1) Why were Gil and Jason friends? I mean, yeah, they met through their parent, but am I to presume that Jason was somewhat less of an asshole when he was 12-13? As well as the whole "You're not Nevadian! You don't understand what it's like! You're not one of us!"
...oh right, only applies to women named Liu XD
2) I don't recall Jason's parents trying to kill him, so much as they were described as distant. I could be misremembering, of course, but eh. Jason being the dick that he is would do such a thing, especially, IIRC, he found out that his stepmother killed his biological mother and his father covered it up.
3) Fuu sounds like an interesting character. I wish she showed up a bit more, but oh well.
4) We discussed the PGA swipage over PM. I gave you my consent, especially since the Mk. I and II were around for a while as martial arts/sporting goods. The Mk. III that Liu has, however, has certain unique properties...which will be detailed some other time.
5) Liu is on team "God Dammit Gil and Jason!"
To be honest, I probably won't be updating Drake's Wiki for a while, mainly because I went through two reformats on my computer, thus I've pretty much lost all of my character notes. This means that I have to recall all of Drake's abilities and stuff from the last update as well as how to word the more complicated stuff.
Long story short, too lazy right now.
EDIT: I just realized that Drake's page is going to be epically long, since I have to finish his pre-God Mode, then write his God Mode, and finish it off by writing Vargas!Drake's bit.

Man I need to update James's profile...the only thing that is on his profile is his half retconned back story...
I don't think I ever joined wikicadia though...

That was good.
Now, notes on my thoughts. Something I am sure you are all fascinated by.
Why do I think of Alice as live action?
First of all, she'd look bad animated. Her telekinesis shown by outlines and move lines, her shadow form a black smudge on the ground, that does not do her justice. Computer animation could, but anime is not that. I've seen Avatar: The Last Airbender, Teen Titans, a lot of cartoons, and I know what looks good on those screens. Alice is not one of them. Probably a reason the AMVs Cleric posts every once in a while never make me think of Alice.
Second, I have always imagined an actress for Alice. I've always wanted facial expressions, a real girl instead of just a voice. There can be incredible range and depth with anime, no doubt about it. But I've always imagined a real girl playing her, the face I never see. The tired voice rasping along when she talks. A girl who can pull off casual joy and true despair.
There is non-live action stuff that could do her. IMO modern comic art could pull her off, as could most computer generated stuff. But the exgageration of anime and manga is not something I think would translate well into Alice King. It would be dangerous enough to translate her into a visual medium. Losing her internal monologue is something that would worry me.
Hmm, so I updated Claude's profile and got rid of the excess fighting skill techs.
I'll save that last technology technique for tomorrow. It's grossly overpowered, but it's past the end of the game so it isn't so bad.
I wonder what Hilda's thoughts were on some of the other dragons
like I know her and Ramus never really interacted but I don't see the two ever coming to blows against each other
they label me a villain cause of how I express my feelings
Angela Santos, Firstborn of Emanulle and Aureole Santos, The Road by Fate.
14 (as of completed profile)
She dresses in the high class style her mother favored.
She has some of her father's build and eyes, being less chesty than her mother was and slighlty shorter. Her hair is brown, a lighter shade than her mother's.
At first glance she might remind an Arcadian of Juni when she fights. She manipulates space as a favored trick. Soon an observer will notice key differences though. Angela does not teleport spam, and her magic is far less direct. She is a support character, working buffs and debuffs as an expert. When she takes to battle without support she shows a far more brutal style.She never fights directly if she can help it, using stealth and her powers to keep enemies at an arm's length. As changed as it is, someone who fought with the Titans would know the signs of someone who trained under Alice King.
Emanulle and Aureole married after Arcadia in the middle of what was later called the Wolf and Tiger Crisis. At the time it was known as "get out of bed, Alice just started fighting Jason."
Angela was delivered six months later by Jason Sun. This marked the end of the crisis, as Liu forced the two to talk with Sara and Aureole's help. The two finally agreed to stop fighting, mostly because Liu managed to depower Alice and get Jason's assets frozen. The two agreed that neither one could function like this, so they hammered out an agreement.
It was later seen as an omen of Angela's life that her birth was marked by a peace accord. When asked about it Angela laughs and says that omens like that are a piece of crap. No one is sure where she got her mouth from.
