Rider Class Servants

Name: MandricardoSpecies: Human, ServantGender: MaleHeight:  171cmWeight:  68kgLikes: Nothing in particularDislikes: RuggieroAlignment: True NeutralPersonality:  Mandricardo is mentally in his thirties. I’m the kind of person that has trouble going to restaurants when I remember the feeling of ordering. A young man with a part of him being a little jaded about the world. I understand that I’m not so important and just another minor player in the grand scheme of things, so there are a lot of times where I end up mocking myself. In other words, I’m the type who worries about what will happen if I fail, I’m extremely cautious and wary of things, and I do things half-heartedly. When I was alive, I thought of myself as the greatest in the world and went around like I owned it. However, after not being able to beat Bradamante’s lover Ruggiero even though I had Hector’s armor and Durandal, I was utterly crushed by the shock it seems. So, here I am with my attitude completely lacking of confidence to serve my master. Here’s a guy that is worried out of his mind about the necessity of communication for the Holy Grail War. Well at least when it comes to battle all of this can become a source of courage for me, so I do actually have a bit of confidence in reality.   Class Skills:  Riding (B Rank): The ability to ride mounts. Mandricardo is capable of riding most mounts except for Phantasmal Species, demonic beasts or Divine beasts. Despite Mandricardo technically being a Rider, he can't keep his horse around all the time, and thus, he doesn't actually have anything to ride on. He has a horse, but he can only use him when he is fighting. Magic Resistance (C Rank): Nullifies Magecraft activated with a two-verse chant or less. His skill is incapable of blocking Greater Magecraft or Rituals.   Personal Skills:  Armor of the Nine Worthies (A Rank): A skill that sublimated from the legend of Mandricardo wearing Hector's armor. The numerous epic tales that revolve around Hector reinforce Mandricardo's body, and the armor's overwhelming legendary power manifests as artificial Charisma. The Instant Before the Strike (C Rank): On the verge of death, this skill enables Mandricardo to unleash an all-out strike. It is close to but not the same as Battle Continuation in the sense that he is guaranteed to perish after landing a strike. The higher the rank, the greater the damage. At rank C, one full-power strike can be unleashed at just the right measure. Brigliadoro's Neigh (A Rank): A skill that sublimated from the legend of Mandricardo stealing and breaking in the famed steed. Mobility, attack power, and reputation rise. But in return, he becomes an even more appealing target for his enemies. Additionally, this skill will enable him to steal and ride any mount, even Demonic Beasts, as long as they are C rank or lower.[1][3] Noble Phantasm:  Mandricardo's main Noble Phantasm is Serment de Durandal. With it, any weapon Mandricardo wields gains the power of Durandal itself. He used it to shield Ritsuka Fujimaru's party from Chiron's Antares Snipe. His wooden sword was destroyed in the process. Even in this state, he could use it once again to fire his Noble Phantasm and give Ritsuka and the others an opening to escape. His second Noble Phantasm is Rêve de Durandal. Mandricardo empowered by Hephaestus Klironomia used it to block Artemis's Shooting Star Ortygia. As soon as their Noble Phantasms clashed, he was struck blind almost instantly. Then went his sense of touch barely a second later. His organs shut down. His ears bled as he went deaf. The light from her arrow seared his skin, bursting the blood vessels beneath. Nevertheless, her blast never reached Ritsuka Fujimaru or his companions. Mandricardo died protecting his friend. ----- Name: Iskandar Species: Human, ServantGender: MaleHeight:  212cmWeight:  130kgLikes: Adventure, novelty, conquest, sightseeingDislikes: The idea of completion, benefits of what he already has, whiny ministersAlignment: Neutral GoodPersonality:  Iskandar is noble and physically overbearing. He is not pragmatic, but is a person who lets history run its course and acts according to his impulses. While he is wild and somewhat inconsiderate to others, his greed inspired his subjects and ultimately resulted in their happiness. He is always jovial, values friendship highly, and he regards the bond with all of his followers in Ionioi Hetairoi as his greatest treasure. They all, being inspired by such a magnificent king, in turn gives him their undivided loyalty and adoration. He also admires people who treat friendship with sincerity, such when he meets Taiga Fujimura. He is compassionate to those with whom he bonds, such as telling Waver Velvet that it is natural to be sickened by Caster's atrocities and that he would strike anyone who would feel nothing from the sight. He was adventurous and had the goal of reaching the edge of the world during his life, and he looks forward to conquering the world now that he has found out it is a sphere, and how small his empire that he spent his life conquering was compared to the size of the world. He desires to conquer the world as a human, so that is his only wish for the Holy Grail. He is not overly cruel as would be expected from a tyrant, but tries instead to keep bloodshed to a minimum despite his love for battles and destruction. He is fine with not actually winning the battle outright, and even attempts to recruit the other Servants as his followers after witnessing their prowess for himself. He prefers to conquer his enemies by winning without killing and controlling without humiliating them.   Class Skills:  Riding (A+ Rank): The skill of riding animals and vehicles. Creatures on the level of Phantasmal Beast and Divine Beast can be used as mounts. However, that does not apply to members of the Dragon Kind. Magic Resistance (D Rank): Cancel Single-Action spells. Magic Resistance of the same degree of an amulet that rejects magical energy.   