Jack Winter

An antisocial, depressed raputoru with anger and angst issues.

0 · 234 views · located in Dorm 2

a character in “Mahō no kegawa Boarding School”, originally authored by Abraxas_Axis, as played by RolePlayGateway

Description

Name: Jack Winter
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Species: Raputoru
Physical Appearance: Jack has dark green scales, yellow eyes, a sharptoothed mouth that always seems to be scowling, and a mohawk-like set of ridges that run from his brow to the tip of his small tail. He wears a hoodie under his school clothes. He likes his hoodie.
Personality (Plus some background): Jack was born near the border between Amartia and Mikoko, and many of his relatives lived in the latter. Unfortunately, his house caught on fire when he was very young, and both his parents died. He was taken in by his aunt and uncle, but he grew up depressed. It didn't help that the kids at his school bullied him for being antisocial and a foreigner. One day, he lashed out with a powerful cryokinetic attack. Nobody was severely harmed, but families pressed charges. The judge instead took pity on Jack and sent him to Mahō no Kegawa Boarding School so he could learn to better control his magic.
Jack's priviledge hasn't changed him. He still doesn't like to interact much, but will work as a team if they really need him. He is depressed from his parent's deaths, his past bullies and just everyday life. He tends to have a hot temper.
Dorm Building: B
Class Schedule: [Kinetic] [Cold] [Phys Ed] [BMS] [History] [Science] [Math] [Solid] [ELA] [Liquid]

So begins...

What a dump, Jack thought as he got off the bus that had driven him and some of the other students to the school. I didn't ask to be here.
His aunt and uncle would tell him to be optimistic. That would've been fine, except he'd had most of his joy wrung out of him during his life up to this point. He was only here because the judge had took pity on him and let him be here.
Maybe it will be okay. Maybe I can get through four years at this school without any big problems.
He sincerely doubted that.

An excited Helena was chatting animatedly with Sumizome. Well, it was rather one-sided, since Sumizome was mute, but she was making the exact reactions Helena wanted nevertheless. Some might have found that natural, seeing how Sumizome was a construct controlled by Helena's subconscious mind, but one would be surprised how often the subconscious mind and the conscious one don't agree.

This used to happen a lot once Helena had found out the nature of her 'friends', the girl being in denial over them being mere puppets, trying to lie to herself, but in the process of laying most of her old constructs to rest, she came to accept the part of self that had controlled them.

Even now she was aware that Sumizome was not quite real, but Helena took her reactions at face value nevertheless.

(A part of the reason she had chosen to study the fields of magic she was already proficient in, was in order to be able to make her constructs develop their own rudimentary minds after all.)

She noticed a lone Raputoru, and waved to him, before jogging up to him, Sumizome following her at a sedate pace. while making a somewhat exasperated face.

"Hi", Helena said brightly, "Are you a first-year too?"

"What do you think? I'm obviously younger than everyone else, and nobody's trying to chat with me like I'm their friend or call me out." He was feeling bitter, and didn't feel like talking to this one random girl. He noticed the black-haired tora girl standing behind her. "You got anything to say either?" he asked her, for good measure.

For a moment Helena looked as if she was debating with herself, an uncharacteristically shadowed expression on her face, the moment passed though.

"That's a rather cynical way to look at things, isn't it? If you don't have friends yet you just need to make them", she said, smiling brightly again.

She paused for a bit, thinking about what she just said, and realizing how it could be misunderstood. She didn't quite think of the chance of him -and most other persons- actually misunderstanding her meaning was very small.

"As in go meet people", she began clarifying, "And maybe become friends. Sumizome and I really aren't a good example, her being the result of the other type of 'making' a friend. She's mute by the way. I haven't managed to give her vocal chords yet."

Jack raised a scaly eyebrow. "'Give her vocal cords'?" he said. "Far as I know, there's no such magic that allows for the creation of people."

"That would imply she's more than 'just' a solid illusion acting on my subconscious needs though", Helena said, airquoting the 'just' with a grimace.

She shrugged right after and continued,

"Not that I quite care about said true nature, she's been a permanent fixture in my life since before I can remember. At this point I literally can't live without her or Kishi."

