Archived Applications / Charms - Vincenzo Nicolosi
« on: 16/08/2017 at 00:26 »

Character name: Kristoffer Carlisle Vincenzo Cristoforo Nicolosi

Previous and/or Current Character(s) if applicable: All connected to Vincenzo Nicolosi

Character age:26

Character education: Private Tutoring

Strength and weaknesses (details please):
Vincenzo is quite confident in his ability to perform charms and to solve problems. An avid reader, he is happy to show off his education that he says was mostly his own doing. He is very adaptable in his ability to handle spells and is in decent enough shape. Considering he said he was a soldier during the later half of the war, it would be necessary for him to at least pass the physicals. Because of his time at war though, he had found himself being a bit more cautious than what may seem healthy. He doesn’t really talk about his past, only mentioning bits here or there of where he’s been or noting things that he’s witnessed. His military service, he explained, was mostly in the kitchens and at the end of the war, but it is very likely he is lying. His moods can be rather mercurial and that could be because of what happened during the war or perhaps some other trauma that had caused him to be such a way.

Physical description:He dresses quite well for his age, although a bit too casual at times. Dark black hair and brown eyes with thick eyebrows he has facial hair that he keeps trim. Though if you surprise him, sometimes his eyes look different…

Personality (nice, rude, funny etc. Paragraph please.): Vincenzo is a character that is hard to pin down. When it comes to his belongings and general settings, he is rather fastidious. He is the sort that likes things in a certain place and chooses his words wisely. Although his stature makes it seem like he takes things casually, his hair always seems to be the same length and his beard is always trimmed. He is cautious and doesn’t like having people stand behind him, or get in too close, yet he regularly invades other people’s personal space. His attitude can at times seem rather gallivant, as he seems to disappear from a situation or conversation in which he has found himself uninterested. He is a contrarian to a certain degree, especially if it entertains him, and always looks for something or someone to stimulate his mind. If he is not stimulated by an individual, then he will dismiss them. However, he does not like being dismissed himself

Hopes and dreams. Why are you teaching at Hogwarts?: What he hopes to get out of teaching at Hogwarts is some sort of purpose. He is looking for an identity that allows him to forget the past, or at least the parts that give him nightmares.

Biography (500 words minimum. There is never such a thing as too much.):
Born into one of the branches of the extensive Nicolosi family in Italy, he was raised in a comfortable setting with his two brothers. He was the middle child of a brother five years older and a brother three years younger. His mother died while giving birth to his youngest brother, so he found himself not knowing much about her. His eldest brother let him know how special his mother was, a woman that had tamed his father’s wild ways. There is a locket that she had given to his brother, which was lost during the war, among other valuables. His father rarely mentioned his mother, and it was his older brother that mostly raised him. He taught him manners and socialization skills, things that the tutors could not. His father was around at times, but he was mostly distant. He never remarried and always had a far-off look on his face whenever he was home from work. He grew up with tutors coming in and out of the house, most coming to teach him magic, one that taught him languages and then, of course, there was the required music and dance lessons.  He did well in his lessons and was mostly bored. He had fun fighting with his tutors.

When the war came around they all signed up for it. His father and older brother died first, and then his younger brother was reported MIA. Now an orphan and alone, he decided that he would go to his closest cousin (at least with familiarity), Asher Nicolosi-Cadwallader. He needed family in a sense to keep him grounded. He arrived just before the Hexenreich had invaded. Just when he thought the war was over… It wasn’t.

Still, he stayed and he helped his cousin at The Silver Pheonix, becoming an unofficial co-owner. He has been in Great Britain for six years now and he has found himself attached to the place. Living over the Silver Phoenix, he has a roommate which he never really thought he would have. Of course from her talk and experiences, along with Asher’s stories, he found himself curious about Hogwarts. His roommate had worked at Hogwarts for a time. Finding himself alone one summer, he thought he might as well sate his curiosity. To do this, he decided to apply for a position at Hogwarts to see if it really was everything that they remembered.  He thought it would occupy his time as well. Things had been rather stable at The Silver Phoenix and he thought perhaps it was about time to get out and explore more of his new home.

Of course that is the bare bone basics of his history. The only one that people will get out of him when asked and the only one he is willing to tell to the public. When it comes to those that know him, they know a different story. Similar in a sense, and yetm with a few more tragedies and secrets added.

