Nora App by BleedingAutumn Nora App by BleedingAutumn

:iconlegacyacademy:

Basic Info~

Name; Nora Lulajay

Nicknames/Aliases; --

Age; 19

Height/Weight; 5'9" 54kg

Gender; Female 

DOB; November 1st

Star Sign; Scorpio

Sexuality; Heterosexual. (Though sometimes it's hard to tell since she appears asexual)

Nationality; English-Irish (Celtic)

Class/Job; Survival Studies 

Race; Were-Raptor? (Species has no acknowledged name due to rarity but Nora calls herself a Primal Beast)

Origin of her Kind; Were--creatures have always existed as famous legends/myths/phenomena but the most known are the wolf ones, Were--beasts do not all originate from the same story or cause. This particular genetic inheritance originated from a tribe of people from uncharted times (Speculated to be Celtic) and their connection with the land and it's inhabitants, that's how the family stories go anyway. Those who made a pact with the land were blessed with gifts of their "spirit animal" known in some cultures as totem animals that are often assigned to people as a defining characteristic that dictates their respect. 

These tribesmen and women were granted this gift to protect themselves as long as they swore to equally protect the land and it's animals also.

This magic lays dormant to every human descendant of this now lost in history tribe, awoken by discovering what their spirit animal is. No obligations lie to the land the tribe drew the magic from and consumed to reform themselves anymore for it is also lost in time.

Functionality; Transformation is not triggered by emotional response or any environmental situation. It's triggered by sheer willpower. The two forms of a were-creature of this kind exist in mutual scale to each other initially but over time this becomes inconsistent depending on which form is used more by the person. For example if the beast form is used more, then the behaviour and sometimes physical characteristics leak over into the human counterpart or visa versa. The longer one form is adopted, the harder it is to change into the other. Healthy transformation is approximately one form at day and the other by night. The human form given the were-creature is born in it develops personality but a substantial time in their beast form will cause their personality to become 'tainted' permanently bit by bit by their beast form's natural instinct.

Abilities;

In Beast form;

:bulletred: Speed/agility; Raptors are a nimble and extremely quick dinosaur, reliant on it's ability to out-sprint and outmaneuver their foes.

:bulletred: Fangs/claws; The presence of clawed hands capable of gripping and flesh lacerating fangs as well as a stabbing talon on each foot.

:bulletred: Tail; Not often used as a weapon but the length and movement of the tail has enough momentum to whip a foe quite hard.

:bulletred: Heightened senses; Raptors have quite superior sense of smell and eyesight.

:bulletred: Tracking; A predator must learn to be able to effectively track in order to survive and Nora is no exception.

:bulletred: Chameleon feathers; In her beast form Nora is capable of altering the colours of her feathers. Not to the point she becomes invisible but would make her initially hard to spot.

:bulletred: Superior social system functionality; Her beast form influences her to know a different perspective of the roles of a community.

:bulletred: Regeneration; Whilst she is not physically stronger or faster than a dinosaur in this form, she is capable of healing quite quickly.

:bulletred: Sleepless; Doesn't need to sleep for whilst in one form the other form rests.

In Human form;

:bulletred: Heightened senses; It is possible to transfer the raptors superior sense of smell and eyesight to her human form without fully transforming.

:bulletred: Tracking; A predator must learn to be able to effectively track in order to survive and Nora is no exception.

:bulletred: Superior social system functionality; Her beast form influences her to know a different perspective of the roles of a community.

:bulletred: Knifesmith/Free-runner; As well as swift and fluid Q and Q combat Nora is quite skilled when it comes to kicking and wielding short blades (Her precision is her most renown blade-related talent) and quite good at escaping should she need to like the slippery bugger she is due to quite refined parkour skills and flexibility.

:bulletred: Double clawshot guns; Exclusive to her combat suit with harness holsters to attach them to at her hips for extra parkour capabilities. 

:bulletred: Regeneration; Whilst she is not physically stronger or faster than a mortal in this form, she is capable of healing quite quickly.