She looked at the place Sumizome had been at, realizing that the construct had been uncharacteristically non-intrusive in this conversation, only to find her not in said place. There was still a slight drain on her magic, so it wasn't like Sumizome had dematerialized.

"Erh. Seems like I have a feline to find. Seems like we'll have to continue this chat later, pun not intended"

Jack watched her go off after her apparently illusionary friend.

She seemed nice enough.

He continued off towards the school building.

Jack just sort of watched the two girls from afar, leaning on a street lamp. Some teacher who seemed overjoyed for no reason had given him a flyer with his schedule and room on it. He didn't feel like checking out the room or his roommates-to-be right now, so he just loitered, looking at the school, the grounds, and the one semi-cuckoo girl handing out baked goods like cheap cigars.

Jack just stayed where he was, honestly not caring if anyone saw him.

Helena winced, of all the possible buns for Tsumiki to get, it had to be a chocolate one. "Some are", she said, "Although there's also meat buns, melon bread and buns filled with red bean paste"

Helena noticed Jack in the background, but before she could wave to him, Tsumiki asked her next question.

She watched Sumizome languidly walk over to him instead, and her attention turned to Tsumiki again.

"I'm in B, what about you?"

Jack watched the tora from earlier walk over. There was something strange about her stride. Almost... unnatural. But that didn't make sense.
He was about to ask her what she wanted, before remembering she apparently couldn't talk - at least, that's what her companion had said.
"Uhm." Jack said. "Is there... is there any way for you to, y'know, write what you want on paper or something? Here have this." He handed her some paper and a pencil.

"Not yet", Helena answered Tsumiki, before adding, "We could do so together if you'd like?"

Helena took a guts pose, "It'll be an adventure!"




Sumizome took the pen and paper, before handing Jack a meat bun, seemingly as payment.

She began to furiously scribble on it.

She proudly showed the paper to Jack. On it was a childishly drawn picture of what was supposed to be Jack standing next to Helena and Tsumiki, all of them smiling. For a given value of the word. the drawing representing Helena was grinning, the drawing representing Tsumiki was laughing, and the character representing Jack was not quite laughing, but he did seem to have a slight smile. (or at the very least an absence of an unhappy expression)

In the background was an idling supposed-to-be-Sumizome playing with a butterfly with a seemingly armoured person facepalming at her.

She held out her hand and looked at Jack with hopeful eyes.

Jack looked at the paper, then at Sumizome, then at the paper again, then at the meat bun, then at the paper. Then, he shrugged and said, "Okay. Well if you want me to hang out with your friends, I don't see why not." The meat bun also helped to convince him to join Tsumiki and Helena.
He walked over to the two girls, meat bun in hand, Sumizome close behind. "Hey," he said to Helena. "Apparently, your mute tora friend wants me to hang out with you guys." The tall raputoru took a bite out of his meat bun. "So, what are we going to talk about?"

Helena glanced at Sumizome, who was making a victory pose behind Jack's back, before focussing on the Raputoru again.

"Well... Tsumiki and I were planning to check out our dorm building", she began, "We're both in B apparently. Which building are you in?

At last, they reached the giant dorm building. 5 stories tall, with two wings - one for boys and one for girls - as well as a center area which held the breakfast rooms, libraries, nooks and lobby.
"Welp," Jack said, "This is where we split, I guess. We'll be having roomies in our dorms, so that will be fun to figure out, I guess. See you in school."
Jack walked out of the lobby to the right, which led to the boy's lobby. He took an elevator up to the 5th floor and to his dorm room. He unlocked it with a swipe of the keycard he was given, and opened the door.
Upon which a giant pillow flew into his face.
Jack stood there, stunned, as the pillow slid off his face. His three other roommates were apparently having some sort of pillowfight. All three were humans - Figures, Jack thought - and seemed to be having a blast. Jack, however, was not in the mood for a pillowfight. At all.
He took his bag, chose a bed that seemed to be mostly unoccupied, set his bag beside it and flopped upon the bed, upon which he promptly fell asleep.