(Please respond to to this in third person past tense. Do not write the other characters' reactions. Only your own.)

It was the largest office in Hogwarts and, perhaps to students and newcomers, the most intimidating. The shelves were filled with various odds and ends, with a place of honor for the Sorting Hat, and the walls held all the portraits of past Headmasters and Headmistresses.

In the middle of the room sat a large desk. Everything was in order, for the current occupant had always despised a messy desk. It was the sign of a messy mind, and she had always favored neatness.

A clock sat on the desk, which currently showed the time to be 2:05. The meeting was supposed to begin at 2:00 precisely.

Along with order, Anneka valued punctuality. She was a very busy woman these days. Even during the summer, she had a number of matters to attend to. Interviewing and hiring staff was only of those matters. The newest potential member of her staff wasn't making a good impression.

She paced the room, black heels clicking against the stone floor. When the door finally opened, Anneka turned, her expression reminiscent of a Russian winter. "You are late."

Explain yourself was what her face said.

Roleplay Response:

He was late on purpose.

Of course, if Headmistress Ivanova had known who she really had an interview with, perhaps she would not be looking at him in such a way. Or perhaps she’d know that it was pointless to make him feel like he had done some sort of wrong. This was how he had always been. Kristoffer Carlisle... Headboy, Head Editor, Quidditch Captain, and Dueling Captain. He had held all those titles, and still, he was always the problem child. The problem child always got attention.

Everyone knew who he was.

Except she did not know the man that was standing in front of her now. He had not expected to actually get an interview with the resume he had sent in. With his spotty education and references that knew nothing of his past five years, the fact he was even called in made it seem like they were desperate. Were they desperate? Or did Ivanova have some sort of sixth sense when it came to knowing who was qualified and who wasn’t?

He gave a bow of his head, a charming smile on his face, “Buon pomeriggio, Signora Ivanova.” Although her gaze was steely, he kept his face passive as he walked over towards an available chair and sat himself down. “Shall we get started? What is it you would like to ask?” If he was late, it was best that they get started then. There would be no apology because it would not be sincere. He doubted Ivanova would appreciate that.

Miss Jackson,

Thank you for your application to Hogwarts! We are very excited to see new people here on the site and we can not wait for what Cassandra will do at the castle. Before we can accept you though, there are a few things we need to address.
  • Your year choices are quite a huge gap, which is okay but to keep your choice of a fifth year, your biography will have to be at least 300 words. Also, since we can not guarantee you will get your first choice, please remove mentions of Cassandra being a first year in your application.
  • Your rp reply has a few things that need to be fixed. For one, please distinguish or delete what is not part of your reply so that it is easier to read. Next, in your reply you state that Cassandra walks away leaving Astrid stunned. Walking away from Astrid does not give her a chance to reply to what Cassandra has said, also you do not know if Astrid is actually stunned at Cassandra's words. Making this assumption is called powerplaying, and it is generally not good rp etiquette to do this.

To get you approved, please edit in the changes to your appliction and reply to this topic with your edited application.

Thank you,
Kristoffer Carlisle

Miss Larsen,

Thank you for your application to Hogwarts, and we are very excited to see what Skade will get up to during the term. There are just a few things that I would like for you to explain and elaborate on in the application before we can go ahead and accept you.

In 1937, there was an event on the board that OOCly is known as the Time warp. This set forward a set of events that would have affected Skade and her family quite dramatically considering she had been raised around muggles, and also has family in Finland and still visits them. You can find information about the Timewarp here. This will mention that muggles that Skade would have known before five years ago, would have disappeared and in 1938 Wizarding England joined WWII.

Also, at Hogwarts we do not have a DADA class that is rped but we do have a Magical Defense class in which she can say she had been apart of, but considering we have a Magical Defense professor you would need to have permission to reference them in helping Skade.

Another thing I want to note is your roleplay response, in which it's great that you're interacting with James, but saying that he was walking away, is powerplaying the character which is against our rping policy (unless given permission by the player).

If you can look at this information and consider how it may have affected Skade as she was growing up, along with editing your rp response to take out the powerplaying part then we can get you approved as soon as possible.

Please respond to this thread with your edited profile.