Personal Skills:  Charisma (A Rank): Natural talent to command an army. Can be said to have achieved the greatest popularity as a human being Divinity (C Rank): Despite the absence of clear evidence, according to many stories it is said he is the son of Zeus, the greatest of gods. Tactics (B Rank): When Iskandar was alive, his military prowess that resounded in the Islamic world derived into many heroic tales and was propagated all over Asia. Tactical knowledge used not for one-on-one combat situations, but for battles where many are mobilized. Bonus modifiers are provided during use of one's own Anti-Army Noble Phantasm or when dealing against an enemy Anti-Army Noble Phantasm. Noble Phantasm:  Via Expugnatio The trampling attack performed with Noble Phantasm "Gordius Wheel." The damage is decided twice, first by the hooves, then the wheels of the chariot. Along with all physical damage, there are also the effects of lightnings, the manifestation of Zeus. Should the target fail its STR check, additional damage will be dealt. It is able to close the 100 meter gap between her and Saber in an instant, however, it isn't fast enough and Artoria destroys it with Excalibur. Ionioi Hetairoi Iskandar's trump card is Ionioi Hetairoi, a Noble Phantasm that rivals the King of Heroes Gate of Babylon.[19] With it, Iskandar creates a Reality Marble, an endless desert where tens of thousands warriors that used to form his armies are summoned. Each of these warriors is their own independent Servant without a Master with an E Rank Independent Action skill, allowing materialization possible for a maximum of 30 turns. During his fight with Gilgamesh, Iskandar was weakened from fighting Saber, who destroyed his chariot and subsequently lost. - Alexander The GreatRider is an "innocent child who loves the epic poem 'Iliad' from the bottom of his heart." Summoned in this form, both his figure and mentality are that of his youth, but he has not lost his memories of his life. Those from after his adolescence are "somewhat lacking a sense of reality". As he is the "embodiment of the mentality of one who attempts to take his very first steps", he can be said to assist his Master's own steps, but he will not be pleased when he notices that the "demise of human history means nothing but the closing of even his own possibilities."----- Name: Sakamoto RyoumaSpecies: Human, ServantGender: Male (Ryouma), Female (Oryou)Height:  178cm (Ryouma) 173cm (Oryou)Weight:  72kg (Ryouma) 57kg (Oryou)Likes: Mackerel sashimi, wild chicken stew (but wild chicken stew gives bad luck, so he avoids eating it). Foreign ships, travelling, new things.Dislikes: People with prejudice against those of different birth or education. Suicidal thoughts.Alignment: True Neutral (Ryouma), Chaotic Good (Oryou)Personality: Ryouma - While a master of the Hokushin Ittou style of swordplay, he was a soft soul who disliked conflict by nature.[2] Sakamoto Ryouma, the Hero of the Restoration. An aloof man on his mid-20s. He may be a master of the Hokushin Ittouryuu, but he’s actually a kindhearted guy who dislikes conflict to his very core. In a Holy Grail War set in Japan, he would be a powerful Servant with a unique type of Riding Noble Phantasm and fame levels that rival Oda Nobunaga. In order to hide his True Name, he speaks in standard textbook Japanese, but he lets some Tosa regional expression slip every now and then. He left his name in history without trying to, just by doing everything he could for the kind people around him. The problem with his personality is that he’s easy to like and easy to misunderstand. Since he acts so aloof, no one can tell what his intentions are, furthering the problem. For that reason, he lived a life with many allies and many enemies. Ryouma, at the heights of his youthful impetuosity, pulls off the sealing spear and releases her.Oryou -Falling in love at first sight with Ryouma when he saved her from her seal on a certain mountain, a fine lady who stalks Ryoma with the excuse of repaying the favor. She also has a fondness for the Peace Finger Sign.   Class Skills:  Riding (A+ Rank): A special Riding Skill given to Ryouma for crossing the Bakumatsu period Japan riding the Dragon that is the changing eras. He is able to ride a Phantasmal Species that’s on the brink of being a Dragon. Magic Resistance (C Rank): Negates Magecraft with a chant of two verses or less. It can’t block larger scale magecraft, like greater magecraft or Cursing Rites.   Personal Skills:  Hero of the Restoration (A Rank): A special Skill given to Ryouma for his crossing of the turbulent Bakumatsu period and for his contributions to the Meiji Restoration, a grand revolution on a scale rarely seen in history. Eight Proposals while Shipboard (A Rank): The 8 proposals said to have been drafted by Ryouma Sakamoto, describing the shape of a new country. Its text is notorious for being very modern and ground-breaking for its time. It’s a Skill that represents a path to hope towards a better future even under the most difficult circumstances. Charisma (C+ Rank): He can’t do royal administration, but his bonds with like-minded companions are solid enough to remains after his death. Ryouma’s charisma is strong enough put groups of opposing ideologies to work together. Noble Phantasm: Sakamoto's Noble Phantasm is Like a Soaring Dragon. It takes the form of his partner Oryou, who possesses her own skills and abilities. When the True Name of the Noble Phantasm is released, Oryou takes the truly majestic form an ancient Dragon and overwhelmingly wields her power. Even Oda Nobunaga's Three Line Formation is unable to take it down, forcing Demon Archer to use Demon King of the Sixth Heaven to defeat them.

