Meet the Author

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) was a Greek philosopher and teacher. Together with Socrates and Plato, Aristotle is one of the fathers of Western Philosophy. Born in Stageira in northern Greece, his father (Nicomachus) was the personal physician to King Amyntas of Macedon. Aristotle (meaning 'the best purpose') was raised as a member of the aristocracy. Aristotle went to Athens at eighteen to continue his education, where he became a student of Plato. In 343, Aristotle was invited to tutor Alexander, son of Phillip II of Macedon (Alexander the Great). While Aristotle's writings covered many subjects, they were the first to create a comprehensive system of Western philosophy, encompassing morality, aesthetics, logic, science, politics, and metaphysics.

Name: Carina Graham Holly. /// Age: 18 /// Gp: Beorealis, God of the north wind. /// Looks: She has mid back length, black hair with startling blue eyes. Her skin is kind of pale, with a bronze tone to it. She is 6'3. She wears a slightly worn leather jacket with a t-shirt, leather jeans, and heeled combat boots. /// Weapons: Strapped to both thighs are two daggers and a whip connected to her hip. She has two knives in wrists sheaths, tucked into her sleeves, as well as enough space inside her jacket for an assortment of throwing stars. /// Powers: She has some control of the wind, from making wind pick up, to simple guidances for her weapons. She's also a natural at making slight cushions if air. /// Persona: She is actually quite shy, and quiet, compared to what might be said of her looks. She has a twin named Mikoda Brent Holly who is already in camp. Though she is close with him and those she knows through him, she is still seemingly distant around him. She can be pretty open at times, but that sends her into a temporary state of distance, meaning she's more distant than before for a while.

Name: Mikoda Brent Shae. /// Age: 18. /// Gp: Priapus, a god of gardens and fertility. And I'm adding this part because I laughed that they added it in his description thingy: 'he's known for having a big pe<_>nis'. Exact wording. Not my words. /// Mp: Amanda Quinn Shae. /// Looks: His hair is black and cut short. His eyes are a stunning blue and his skin is slightly tanned, like he works outside alot. He wears lots of button up shirts, untucked from blue jeans. He wears a bracelet on his left wrist with beads that spell 'you make me crazy'. He wears brown, leather sandals with Velcro straps to keep them on. He is 6'3 tall. /// Weapon(s): He has a revolver holstered at his waist, through his belt loops. His melee choice is a simple bronze sword. /// Abilities: He can make plants grow quicker than usual, and make them fresher. He can... *cough* 'turn anyone on' with just a kiss. On the cheek, hand, where ever. /// Personality: He isn't a sl<_>ut like one of his 'abilities' may suggest. He's actually quite loyal and asks for permission before even hugging someone. He's a bleeding heart, but can be pretty stern and rude at times. Once you crack his tough shell, he's more like colorful jello than anything. He can keep a secret, having known Rei and Cyn for about five years. He's not really close to anyone other than them, usually. He can be pretty free spirited, and his face always seems bright and calming. He has an elfish ear, which I 'forgot to mention', meaning I just came up with it. Its his left ear. His build is that if a hard worker, lifting things and moving stuff around constantly. He can be pretty ocd about things, and stutters at times when he is acting up.

Be mature people. Just because you see a guy and a girl talking, doesn't mean they wanna fu<_>ck each other. Just because a guy is talking to a guy does not always an they are gay. BE FREAKING MATURE. YOU ARE THINKING LIKE A 6 YEAR OLD.

((XD well it's an actual technique of fighting so, it makes sense?)) "Alright. Good. Now, you should get used to guarding and checking kicks." He moved in front of her, standing in a normal stance with his right leg and arm toward her. "Ready?"