Thank you,
Kristoffer Carlisle

Archived Applications / Re: Jacklyn Megurine (Jackie)
« on: 10/08/2014 at 15:32 »
Miss Megurine,

Thank you for your application to Hogwarts! We are very excited to see new players and hope you enjoy our community. Before we can accept your application there are a few things we need to go over.

First of all, there is a point in our board plot in which 5 IC years ago, there was an event that suddenly made all the muggles disappeared. Considering that Jacklyn's mother is a muggle, how would this have affected her and her father? If her mother did not disappear, why not? Did she grow up around a lot of muggles? How would she have reacted at first, and would she still feel that lost? If you want to read more information on this event it is written here. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask in the suggestions and questions board.

Next, we need to go over Jacklyn's appearance. It is currently 1942, and during that time excessive piercings (nose, lip, tongue and multiple ear piercings) were not considered appropriate or accepted back in that time period, especially for a girl of 14/15. If you have a plausible character reason for these, then you can go ahead and fill out a special request, but remember during the 1940s she would be considered abnormal. Jacklyn's hair color is also an issue considering that our character creation guideline states:

All applicants should be human in race, and should possess character features (ex: hair color, eye color) typically found in nature.

That means that Jacklyn having pink hair is not very plausible, unless of course she is a metamorphmagus. If you want to keep these physical aspects of her appearance, then you will need to fill out a special request, but we can not gaurantee that the request will be accepted.

Keeping this in mind, if you could take out the multiple piercings, and pink hair from Jacklyn's appearance, along with adding in some more details on how she would be affected by the Timewarp, then we can attempt to get you approved to start rping at Hogwarts during the 1942-1943 term. 

Please reply to this thread with your edited profile.

Thank you,
Kristoffer Carlisle

Thank you for your edits, your profile looks great. Just forgot to ask one thing, and that is: why did Thalia go to Hogwarts?

We have a list of Wizarding schools in our FAQ page, which lists an American School that she could have attended. Why did her mother decide to send her to Hogwarts rather than Salem?

If you can answer that in your bio by editing it in (no need to repost it), then we will go ahead and accept your application.

Thank you, and sorry for the inconvienence.

Miss Lancaster,

Thank you for your application and so far everything looks great!

There is one thing that I need to point out though, and that is although you have requested Beatrix in Gryffindor we can not promise that she will be put into Gryffindor. Because of this, before we can accept you we will need you to edit that part of her biography in which she has been put there. I hope this is not too much of an inconvenience.

Please post your edited profile in the topic as a reply to this topic.

Thank you,

Dear Miss Brookes,

Thank you for your application to Hogwarts. Everything looks good, except there are a few things we need to go over before Thalia can be accepted.

First of all, when Thalia was nine years old she would have been in 1938-1939, which would have been a time after an event that in out of character discussions we call the Time Warp. Icly, this means that on the stroke of midnight of January 1st, 1937 all muggles that were known seemed to have disappeared. Because of this phenomenon, Thalia would not have her parents around (or her brother if he was also not a wizard). More information on the Time Warp can be read here. If you can please consider this and somehow incorporate it into her bio this would help us see her as a character better.

Another thing that I need to point out is your rp response. It is good that you're interacting with James, but having her walking away does not really give much for James to do or say in response. This is supposed to be an example of a post on a board, so that we can see how you'd be able to help move the story along. If you could please edit your response so that it gives James a chance to reply that would be great.

Please post your edited profile as a reply to this topic.

Thank you,
Kristoffer Carlisle

« on: 04/08/2014 at 00:57 »
Miss Davenport,

Thank you for your application, but before we can accept you there are a few things that need to be altered slightly.

In the application guidelines it says that if you are applying for a fourth year student, your biography needs to be at least 300 words. This can easily be remedied by adding in an important plot point that has happened world wide in our community's story.

On the stroke of midnight of January 1st, 1937 there was a phenomenon that occurred. Lights danced through the skies, people felt ill, and the largest thing of all was that all the muggles seemed to have disappeared. Considering that Raine is muggleborn this would have affected her a great deal, because her parents would have also disappeared. If you would like to read more most of the information is written here. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

The last thing is that, here at Hogwarts we rp in third person. If you could edit your rp response to follow this rule then we are all set.

Please reply to this thread with your edited application.