After the battle she was reborn a human but she has all her memories. As the guardians of the silver millenium along with the princess were being reawakened one by one Hikari was always gathering intel and giving it to her mentor and luna. Because of that luna was able to warn the guardians not telling them anything regarding where the intel is coming from. This helped them prepare for the negaverse's attack. This continued as each new enemy appeared. Since she is not human she can travel between time. She has met future serentity and endymion along with their daughter small lady usagi. No matter how many times she will fight and lose her life she willmalways be reborn.(More to come)

Some rules

I'm not super strict but I do want to prevent as many awkward moments from happening as possible.I'm open to anyone, but only other traps and females will ever have the chance of romance in an rp.I do not do first person. Sorry but it bugs me when someone refers to any of my characters as "you" rather than "him" for example.I don't have super strict reply regulations but I do need something to work with. I can't work with one liners too well so I'd avoid doing them.If I accept you, I'm accepting you for who you are rping as currently or as your account shows. So please don't feel any need to try and switch up for the sole purpose of attempting to get close to me.If you give me super short vague replies every message when discussing, I'll eventually back off assuming you just can't be bothered enough. I don't want to be deciding every detail of what we are going to do.This isn't a rule, but more of a preference. Let's just cut to the chase otherwise I'll be answering "Hey" and "How are you?" every five minutes. While I don't mind chatting on a slow day, if you wish to rp let's get right to discussing if possible.If I deny you, there is a good reason behind it. Further requests will likely result in a block. Sometimes I may misclick which in those cases I'll send the request.I can't read any minds out there. If something is bothering you or you desire something let me know. I can't help you if you don't try to help yourself. All I have is your account info and rules (if any to go on.) I cannot account for any hidden details you may have or may have added on the spot.My character is who he is, no changing it. As for me, I want to experience stories from many perspectives! I am story 95% and romance and that other stuff 5%. You'll have to really wow me to convince me to do a romance rp.These rules don't require any signing or hearting. Hope to meet all those who'd be interested

Now, that i have gotten your attention, if you want to, you can listen to my plot idea.  A muse that is obsessed with witches captures my character wanting to study him.  Perhaps, they find out what he is, since they have been stalking him.  Once they see how powerful this child is, they will not let him leave him leave. Forcing him to use his powers for evil.  Like soul collecting. Since one of his powers allows him to cause an out of body experience. Or whatever this character might have in mind for evil deeds.   Maybe a threat of some sort. Like going after his friend, makes him reconsider trying to leave.  (And yes the Daydream witch can be harmed. Just nothing! weird! )  If this plot ideas interests you, feel free to add me.  You can also add onto this. :D   This is just an idea i have thought about for a while.

To be with Barou is to stay up late, to shuffle under the hot spray of water with him, to sleepily pull on his boxers and collapse into bed at an ungodly hour. Nagi liked 9pm bedtimes, but Barou always had a way of coaxing him further. But Barou is also chest-to-chest, warm arms around his body, easy and gentle laughs that make Nagi nuzzle further into the soft of his neck. So, Barou is everything Nagi wants, all the time, always, forever, on and on and on and on...

