walk on all fours, but Simon is very polite for a bear and so he tries to use good manners around guests. His left arm is a mechanical prosthetic, but Simon doesn't really like to talk about how he lost his bear arm, or how it got replaced with a rather spiffy metal arm. Perched atop his snout is a small pair of spectacles because Simon, despite being a clever bear, does not have the best eyesight in the world even by bear standards.

On his back is his best friend Finnley. He will gladly tell you that his full name is Finneus Tarche the Second, but he doesn't mind being called Finnley as it is shorter and more convenient to say in casual conversation. Finnley claims that he is a shark, even though he only appears to be a backpack in the shape of a shark, complete with a zipper mouth and button eyes. Finnley also claims that he is a scholar, scientist, and a true man of discovery, which can be at least halfway believed considering that he is a backpack capable of fluent speech. Finnley can even understand Simon, translating his grunts and roars for his less animalistic companions.

Oh. And here's a picture, if you're into that.


Playstyle: Base stats are fairly balanced, leaning towards a tanky bruiser. Accuracy is on the higher end for most attacks, thanks to Simon's glasses and Finnley's perfectionist tendencies, though Energy is on the low end, as Finnley's devices aren't very efficient, and bears do not have the greatest metabolism in the world. As for skills, they are split into two general categories. Simon's special attacks focus on locking down single targets, unleashing grizzly attacks that enemies will have a tough time bearing. Finnley's techniques, on the other hand, are more suited for dealing with crowds or helping Simon out in a pinch. Here are some examples for skills to give a general idea.

[Simon the Bear]
Bear Hug - Squeezes the target to deal damage and restrict enemy movement, improving the accuracy of allies who target the same enemy.
Overbearing - Rushes at an enemy, knocking them to the ground. The target's defense is reduced until Simon's next turn.
Grin and Bear It - Simon stands his ground. If attacked that turn, he makes a powerful counter, and survives at 1 HP if he would otherwise be KO'd.

[Finneus Tarche II]
Hammer Head - Dispenses a sturdy helmet for Simon to wear, slightly boosting defense and protecting Simon from disabling statuses (stun, silence, etc).
Tiger Shock - Fires an electrical bolt that bounces between enemies, with a chance of stunning or slowing those struck.
Great White - Fires an enormous beam of pure white energy, striking all enemies. Its wide range gives the attack impressive accuracy.

Despite being two very different creatures, Simon and Finnley are treated as one character, sharing the same turn and using the same stats. It wouldn't make much sense for a sentient talking backpack to be able to hop around on its own, now, would it?

Alright, guys. Thank you for the applications. However, I decided to extend the signup phase for about 3 to 4 days to give other people a chance. Until further notice, good luck!

Hello there! Unfortunately, I decided to skip the individual introductions. However, I have made my decisions, so take a seat and get ready to anticipate stuff.

Hence, our 10 lucky champions who will take on Mechanus are:

No need. Joining the Discord group is completely optional, though I'd appreciate it if you do. It's just there for the sake of convenience.
For now, we are just setting up the game. Thank you for signing up.

Alright folks. This waiting has gone on for long enough, so let's get this show on the road!

I hope you guys are okay with roleplaying. To make things more interesting, players are free to write out what the characters are up to/feeling/doing/thinking in the form of mini-scenes. The only condition is that it does not make absurd deviations from the game.
Also, please bold actions that will impact the game.