Thank you,
Kristoffer Carlisle

Suggestions & Questions / Re: Levels?
« on: 26/07/2014 at 14:30 »
Okay, to your first question, what you need to do is reapply Grimm as a student to Hogwarts. We will go ahead and have his levels edited to fit his year.

As to the second part of your question, which student gained levels in elsewhere and can you link to what it is that is confusing you?

Elsewhere Accepted / Re: Mardoch Meier {Adult}
« on: 25/07/2014 at 17:28 »
Mr. Meier,

Thank you for your application to Hoggies. We are excited to see another new character, but there are a few things that need to be addressed before we can accept the application.

The likelihood Mardoch would be a German spy in the ministry is very unlikely considering the timeline of when the war started and how old he is. The Wizarding World, entered WWII in 1939. Then its borders were closed for a year, before opening again in 1941. Even then, if the war started in 1939 with Germany being the enemy, it is extremely unlikely to impossible that Meier would get a job in the Ministry unless of course he went through some extraordinary circumstances. Knowing the timeline, if you could edit Mardoch's bio so that it makes a bit more sense historically, and politically then that is easily fixed.

As for the rp, we can clearly see Mardoch's personality with his inaction towards helping Amelia, but this is supposed to be an RP response to Amelia as if she posted this on the board. Having Mardoch simply walk away, does not give her much to reply to and leaves the rp most likely dead. If you can edit your rp to give more for Amelia to interact to, that would be fantastic.

Thank you again for your application. If you can please edit your bio and rp, then repost your edited application in this topic we will do our best to approve it asap.

Thank you,
Kristoffer Carlisle


P.S> I forgot to mention, ICly the Magical World does not actually know what really happened on the new year of 1937. They know there was lights in the sky, that people got sick, and the muggles disappeared, but other than that they just call it a phenomenon, and do not call it the Timewarp. Certainly, Mardoch can ask questions but if you want more information please read here for more info.

Archived Applications / Re: Nico Devlin - Elsewhere Adult
« on: 25/07/2014 at 17:19 »
Mr. Devlin,

Thank you for your application to Hogwarts. Everything is looking great, but there are a few things in your application that needs to be adjusted before we can accept your character into Hoggies.

First of all, levels for an adult elsewhere character can not be higher than 32 levels, in total. Which means, you are given 32 points, to distribute between four categories. The number of levels on the lowest ability must be at least half of the highest ability, and in the case of it being an odd number it is fine to round down. If you can please edit your levels so that Nico has 32 in total, then that is an easy fix.

Now, as I was reading through your whole application it sounds like Nico had married a muggle and had a child with them. This is fine, but about five years ago, on the stroke of the New Year of 1937, all muggles disappeared. OOCly, we know this event as the Timewarp, ICly all anyone knows about this incident was that it happened and they have no real explanation for it. Because it happened though, if Nico's wife had been a muggle she would have disappeared five years ago. If you would like to read more about the Timewarp, you can find an information thread here.

One last thing I noticed in your profile is your rp response. It is great you're writing in third person, but Nico's action that he ushered the Amelia to the side of the street, did not give Amelia much choice in the matter. This is called powerplaying, which is basically takes over another character's action not allowing them to respond how they may want to respond. Of course, this happens sometimes in rps, but without being able to ask Amelia if it is okay it would be best to allow Amelia to decide if she is ushered off the street or not. If you can please edit this, along with putting more detail into your bio, and making note of the timewarp, then we will be happy to look at your application again and accept it.

Please reply to the topic with your edited bio, rather than editing the first post.

Thank you,
Kristoffer Carlisle

Miss Flannery,

Your application is looking great, and we are excited to see you here at Hogwarts and get you to start playing.

Just a note, before we can accept you. You mention that Mr. Flannery (Jude's father), is a squib working in muggle London. On the change of the new year in 1937, there was an event that may have affected his employment, considering that all the muggles (things and places), that were around before 1937 disappeared.

This event is called the Timewarp, and ICly everyone does not know exactly what happened but they do know that the muggles disappeared. OOCly, you can learn what you need to know here.

If you could please edit your biography to include this in some way, then we'll be happy to accept you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask in this topic or make a new topic in the Suggestions & Questions Forum

Please reply to this topic with your edited profile, rather than changing the first post.

Thank you,
Kristoffer Carlisle
