Name: Xelmata RectovenGender: Female
Appearance: School Uniform
What exactly are they?: Xelmata is a Monk, specializing in close combat martial arts. Being an equally trained gymnast, she is balanced in both strength and agility, but she is very flexible and nimble as a compensation for her lack of overwhelming attributes. Despite being a martial artist, Xelmata can and will wield weapons when they suit her needs. She prefers using jian ((Chinese sword)), Balisong ((butterfly knife)) and sniper rifle, especially Barrett XM500. She doesn’t have any active supernatural powers, but her training as a monk gives her resistance to forms of mind control and enhances her chi, the latter allowing her to amplify the power of her punches and kicks.
What's his/her Story?: Xelmata herself was never born to a family with Defender lineage and came from a normal family as an only child. Her entrance into the world of Defender came when, during a holiday trip overseas on her fourth birthday, she and her parents were attacked by a pack of Beast Horrors. They killed and devoured her mother and father, but before they could do away with her, a group of nomadic Monks came to her rescue and vanquished the Beast pack. Taking pity to the orphaned girl, the Monks took her in as one of their own and trained her in martial arts. When she was old enough, the Monks sent her back to her hometown ((which is wherever this school is located at)) in the hopes that she could readjust her life back and to assist in defeating the roaming Horrors.
Other: She has a quirky habit of drawing on any books that belong to her and any stray papers that she finds. Her notebooks, aside from whatever notes written in them, are filled with ornately drawn pictures and sketches.
((Please give me feedback on this. Am I going too crazy with it? Can I improve on any part of it?))
((Looks good to me, I say accepted!))

Name: Aaron MadisonGender: Male
Appearance: I cannot draw humans to save my life, so I'll just describe him. He's got green eyes and brown hair. He typically wears a red T-shirt and jeans. His ever-present backpack is black and rather plain. In battle, he wears little to no armor for increased maneuverability.
What exactly are they?: Similar to the paladins he so loves to play as in fantasy MMOs. His pistol and first aid kit can usually be found somewhere in the bottom of his backpack. His hammer and light armor (got this off the 'net) are stashed at home- which, conveniently, is almost right next to the school.
What's his Story?: Aaron's father is the senior pastor of the local church, and his mother is a teacher. He had a fairly normal childhood. However, at age 8, his father revealed the true family business and began training him. He first learned right from wrong in the most comprehensive sense possible, so that he would not misuse his training.
In his free time, Aaron plays all manor of multiplayer games, updates his collection of fantasy creature figures, and doodles. He also practices scattering hordes of bowling pins with his hammer.
In battle, he excels at crowd control... Especially if that crowd consists of waist-high imps or goblins. Creatures that breath fire or have other ranged attacks give him problems, though, as he has barely any armor and does not carry a shield (you need both hands for one of those warhammers).
Other: The jewels on the hammer's head and the jewel that makes up its pommel are opals, so the color of those areas changes at any given moment depending on the angle that the sunlight hits them from.
Anyone walking into his room for the first time would immediately notice the hordes of monster figures on his dresser, and the lone knight facing them. To the average person's eye, these would just look like the product of an odd hobby- but really, it's a trophy collection. Each of those monsters corresponds to one taken down in the field.
But more importantly, Aaron is not perfect. He has problems with staying clear-headed; a monster can goad him into attacking recklessly if he's not careful. This same issue has granted him some respect among shool bullies, though many visits to the principle were made in the process.
((Ooh, a Paladin, like Daren. Except a different kind, cool!

Name: Lisa Delorme
What exactly are they?: Lisa is an Angelic Knight. Descended of the Knights Templar but divergent from the original Holy order. The Angelic Knights do not seek guidance nor orders from the Church unlike their Templar brethren. Instead they ally themselves to no master or organisation. They believe in a higher calling and that the presence of Angels guide them in spirit. Angelic Knights take a vow of poverty and see the gains of material possessions as a weakness. However in order to hide amongst the common man they have some leeway but tend to be on the lower end of the poverty line. Since her birth, Lisa has been trained in the combat of swordsmanship. This has developed her upper body strength and her leg muscles. An Angelic Knights weapon of choice is a Broadsword and Lisa is no different. This strength does come at some cost and because of heavy hardened muscles her speed is not great but her proficiency and accuracy is. Angelic Knights although fighters do have some spiritual abilities. They can sometimes sense the supernatural and very rarely have visions. They believe it is the Angels bestowing wisdom upon them in which they must learn to understand.
What's his/her Story?: Lisa was born and raised as an Angelic Knight. It has been her life since she was a child. Her father was a great Angelic Knight. Proven in battle against the dark forces time and again. It was from him she learnt everything it was to be one. Of the devotion and sacrifice one must endure in order to protect and serve the common man. Of the divine power of the fight and of the greater good. She adored him. Sadly he died not from a monster but from cancer and devastated her world. Her mother was not a Knight and could not and did not want to understand the world in which Lisa was trained in. In fact her Mother was against the idea completely. What little relationship they had died with Lisa's father and the two have been distant ever since. Lisa focus's more on her duty as a Defender rather then spend anytime at home.
Other: Lisa can come across as distant and a little cold. Her hobbies tend towards quiet reflection. Sitting under a tree and listening to the sounds of nature and possibly the whispers of angels. Reading books is another hobby. When it comes to the Monsters, Lisa is just as cold and determined. Years of hard training have honed her instincts. She is more quick to strike then to ask questions. Her life has been to defend ordinary people. To protect and serve them. And she will do that at all costs.
((That is an interesting character. I say, accepted!))
