II. Personality» Personality:
Since the age of five Thea has had two philosophy which has guided her outlook upon life, that in this world knowledge is power, and that her purpose in life was to discover everything that existed to be discovered.

However, if someone gets in the way of her information gathering she will not mind if they end up dead.

III. Background Information» Background:
Born to a middle class family in a relatively secluded town on the island nation of japan, surrounded by deep forest on all sides. Throughout her entire life she has lived with just her father and mother. Her father was a local woodsman, and her mother helped organize the town for festivals, or help get money towards public work projects. She had a normal life, and seemed to be a rather average kid when she was first developing. She didn’t start walking, or talking sooner than others. In fact it wasn't until the age of five that she started to develop into the person she is today. When she was five was the first time her mother took her to their town’s library. Even in as small of a town that they had the building had a few books on how there were different types of energy in this world which were known about. This topic in general interested her enough to push her to try day and night to learn how to read.
The books weren't very simple however, and she was only age five when the passion sparked in her to start trying to read them. To simplify what she had to do she decided to just focus on trying to understand one of the books. This book was titled “Chi: A New Golden Age” and it took her three years of schooling and constant practice to even begin to understand the first chapter. The fact that the book seemed to be targeted towards an adult audience certainly didn’t help her progress, but as the years slowly flowed by she was beginning to understand the book more with each try. By the time that she had hit the age of twelve she had managed to decipher how to start actually using her chi. From that night onward she spent an hour each night meditating and trying to activating her Chi. She knew that this would be the first step to learning about the other energies in all of the other books, and knew that once she had knowledge of all of those things she could start discovering everything else this strange world she lived in had to offer her.
Over a period of five years she began to focus more and more on learning how to use Chi. She was slowly dedicating more time to meditation, skipping most of the school year when she was fourteen, and dropping out at age fifteen so that she could completely focus on what she was trying to achieve. By this point her belief that she was supposed to discover everything this world had to offer had begun to shape her personality. So that by the age of seventeen her morals had been developed completely off this idea. Her parents worried about her, but they could see that she was not going to divert from this path, she had chosen her future. At seventeen her power of chi was limited to being able to dim how much chi her body was throwing out, sensing about how much chi she was putting off, and being able to focus a small amount to her eyes which would her to faintly see the energies around her in exchange for a rather pounding headache.
About halfway through her seventeenth year of life she decided that she was tired of the rather slow progress which learning about chi by herself was bringing. She at that point made a decision which would further decide her path moving onward. She would leave her town, go out into the woods, and begin to fluctuate her chi to attract something. This might end up with her dead, but it was the only way she could think of finding someone able to sense what she was doing, and teach her how to do it better. If she couldn’t find someone then the time it would take her to learn on her own would stop her from discovering the other types of energies, and then prevent her from discovering everything else that she believed she deserved to know.

: Due to an odd combination of both her passion, and the fact that she has practiced getting information from a book of which she knew a fourth of the words at first.

V. Shiyong» Sei Abilities: Xinfeng Start
: Through her meditation she has managed to do the very basis of what Xinfeng is, opening up her nodes. Once she managed to do this she didn’t really know how to completely close them. This has left her exuding a tiny bit more chi than what would be average for someone of her energy level. She has not yet learned how to stop said chi from leaking away slowly except for shoving it somewhere else.Yizhi Start
: While she can’t close the nodes she accidently opened, she can dim them a little. She can use this to subtly cause waves in the amount of chi she is producing which someone able to sense chi may be able to pick up on.Jiaodian Start
: Her eyes are the one place that she has actually managed to focus her chi into with any success. Doing this she can faintly see the energies that exist around her, but she has only managed to do this at the very longest for half an hour. Using this also gives her a rather pounding headache

X. RP sample
There are two things in our world which have almost always gone together, fear and thought. This has included everything from a fish’s fear of being eaten, to an ants fear of getting squashed. Human’s also feel fear, but they have a fear which is unique to them, the fear of nothing, or the fear of something that only exists in the confines of their own minds. This grand human fear is commonly called paranoia.
Martin Sanders was a very ordinary man. He worked an office job and at the age of twenty two he was already moving up in the world. He lived by himself in a small apartment. Every day he followed the same routine, wake up, take a shower, eat breakfast, go to work, come home, and then sleep before repeating the cycle. In his entire adult life he only diverted from this pattern once. On that day he had awoken later than usual, and was forced to skip his shower to get to his precious job on time. All day he felt that everyone was judging him silently for skipping part of his pattern. His boss even gave a promotion, which he thought should have rightfully been his, to one of his coworkers. At his lunch break he made a decision, to make up for the part of the pattern that he missed. His office was next to a river which seemed the perfect spot. Fueled by the thought of making everything right,and the fear that his life would tumble out of control if the pattern continued to be broke, he jumped into the river. Sadly a nearby power plant had a large mishap at the same time, and discharged tons of boiling water into the river. His death has since been used to instill the fear of thermal pollution into many a person.

The felt chills whenever passing it, and began to subconsciously avoid that staircase as much as they could. One day, after eight years of living in the house, her sister was having a sleepover. At which Emily was dared to go and open the door. Not wanting to be seen as lame she agreed. She thought of stopping when she got to the door, but the teasing of the other girls pushed her forward. Discarding her fear she slowly opened the door. and gazed upon what her family had manage to avoid for so long. Five girls vanished on that day, only Emily remained.

Andrew Less was positive that he was being stalked by someone. His fear of this stalker was so much that he hid inside of his home for weeks, not talking to anyone. Eventually one of his neighbors decided to call the police, just to check if Andrew was still alive and kicking, When the police came he refused to open the door, saying something along the lines of being worried that the tall white man from his dreams would kill him if he did. As he had also quit his job, and was unable to pay his bills, he was forcibly moved from his home to a psychiatric ward to receive proper mental help. The officer who was sent to investigate in the first place, was later found dead in his home. It seemed as if his body had been mauled to death by some kind of beast. The doctor who had been presiding over Andrew also was found dead with similar wounds inside of his home. In each case witnesses reported that they had seen some white figure standing outside of the buildings where each body was found. When asked Andrew could only mutter about the man from his dreams.
Without fear humanity would cease to exist. They need it so that they can learn what is dangerous,and avoid it. Thus to spread fear is one of the greatest causes in existence. If some people happen to survive on this paranoia of humanity then so be it. If some humans will not create fear then whose fault is it really when someone uses them to spread more in their deaths. Please remember, that only those who don’t spread fear suffer its negative effects.
