"Peace is a lie, there is only passion"

Darasu was born to a family with high standards on either side. To know the creation, you must know the creators.
His mother [Kia Donrul] was born to a Pagan Gypsy family in Lithuania, and spent her life in a traveling circus. The circus was filled with magic users who turned their skills into profit, by exploiting muggles with their simplest spells. This gave her excellent skills at a young age, being able to experiment with magic before her given age without fear. She was then discovered by the professor at Hogwarts, and was admitted into the house of Ravenclaw.

His father [Parul Morata] was raised by a group of ministry diplomats that had a bloodline dating back to merlin as advisors.  The family known as the Morata's prouded themselves on their pure ancestry and talent for Rehtoric. They had been in ancient rome during the years of their golden age, and moved to Ireland in the late ninth century.
Parul was more than competent in his abilities in both quiddich and the arts, and soon gained popularity and guile. After his years at Dumstrang, he moved to Ireland to be near his family. It was here that he met Kia at the ministry of magic, where he served as an Auror advisor.

Darasu is the second and youngest son of the two, and was raised in the traditional aristocratic wizarding style. He was well versed with charms, and played games of backyard quiddich from the time he could walk.

House Request: Slytherin


Cunning as his father, Darasu is a master of speech and persuasion. He knew from a young age that words could overpower actions, and studied the greatest historians of ancient times to learn of true power. He compares his mind to that of Alexander the Great, or Giaus Julius Caesar which only fuels his already birth righted ego.
Socially, he can be amorphous. If there are new faces, he will be much quieter and reserved, preferring to watch and listen then give away his own intentions. Once comfortable with the people he is around, he can be the life of the party.


Light emerald colored eyes, olive skin, and bronze hair makes him quite the handsom face. His thick, wavy hair falls to about his shoulders.

Standing at 5'4, Darasu is a little taller than most his age and has broad shoulders and thick jawline. Years of sports and conditioning have left him with a lean and define physique.

Please reply to one of the Sample Roleplays below.

Option #2

The game had been somewhat of an upset. Hufflepuff roared behind the slytherin table as they waved banners and cheered songs of glory. If he had it his way, he would silence the world around him and enjoy his pumpkin bread in peace. But sadly, magic would have been frowned upon at this time.

For nearly three years Slytherin had dominated the three rings on the quiddich field, due to their synchronized chasers that had been together all seven years of their schooling, up until last year. That was their strength, and the weakness to the later years. Now the team had three new chasers, and they had no team chemistry, most of all the under confident first year who had dropped the quaffle several times during their game.

Darasu surveyed the area looking for the one who blamed himself for the loss. It wasn't entirely his fault, and some of his team mates even tried to console him while he sat with his head buried in his arms. It was really quite diminishing to watch someone of the green and silver house be so weak. Shortly after, the boy got up and stormed out of the Great Hall.

Sighing, the young Morata pushed his plate away and followed the boy known as James with a quickened pace. It wasn't until after several hallways he officially caught up to him. When James turned and shouted at Darasu, he was caught off guard by what happened next.

By the time James had come to a full spin to face him, Darasu had already grabbed the robes of the boy with his left hand, and pushed him back against a wall with enough strength to make a point, but not to hurt him.

" Pull yourself together" Darasu growled, leaving his right hand free incase James reached for his wand out of fear, or anger. Although he doubted this, it was better to be safe than sorry.

"Your a slytherin now, act like it!" He continued, meeting his own green eyes with this boys, fear dilating in James' pupils. " It was one game, and the season isn't over yet. You can still go redeem yourself James, so act like a man and march back to that field knowing you will learn from your mistakes." He finished his little speech then pushed off the boy, turning on heel and walking back to his meal.

Hi Darasu, and welcome to HS.net! Your application looks like it's off to a really great start, but there are a couple of points I'd like to address before we can get you all accepted.

First, your RP response, while well-written and generally looks good, contains a bit of powerplaying. Powerplaying is when your character attempts to control the actions of another, or locks the other character(s) in a thread into a response. This line in your RP response:

By the time James had come to a full spin to face him, Darasu had already grabbed the robes of the boy with his left hand, and pushed him back against a wall with enough strength to make a point, but not to hurt him.

Would lock James into responding as though he had been shoved, which may or may not be okay with James' writer. To avoid powerplaying, you could either remove the reference entirely, or say something like:

Darasu attempted to grab the robes of the boy with his left hand, and tried to push him him back against a wall with enough strength to make a point, but not to hurt him.

The slight change in language gives James' player an out to avoid the action if s/he so chooses. If you could please edit your RP response to remove the powerplaying and post the revision, we'd be happy to take another look.

And finally, the last thing is a minor thing - your user name should be your character's first and last name. We're happy to change this for you; please just submit a helpdesk ticket and we'll get you all set.

Thanks! Please let one of us know if you have any questions.