:bulletred: Sleepless; Doesn't need to sleep for whilst in one form the other form rests.

Weaknesses;

In Beast form;

:bulletred: Time; After the 12 hour limit the risk of 'taint'ing her human form grows ever more imminent as well as the strength reserved to change back wilting after that mark.

:bulletred: Pack animal; Her beast form is generally non-confrontational without a pack to back them up and does better as a supporting figure. On it's own it's generally preferred 'flight' over 'fight' unless extremely provoked and presented an opportunity.

:bulletred: Diet; Mentality is depicted by the human side, physiologic is depicted by the beast side. In whether form she must eat the natural diet of her beast form. Raw meat and lots of it.

:bulletred: Transformation Delay; Transformation takes time and quite a bit of pain, not a possibility mid-dispute else it would result in too big a vulnerable opportunity.

:bulletred: Mortality; She bleeds and injures just like a normal living creature and can succumb to anything a normal living creature can.

:bulletred: Communication Barrier; She cannot speak english or any human language whilst in beast form.

In Human form;

:bulletred: Time; The same weakness applies to her human form regarding the 12 hour mark only visa-versa.

:bulletred: Diet; Mentality is depicted by the human side, physiologic is depicted by the beast side. In whether form she must eat the natural diet of her beast form. Raw meat and lots of it.

:bulletred: Transformation Delay; Transformation takes time and quite a bit of pain, not a possibility mid-dispute else it would result in too big a vulnerable opportunity.

:bulletred: Mortality; She bleeds and injures just like a normal living creature and can succumb to anything a normal living creature can.

Fighting Style; Precise and swift. Nora when pushed to fight will sooner hamstring you and dash rather than participate in a full-blown epic battle of environmentally damaging proportions. She has very strong legs, resulting in swift and winding kicks and her accuracy is dead-on making her dangerous with a knife even to those who can heal themselves. She doesn't have mass amounts of stamina though when it comes to combat.

Personality; Nora is a dignified and reserved person, who prefers to keep people at arm's length and observe from afar rather than get involved due to her uncontrollable attachment she inevitably forms with those she accepts as part of her 'pack'. She is constantly testing the people around her due to trust issues and doesn't smile or laugh often but when accepted into her circle she is undyingly loyal, generous and reliable. She hates people who fake and act differently, she considers them inferior and has no need to pretend she is someone that she isn't. That being said she is surpisingly good at lying and witholding the truth as well as going back on promises if she doesn't care about the person involved. But that doesn't extend to theatrics since she considers it pointless and transparent.

To her superiors she is obedient and whilst she gives respect she never silver-tongues or even compliments people really. She exhibits some unusual behavior, quirks if you may that relate to her beast form which can include cocking her head in bird or reptile like fashions when she is interested in something or moving her head sideways to focus on something primarily with one eye rather than both of them. 

She's a very quiet individual and thinks on a very predatorial and practical level, prefering not to get her emotions involved, but that doesn't mean that never happens.

Backstory; Born to a family she never knew, like many other people Nora grew up a foster child bouncing from family to family never quite settling in. In her younger childhood years Nora desired nothing more than for one family to love her enough to adopt her so that she may finally belong somewhere and not have to sever her ties and leave like it always ended with. 

During her early teens that idealism faded away and instead she immersed herself in finding her own person and trying to define herself without the influence of outside ties and used other methods like reading, sight-seeing, trying new hobbies and generally being alone with herself and her thoughts to better achieve self-understanding. It was through that that she drew a strange fascination towards dinosaurs and found herself even more drawn to a newly discovered member of the raptor family, the partial skeleton of the specimen discovered that she observed in a museum dubbed affectionately "Luna" due to it being discovered and extracted on a full moon in a dig.

She felt a strange connection to this creature, something awoke within, and that night on the way home from the museum in a secluded alley-way her first transformation occurred. 

