I figure it makes sense to just list them all here as we and anyone else who might join later makes them.  I'll just be adding one for now.  I figure most of my characters will be post change, but may have one or two go through it as well.  To avoid spoilers, I won't be saying much about the official story for the characters anyone is becoming has become/and focus on their previous identities and how they fit in this world.  This bio will be longer than most others probably will be, since it partially includes an example of how someone goes through the change (though details will vary).

 

 

Original Name:  Yamaguchi Emi (just in case it hasn't been clear, I have been using the family name, given name order for Japanese names).

 

Original Gender and Did it Change: Female, no.

 

Original Age: 16

 

Character They Changed/Are Changing Into: Shidou Hikaru (Magic Knight Rayearth)

 

Is the Physical Change Already Complete (if no, how far along is it?): Yes.

 

Is the Mental Change Already Complete (if no, how far along is it?): Yes.

 

Physical Description (height, hair/eyes, anything else you might want to include and only for characters who have not completed the change):

 

If the Change is Complete and They Have Power(s), Do They Have Some Role in Maintaining the Masquerade, and if so, What Role(s): She has power, but not yet.  Currently a student.

 

Short Bio: Emi had been a quiet ordinary girl.  Young as she was, she still felt restless and questioned what her purpose was.  She was drawn to stories, especially of people her age, and girls her age, accomplishing heroic things.  Hikaru in particular stood out, younger than her and appearing even younger than she looked.  Someone who managed to save an entire fantasy world, with a degree of tragedy involved, that she was ultimately able to overcome.

 

She was ultimately discovered as a candidate for the change online.  Various online communities had been infiltrated by those working under the masquerade to evaluate the various members, starting online friendships, talking for a while.  For the majority nothing comes out of it, it is determined they are either not committed enough or too risky to reveal the process to.  Emi was viewed as a good option though.  Her online friend invited her to meet at a convention, even mailed her a ticket.

 

After arrival they spent a few hours doing ordinary things, until the pair was 'rewarded' with an option to visit a VIP area, which was said to have exclusive activities/merchandise.  The two went back and Emi was introduced to a few who had already gone through the change and proved they were who they claimed to be.  They told Emi she had been chosen to go through the process and that Hikaru had been evaluated to be the character she had most compatibility with.  At first she did not know what to believe, was a little scared, especially that her old identity was going to essentially disappear and friends and family would never know the truth.

 

Excitement, and a desire for purpose won out though.  She was taken to an isolated location to begin the process, watched the series numerous times.  Had her hair died red and given clothes that matched Hikaru's.  The crucial first step was to learn to think and act like the character on a daily basis.  Interact with people as if you were the character, to think of yourself as the character, go only by that name, avoid thinking about your old life.  If you do this long enough, and with genuine desire to embrace the identity, eventually something snaps in your mind.

 

Eventually it becomes natural, and you start to 'remember' things.  It is a mix, you start to remember things in the stories as if they happened to you.  If you watch/read the story at this point, you are hit with a sense of nostalgia and remember how it felt to experience those things, and various feelings you had about other characters as if they were your friends/rivals/enemies/lover.  You also remember new things, other aspects of the character's life, things you never knew about them.  It is a gradual process, the memories coming in fragments, personality and thought processes altering.  At the same time your body gradually shifts to match the new identity and eventually a perfect match.  Eventually, you still remember who you used to be, you know it used to be you, but can only think of that time as if it was a different person.  You have in fact genuinely become the character and that is who you consider yourself to be.

 

Now as Hikaru, she has been sent off to finish her education at the school intended for people like her.  A place to learn how to blend in, coexist with other like her and to use her power discreetly but when necessary.  In theory at least, she won't have to fight for a few more years and even then hopefully only fight to a limited degree.  Unlike Emi, Hikaru is content with this.  After everything she had gone through, she knows it is sometimes necessary to fight but it is something she would prefer to avoid.  She wants to live the life of an ordinary girl, or at least as ordinary as possible in this world that is not her own, but similar to it and to see the interesting people she might meet at such a school.

 

Sexual Orientation: Straight.

At this point I am thinking I am going to end up with a somewhat larger cast of characters, though only play a few at a time, alternating between them as it works for the story, or maybe a mix of a few consistently played longer term and others as side characters that come in and out of the story when appropriate.  Will figure out the details as we actually play.  Anyway, going to start with finishing up a school girl trio (Hikau, Ryuuko and Tomoko).

 

Original Name:  Yukimura Sakurako

Original Gender and Did it Change:  Female, no.

 

Original Age:  16

 

Character They Changed/Are Changing Into:  Matoi Ryuuko

 

 

Is the Physical Change Already Complete (if no, how far along is it?):  Yes.

 

 

Is the Mental Change Already Complete (if no, how far along is it?):  Yes.

 

 

Physical Description (height, hair/eyes, anything else you might want to include and only for characters who have not completed the change): N/A

 

If the Change is Complete and They Have Power(s), Do They Have Some Role in Maintaining the Masquerade, and if so, What Role(s): N/A.  Still a high schooler.

