Chatterbox: Inkwell

Superhero School RP!

Yes yes I know I technically left but I did say I would still do roleplays occasionally. And I really miss superhero roleplays! So here.

Headmistress Alma Bartley (aka, Mimic), a gifted superhero with the ability to mimic abilities, had decided to finally start a school for young supers. The school, Academy For Gifted Inividuals, was a highschool. Students would each get a private dorm and would get a regular highschool education, in addition to receiving special training to become a powerful superhero. 

She tried not to worry about the strange disappearances of young children all across the world. She was sure these young supers would all be safe. After all, she was the most powerful person in the world. She could protect them.


  1. Three charries per person.

  2. The RP will begin once there’s at least five participants (me included), but anyone can still join after that point.

  3. Charries must be between 14 and 18 years of age, as you can only be a student. However, you can be a villainous student infiltrating the school.

  4. No OP charries--if I see a charrie with too many powers, or powers too strong, I will ask for their powers to be changed.

Superhero Name (Optional): none

Age, Grade: 16 junior

Gender, Pronouns: male he/him

Alliance (Villain, Hero, or Neutral): neutral

Powers: persuasion. He can try and make someone believe something that isn't true or the opposite. However it is very difficult and takes a toll on his memory which is already bad. Only if he really strains himself when using his powers though. 

Other Skills: pretty good at sketching. He sketches what he remembers so he can try to piece things together.

Personality: introverted, scared of making friends because he is scared to forget them. he can be pretty fun to be around though. He loves his friends and wants to help them as much as possible and he really really hates it when he loses his memory. very emotional but he doesn't like to cry in front of people but he can't help it sometimes

Appearance: about 5'9", brownish/blondish curly hair with an undercut, he wears bandannas, overalls and oversized t-shirts. He has glasses, freckles on his face, and a scar on his right arm that goes from his palm to elbow. He's not sure where it's from.

Name: Marlow Fischer

Superhero Name (Optional): Recall

Age, Grade: 15

Gender, Pronouns: they/xe

Alliance (Villain, Hero, or Neutral): hero

Weaknesses: often puts on a mask and hides their fears and true thoughts, gets anxious easily, bad at math, can be really rude when they're annoyed.

Personality: generally gets along with people and likes being around others, but is also a people pleaser and will try to be what other people want to see in them. Pretty easygoing most of the time, unless it involves using their powers or showing their true colors. Xe  is pretty ambitious and wants to learn how to use their powers to help others, but they're afraid of everything that could go wrong and are really hard on themself when they fail.

Appearance: short / average height, pale-ish skin, hazel eyes, slightly wavy brown hair in an almost-shoulder-length bob with green tips. Has a nose ring and is almost always wearing glasses, an oversized olive jacket, and xyr messenger bag.

Other: open to shipping with girls & other enbies.

Katerina’s face is unreadable as we get out of the long, black car and start walking across the freshly cut grass. The Academy looms ahead of us, looking more like a castle than a school for superheroes. There’s a gravel path leading up the gentle slope to the school gates. It crunches loudly beneath our feet.

A small huddle of other students are already waiting--it looks like we aren’t the only ones who showed up early. I stay close to Katerina, carefully watching all of the other kids. I don’t know what powers any of these people have. I wonder if there’s a mindreader. That would be horrifying, and embarrassing.

“I don’t recognize anyone,” Katerina says. “Wait, no--I think I can see a member of the Kaur family.”

“Do you think anyone recognizes us?” I ask. Nobody seems to really be looking at us. I try to search for the Kaur Katerina pointed out, but I can’t figure out who she’s referring to. More kids are starting to show up, and the crowd’s growing much bigger.

“Maybe. We’re not particularly famous, though. Just old,” Katerina responds. She has a point. The Alinskys haven’t done much other than train for the last seven generations or so. Some of the other kids who are from families with a long history of being heroes might know we’re Alinskys, but the grand majority probably don’t care enough to know.

“That’s probably a good thing,” I murmur. “I’m not sure how many people here I trust.”

“I’d imagine it’s safer to be wary of everyone, yes,” Katerina agrees. When she finishes speaking, the crowd begins to quiet. The Headmistress is approaching.

Mimic is tall, with long blonde hair so pale it’s almost white, and it’s in long braids woven into a tight bun. Her skin is a warm, dark brown, and I think she’s wearing a little blush. She has a midnight blue dress on that billows around her legs.

The gates swing open in front of her--I wonder if she was using some other super’s stolen ability to control them with her mind, or if they’re just automatic or something. She stands in front of us, gazing upon our cowering forms.

Or, at least, I’m cowering. Katerina is standing as tall and straight as ever. She’s always been much more confident than me.

“Welcome to the Academy for Gifted Individuals!” She says. There are other supers standing behind her--I recognize most of them. “I hope you’ll enjoy your time and training here. Please follow me and the other staff members inside.”

Mimic turns around and leads us through the gates. We all follow her like little ducklings, the other supers forming lines beside us. I guess they’re our other teachers. I hope they don’t expect too much from us.

We enter the school, and are able to spread out a little more. The four grades are separated--Katerina walks off with the other seniors, and I’m guided to the group of juniors, dragging my suitcase behind me. I suddenly feel very lonely without my sister next to me, but I suppose I’ll have to get used to it. The juniors seem to be the largest grade. I guess that means more people I’ll get to meet. Or avoid.

Question: would you like to ship Emil and Olive? It would be like the quiet couple who only really interact with looks and like slient love language? Just an idea!

I've never done a RP before because I'm scared I won't check at some point and yeah! But here I am anyway and I'm excited to start!

Name: Ellie Onix

Superhero Name (Optional): 

Age, Grade: 14, Freshman

Gender, Pronouns: She/Her

Alliance (Villain, Hero, or Neutral): Hero, starting to become more netural

Powers: Flight, if that is allowed, otherwise wishing, as in they can wish for something and it will be true for an hour, maybe, or 20 minutes (kind of like the story in this month's Cricket!)

Other Skills: Good with animals, Very inteligent, also good at climbing things.

Weaknesses: Not very trusting of others, Not very into her superpower so she's not very good at it. She isn't self absorbed or anything much, but she relies on her intelligence a little too much sometimes, acting on impulse before thinking it through, thinking she must have made the right decision. 

Personality: Queit, Brave, speaks her mind even if its a really mean thing to say, so some would say not compassionate. For example, if she just met you and she thought your shirt was an odd color, she would say "Nice to meet you, where are you going?" "Oh, to a concert? I don't think you should go to a concert in that shirt. It looks off and not very good." Thus, it is hard for her to make freinds. However, if she thinks your shirt looked really good, she would compliment you, so she's not going out of her way to be mean.

Appearance: medium shortish length wavy blond hair pulled back in a ponytail or braid. Medium/ medium light skin tone and rosy cheeks. A bit short for her age.

Backstory: She comes from a long line of heros, but she isn't as into the hero-yness (because thats totally a word) of it all, and is leaning towards neutural. One of her parents died/left when she was about 8, so she has had to look after herself and been alone more than normal for the last 6 years, and her expierences are part of the reason she's leaning toward neutral.

Other: I've never done an RP before so I hope I haven't done this all wrong! But I'm really excited!