Angela was a model child during her first few years. She trained dutifully as her mother had done, though she never took to physical combat. She prefered the lore of her father's race to the power of her mother's. That this was a mercy was not known for many years after that. Angela read voraciously the tales of the Titans and those who came before them, learning of orders of being that surrounded her world. And she dreamed of talking to them. She set her eyes on the stars, dreaming of breaking open the door of the stars. She yearned for space, to make meaningful contact with other Children of Elohim.
She was first found trying to summon a demon at the age of seven. She was trying to get a first hand account of the Reality War. It was Alice who found her in the middle of it, finding the cave near the beach house where Angela had setup her materials.
Angela never summoned a demon again. But she did learn magic. She was not a Witch of Ashur, but many of the same skills applied, and a lot of knowledge did. Angela never went to Arcadia. She spent those years studying personally under the Last Queen of Witches. This is almost certainly responsible for saving Alice's life. Angela was just as arrogent as Alice, but she was generally less abrasive. Someone who could actually act as a diplomat following her around was a boon of incredible proportions. Angela recieved a unique education and live experience. Alice determined her "graduated" at fourteen, her education of seven years striking Alice as a nice amount of time. Alice topped it off with taking her to the Celestial Mothers, who gave her a prophecy and a name."What do you think you're doing?" Alice knew exactly what Angela was doing. Alice was not a demonologist, but it was hard not to learn something about it when spending a sixth of your life studying magic.
"I was just casting a spell, okay?" The girl laughed. "It's an invocation of knowledge. I was just trying to get some background on the Reality War. You really inspired me, ma'am, with all the information spells you have."
"You were summoning a demon. I'm not your mother. I know magic." Alice glared at her. "What were you thinking? Even I know not to summon demons. And that's saying a lot considering the things I've done to myself for power."
"Well, fuck. There goes that story." Angela laughed. "I had it all planned out too."
"Don't let your mother hear you talk like that." Alice warned. "She has no proper respect for children disrespecting their parents." Alice sat down next to Angela indian style. "You didn't answer my question. Why were you risking demon summoning? I know for a fact that there are easier and more reliable ways of learning. Summon a Dreamer through time, or summon a ghost who lived through the period. Plenty of options for beings that don't want to screw you over."
Angela looked at Alice, brushing her hair back a bit. "I just wanted to know I could, okay? Mom killed Sinnie when she was just a kid. And she never did this. Neither did Dad. I just wanted to know I could."
Alice suddenly had a devilish look in her eye. "Alright, than do it."
"What?" Angela stared at her, violet eyes wide.
"You're seven years old. That's about the age of reason if I have my English history straight. Let's see what you can do. I won't stop you." Alice got up and went to the mouth of the cave, brushing dirt off her jeans.
Angela finally managed to stop gapping and collect herself. Her small hands worked on Akkadian cuniform, making absolutely sure. Finally she got into the protective circle, and started to whisper in a language that Apoc Demons had once spoken. Alice watched impassively, flicking a handful of fire in a circle around her head.
After sixteen minutes, magic happened. The pentagram turned dark, and than erupted with fire. When the fire was out a demon stood in the center, looking very impressive to the young girl.
poser Alice thought to herself.
"Little girl, why have you summoned me all this way?" The demon laughed as he spoke, testing his bindings.
"I have questions on the Reality War. You are going to answer them." Angela told him. She did her best to sound grown up and authoritative. She didn't even shake.
Alice watched the rapid interrogation, keeping her face hard to read. Finally, it ended. Angela thanked the demon and cast a spell, returning him to the pit.
"So, did I just fucking do that or what?" Angela shouted and pumped her fist into the air.
"Alright, my plan of letting you fail miserably and saving your ass failed completely. Never do that again, ever." Alice told her. The witch glanced her over and examined the cave once again.
"Alright, you're good. Incredibly good. Not many adults would risk that." And Alice smiled. "Okay, you've proved yourself. But I can't ever let that happen again. Okay, you've been drafted as my student. I'm going to teach you magic now. And you are going to become excellent at it.
Strength:"Heir of Two Great Houses, you carry a great burden inside you. Your life is filled with love, yet your heart is never quiet."
"Daughter of Above and Below, there will come a day when you must chose between your heart and your soul. On that day, you must forsake both to survive."
"Demon Witch, thou hast been named The Road by Fate. Go, fulfill thy destiny."
Weapons Mastery/Fighting Skill: 10
That was a pretty interesting read, more so than I thought it would be. I guess time turned Alice's headdesking stupidity into ballsy wisdom.
I don't mind you doing Juni's family either. I'll just consider it one possible future at best though, and veto it at worst. As long as that's the stakes, then I don't think Dog or ET would mind either.