She was confused and lost and terrified of this, and ran as a lost dinosaur for three dangerous days in the rural forest of the current area she lived in before fatigue and desperation finally allowed her the will-power to transform back. But things weren't the same anymore. She had tainted herself, ever little but evident enough that people noticed she was different, stranger than the ordinary girl she was. She could no longer digest normal food and would throw it up upon every attempt. Her foster family was worried, but Nora was aware of how it would seem if she went to the hospital and feared what would be done to her upon this freakish incident.

She knew, like always that she needed to do this alone, so she ran away without looking back. It took much hardship but Nora through calm and calculated self-discovery and experimentation as well as applying her developed ability to research learned of what she was and how her new life was to be lived. 

And now, nineteen years old, she comes to the academy.   


Additional Info/Fun Facts~

Tidbits;

:bulletred: current rendition of Nora's raptor form. Which is approximately 7"0' tall and 17"3' long from snout to tail frill; tinyurl.com/n2p3m3u

:bulletred: She calls her raptor form the Lunaraptor for the specimen was never registered with a scientific name due to lack of bones to form much more than a skull.

:bulletred: Her beast form is coloured with blue, teal, violet, pink, black and white with yellow eyes.

:bulletred: Her accent is slightly Irish.

:bulletred: Her scent is that of a fresh salty zest with a softer, subtle coconut hint after-breath.

:bulletred: She listens to Linkin Park, Skillet, My Darest Days, Thousand Foot Krutch, 30 Seconds to Mars and Red on her iPod (She's a sucker for powerful electric guitar solos). But doesn't dislike any particular genre of music.

Relationships~

Enemies; --

Rivals; --

Acquaintances; 

:bulletred: Yusuke; She met this demon on her first day, from first impressions she finds him to be a little too touchy-feely for her liking and how out of the way he was when escorting her seemed the type of kindness that made her feel he was hiding something from her.

:bulletred: Valikyrie; Meeting her neighbor across the hall Nora was initially interested in the forest demon's origin and what extent her demonic powers covered. Room for common ground to be developed. 

:bulletred: Bubbles; Minimal interaction and only really spotted second-hand. Nothing potentially memorable in regards to Nora's perspective. 

:bulletred: Russel; Nora regarded Russel as tame and mild and was not particularly curious about him nor did she wish to avoid him to begin with. Russel began proving himself to be persistent and Nora found his reaching out to her demeaning and feels he's disrespecting her. Her opinion of Russel continues to descend to less likable places. Nora finds his demanding and preaching attitude of his values agitating and irritating.

:bulletred: Anarchy; Meeting through a dispute with Russel Nora saw a dramatic sobby girl act and until proved otherwise sees her as an incapable, childish succubus of a woman. Upon further interaction Nora has found Anarchy to have a spiteful swirl amongst the earlier judgments she made, not very likeable traits by Nora's criteria.

:bulletred: Helina; Meeting her in her beast form she met the best of the demon, apprehensive of how she'll be treated in her alternate form since people often treated eachother different to how they treat animals she admittedly did enjoy their time together (given there was a free snack involved). Meeting Helina in her human form was smoother than she expected, there's a curious air about the demoness and whilst Nora doesn't trust her, her company isn't undesired. 

:bulletred: Leo; Nora met Leo in the woods whilst hunting for food in her human form. She finds him less irritating than the average student and feels a tad more comfortable in his presence, she also owes him a favor. 

:bulletred:Rezka; She finds the avarian canine anthro strange but not outrightly annoying, which is well enough. He doesn't stand out to her.

:bulletred:Tom; Tom Boltik Nora initially met via signalling him out to entertain her in a game of chases when she was in beast form. When he eventually attempted to kill her out of fear via a plasma canon she now views him with a dismissing regard, but despite that, his lack of initiative to challenge her or confront her causes her to have little to any grudge against him.

Friends; 

:bulletred:Enyo; There's a strange lingering instinctual bond Nora feels for the Dragoness who shares a room with her as if the two were distant cousins. They appear to behave in a similar fashion around each other. Nora finds a certain level of respect and understanding to Enyo, her presence causes a strange notion that has Nora agreeing with her and finding sense in Enyo's actions more than others may. Nora is beginning to see Enyo as a 'pack member' now.