Nagi sinks into the couch. He'd given Manshine City five years, and he wants out. His agent is in shambles. "Your contract isn't up for another year, Nagi.""One year," he says, holding up his finger, "Then I go back to Japan."He's not sure why, but it feels like Barou left ghosts of what could have been in his home and he needs out. They're haunting. They're on his heels when he looks at the kitchen counter top, where he sat and buried his face in Barou's neck while he fussed over dinner. They grip his shoulders when he passes his own bed, where he'd traced Barou's silhouette with his tongue. They're unyielding, when he opens his closet. Color coded and organized...and half empty."They're not going to pay half as much in Japan, Nagi," his agent pleads. "Think about it. There's other teams that'll fight over your open contract. Remember Barcelona?"Barcelona. A sea breeze through an open window. Waking up in linen sheets, his leg thrown over another's. Huh."I want to go home."

The rules I have set on my page. If you can't follow them than please leave. No ero or any of that stuff. This isn't something you should be looking for. If that's all you ever care about go on twitter for that. Aniroleplay isn't meant for that so get out of here with that sh*t .I don't crossover with any of the mainstream shows. So no MHA or any of those bigger shows. It's overplayed out now. I am not sorry about this. And don't care for those shows. Don't rush me at all, I will get to things when I can.

It's a stunning pass from Isagi that gives Nagi the edge. It comes at a beautiful curve, over the heads of the pack between them. They've always played well together, and today is no exception."Thank you, Isagi," Nagi, his quiet mumble to himself as he punches forward. It's not too far ahead, he can hear the shrieks and screams from the crowd. It's fuel, pumps through his veins, pushes him further, faster. There's a collective swell, a deep breath as the ball comes up high and makes its deep descent down, down, down. It's like a gift, and Isagi knows just what he likes, down to the paper and the bow. To Nagi, it says. Take it and go. Nagi catches it with his back, squarely between his shoulder blades. He sweeps it forward in one fluid motion with his left foot and nutmegs it through a defender. He breezes by, unstoppable. Shoei Barou is on his heels, sniffing out his own goal, his own shine. Nagi doesn't notice, he's busy devouring the stadium's screams. It's him and the goalkeeper, and his eyes go wide when he takes his shot.It's not graceful, it's not powerful, but Nagi takes advantage with a clean lob, cementing their lead at 4-2. The goalkeeper picks himself up from the ground while Nagi wipes his face with the back of his hand. The ninety minute match is coming to a close, and the U20 team proves their worth once again.

The sharp sound of the whistle lingers longer than it aims to after the ball meets the net. My blood is pumping so hard there's a dull throb in my ears. Isagi throws his arms around my neck, but my skin feels electric, and I can't feel him.I wonder if the current is contagious.Is this the high we all chase? Do these feelings last into the night, or do we think about them and decay until the next goal?Is this what you wanted? To infect me with your dream?

Normally, Reo gave him rides home in his sleek, black car with Baya at the wheel. Nagi would stretch over white leather and listen to Reo go on and on about soccer like he expected his enthusiasm to be contagious while he reached for cell phone charger, only half-in on the conversation. If the weather was nice, they’d open the sunroof and Nagi would stick his hand out, letting his fingers warm in the sun. Sometimes they’d stop at the local shopping center, where Reo would treat Nagi to something nice (”For all your hard work,”) like boba tea, or a new video game. Half the time he’d simply go to Reo’s, since he had a bigger television and he didn’t mind letting Nagi play games on it as long as he used his headphones so he didn’t interrupt him while he studied.And sometimes, when Nagi got tired, which was too often, he’d lay back over Reo’s lap and he’d let him play with his hair while Reo read his books, notes, journals. Whatever it was that overachievers were busy with.“You should study, too,” he’d tell him, right as he was starting to drift.“Why?” Earnest question. Earnest confusion. Nagi never studied.“Because it’s important to succeed.” Reo would say, and that’s when he’d look at him, bemused and a little impressed at the same time.“I already know the answers.” Also earnest. Nagi didn’t know how to boast. He only knew how to be honest.“Prove it.” Skeptical, but curious. Reo would tilt his head, and Nagi would watch the way his hair fell from behind his ear.“Fine.” He’d shift, almost defiantly. “Ask me a question.”This was their little game: Reo would pose questions, and Nagi would answer. When he got them right, Reo would reward him with a soft, pleased smile that looked good from where he was. When he got them wrong, Reo would roll his eyes and tilt his head back to laugh in a way that showed his throat. In a way that made Nagi want to get the answers wrong, at least every once in a while.Even more, if there was no school the next day, Nagi would sleep over, and by the third time, Reo stopped playfully protesting with Nagi threw his arm over him and pulled him in to his chest. Reo smelled like the ocean, like a beach. Like a coastline, dotted with spring flowers. And if Nagi dipped his head toward the nape of his neck, he could almost taste the salt from his skin.