 

Short Bio:  Sakurako’s involvement here is something of an example of networking within the masquerade.  She had been a longtime friend of Emi (Hikaru) and when Emi was still very early in the process of her transformation, she got permission to tell her friend.  Those responsible for maintaining the masquerade do not mind rumor and urban legend about the process spreading around the internet and other places.  But they are very careful about letting more concrete information out and insist on people needing to get prior permission before revealing it in a way like this.

 

Once she became aware of it, and convinced the process was real, it came time to pick a pick a character.  She only had a few criteria in mind:  She liked the character, it was a girl, it would be around the same age as Emi/Hikaru and have some power so they could theoretically fight together after graduation, if it became necessary.  Putting all these factors together, she settled on Matoi Ryuuko.

 

After the transformation was complete, Ryuuko found herself pestered by agents overseeing the masquerade and informing her of the rules and tge school she was being sent to.  As someone who already had plenty of experience with weird schools, she was not as bothered as some people might have been.  She even found the idea somewhat interesting as this school seemed to have an administration that was less likely to get under her skin and lead to fights.

Sexual Orientation:  Probably straight.

 

 

Original Name:  Tachibana Hiroto

 

Original Gender and Did it Change:  Male, yes.

 

 

Original Age:  22

 

 

Character They Changed/Are Changing Into:  Kuroki Tomoko

 

 

Is the Physical Change Already Complete (if no, how far along is it?):  Yes

 

 

Is the Mental Change Already Complete (if no, how far along is it?):  Yes

 

 

Physical Description (height, hair/eyes, anything else you might want to include and only for characters who have not completed the change): N/A

 

 

If the Change is Complete and They Have Power(s), Do They Have Some Role in Maintaining the Masquerade, and if so, What Role(s): N/A.  High schooler, and no powers.

 

Short Bio:  As a social outcast who felt like he was going nowhere in life, it was perhaps a little easy for a man like Hiroko to make this choice and to find someone he identified a little too easily with.  Other than the fact that Tomoko was a girl, he could very easily identify himself with a character like this in nearly every way and the transition went unusually quickly and easily.  Awakened into the ‘real’ world, Tomoko found herself in a situation that was both comfortably and uncomfortably familiar.  She was sort of disgusted about her past life, not sure what to think about someone who would actually want to become her, and especially that it was a man who made the choice (and believing subconsciously there were at least somewhat perverted motives behind that choice).  She was quickly picked up by agents involved in supervising the masquerade, informed she was being transferred to a school for those like her and informed about other details of the masquerade.  Already uncomfortable with ordinary school life and social activity in general, she is somewhat terrified of being transferred to a school where a significant number of the student population has various powers.  There might be strict rules about the use of such power, but on campus those rules are rather relaxed, as long as their use is not obvious to those off campus.

Sexual Orientation: Bisexual, with uncertain preference.

Multiversal

Original Name:  Eliot Dersinger

 

Original Gender and Did it Change?: Male, changed into Female after transformation.

 

Original Age: 21

 

Character They Changed/Are Changing Into: Elizabeth (Dungeon Maker)

  

Is the Physical Change Already Complete?: Yes

 

Is the Mental Change Already Complete?: Yes

 

Physical Description: Silver hair, 5’2 in height, crimson eyes with pale skin. 

 

 If the Change is Complete, what powers do they have, and do they have a role?: The change has left Elizabeth with a multitude of abilities. While originally started off weak, she now is one of the top staff of the Masquerade to gather intel. Her physical powers include increased strength to that of a very fit human and the ability to heal off of blood. Her true power shines within a personal dimension, which essentially is a physical portal that leads into her Dungeon. A large underground area which is filled with traps and monsters that guard the dimension in respective their rooms, this also serves as the place for her torturous schemes to be held. 

 

Short Bio: Elizabeth was once a optimistic male named Eliot who worked as a gas station worker, who was generally bored with his job but it never left any hardships besides the meager paycheck. He eventually stumbled upon a mobile game which he quickly grew to love, for he liked both the gameplay and a certain character from there. He gained habits of biting, staying inside during sunny days to play his game, as well as cutting off connections of his social life.

One night, he felt strangely different. He suddenly felt the urge to ‘feed’ off of others, though he passed it off as one of his other weird things he thinks of. However as time passed, it came to the point in which had killed a civilian and drank the blood from them. The insatiable desire for the blood of others quickly caused him to be more sadistic, planning for the many other victims to come by. He was however caught in the act when he attempted to kill before getting caught by the police.

He should’ve been sent to prison, though was somehow freed by the mysterious  people who called themselves members of the masquerade. He was given the choice to either go along with their offer of changing into someone else and helping them be supplied with important information, or to be sent back to prison with his memories of this encounter erased. Deciding it would be better off to remain somewhat free, he decided to go along with the program of his change.

Overtime, Eliot had taken the name of Elizabeth when the change had completed, a sadistic and blood thirsty vampiric being who is one the Masquerade staff to keep them supplied in information. Despite her job, she was asked to be a teacher at a special school for people like her, which she accepted as a chance to take a break off of the usual things she did. She always did wonder just how enjoyable her students would be like.

 

Sexual Orientation: Bisexual
