NICAM Bio-Scanner Resume
Picture and Voice Sample
Tall and well build, Chad certainly looks intimidating if it weren't for his tendency to smile. Weighting about 99.8 Kg (about 220 lbs) and standing at the non-depreciable height of 182.8 centimeters (about 6'0''), Chad isn't the tallest nor the strongest looking student in the campus, however he is quite fit, having approximately only 6% of body fat means he does look quite muscular.
Strictly speaking his body type is ectomorphic mesomorph, meaning that while muscular he's not very heavy looking. His body however isn't spotless, either by his hand or by others; Chad has earned several marks, scars being the most prominent example.
His right ear is pierced near the tip, having used once a golden earring, now Chad uses his modified PLEASED there.
His skin tone is related to his mixed ancestry, being a light copper color. His hair, just as his fur when transformed is black, silky, lightly wavy, thick and usually disarranged, though seeing it spiky when he is forced to go formal is pretty common. His hairline is pretty straight and regular.
Chad’s eyes are almond-shaped, golden in color and in dim light they can shine; these are mostly Anubi traits too, the color being uncommon in humans but rather common in teenage wolves and the shine is due to the fact that they have a structure that reflects the light, giving Chad an enhanced vision in the darkness. His eyes almost always express, along with the rest of his face, that Chad is in deep thought. His eyebrows aren't overwhelmingly thin or thick, and are flat in shape.
Chad’s face is youthful looking, with a narrow chin and a structure leaning to the basic form of a pentagon; slightly longer than wider, with well defined features. Round and small nose with the tip slightly turned up, not enough to make the nostrils visible, thin upper lip and natural lower lip. It's also usually clean from pimples or acne, though, it may happen to him just as to any teen of his age.
Now moving to his clothing, Chad tries to wear normal looking clothes
Typically he wears:
[*]Gray motorcycle riding jacket
[*]Plain colored muscle shirts / tight fitting lycra shirts / tank tops
[*]Fingerless motorcycle riding gloves
[*]Cargo pants / Shorts (camo patterns or plain colors)
[*]Steel toed trekking boots
[*]Light brown and green leather textured vest
[*]Plain colored muscle shirts / tight fitting lycra shirts
[*]Brown leather textured fingerless gloves
[*]Blue Jeans pants
[*]Steel toed trekking shoes
[*]Chain hanging from his pants right side.
[*]Green wrist bands with brown straps both leather textured.
Having returned from death with no memory of his past, Chad is quite a different person than who he used to be. Having been used as a mass destruction weapon prototype has left Chad with a reasonable fear to scientists and unknown technology, making him approach carefully to them and try to keep his distance.
All in all, he is in a stage of wondering what to do with his life, a tad territorial and possessive and a caring friend. He tends to be overconfident and gives his trust easily, two things that could potentially get him in danger. He is also far more careful than before, at least not as reckless and more thoughtful of his actions, mostly because of his experiences.
Having time to think about it, and having spent time in the underworld seeing the damage it had done to him, Chad tries to suppress his hate and rage, and comprehend the others, two things that sometimes end with him frustrated because he just can't understand how some people does what they do.
The change in his powers affected his personality too, fire being passionate and voluble makes Chad be quite expressive of his emotions and thoughts, having a rather short fuse and growing angry for rather small things.
Chad knows his powers can turn against him, and thus fears using his fire in a fight due to the very small control he has over his emotions, preferring instead to use his physical superiority to overwhelm his opponents, however rarely ever does he intend to cause permanent damage.
In the same line of thought, Chad tends to be very aware of his actions and does a great effort to think how they will affect others, trying most of the time to not cause harm if it can be avoided. Not so much with his words, where he can be terribly blunt, hating when people puts excuses and needless talk.
He wants revenge on the one that turned him into a Fallen One, however given the power of the other, this desire of revenge makes Chad want to perfect the powers he has acquired to be able to fight back.
He also wants to show the other Ancients that being Fallen doesn't automatically makes one evil, even if the large majority of the Fallen are not just evil but insane.
His friends and family are the most influential people in Chad's life, Calvin being on the first place because he is his brother, Shino, Nyuu and Vera being second because of the guidance they provided Chad with when he returned to human society. It's of course only natural to expect that he holds them very high, both in esteem and respect.
Partially wild and untamed, Chad might try to intimidate those that cross his limits, particularly of his territory (read dorm or house) or personal, such as trying to hurt someone he cares for. His conscious and rational side tries to avoid fighting, however his more instinctive side tried to achieve dominance often. This conflict is often solved depending on his form, while in his human form his rational mind often wins and he limits to growl and show he can be dangerous. While in his hybrid form, he tends to snarl and might attack when the threats aren't heard.
That said, is pretty easy to know when and what makes Chad happy, a smile on his face will point this with easily as he is typically a terrible liar. Chad loves to see other people happy, this is perhaps the first thing to notice here, he will do everything he can to easy the life of someone else, especially if said someone else is someone he cares for. Is worthy to notice that Chad easily cares for someone, even after the very first meeting he could give his life to save said someone.
The wolf-boy rarely ever reaches a light sadness point, typically going straight to depression. When in this mood, Chad doesn't talks much, he doesn't eats much either, and his attention span is greatly reduced as well as his care for himself. When he feels he was the one to cause harm to others, he will often hurt himself, most likely using his claws or fangs, which have left on his body a fair number of scars, often healed by Shino.
Chad hates loneliness, it makes him feel empty and desiring to be somewhere else or with someone. Of course he fears death and suffering, specially of those in his pack because he takes a lot of pride in protecting them. Heights are a minor fear as well as spiders.
About his dislikes, not much more can be said, except for hunters. Being half an animal and having needed to do that, Chad can tell that hunting isn't a game, nor a sport, its something that should be only done due to need, and dire need at it, since it brings suffering to other beings that don't owe nothing to humanity, so absolute hate, hunters.
Chad has a love for outdoors and nature in general, he likes to spend time walking in forests, and likes to go camping, this is added to his sports like. Speaking of it, Chad loves to go to the shooting range, he also loves to do weight lifting and in general training. He is proud of his athletic build, and works to keep it in the best possible conditions.
Chad’s life was anything but easy, being born to Corrigan Tuvai and Volkner Wulf, agents of the International Intelligence Department; whom left him in an orphanage three months after his birth to keep him safe from the dangers their job implied.
The wolf-boy never knew a ''normal family'' all he ever had was a boss; the owner of the orphanage and master of the place forced the children to work, not only with the usual house chores, but with extra works, like keeping the ranch and livestock of the owner with no payment at all.
The owner always said that it was the ranch was what sustained the place but the fact was that it also received money from donations and funds of the state. Caring for this ranch meant no time for formal education, so of course Chad grew up without the basic knowledge, and he would have never accessed to it if he hadn’t escaped.
Chad never liked this life, although he was social with the other kids, he never formed important bonds and would often be seen alone around the ranch. At the young age of six, almost seven, Chad was taught how to hunt, this provably because he seemed to have grown a tad faster than the others who were taught at the age of nine usually. The boy showed a lot of talent when it came to practice with non-living targets, however when it came to living beings, Chad was lazy and didn't do much to show his ability to track.
He hated it, having to kill predators just because of the greed of the really wealthy owner of the orphanage pissed him. Chad was convinced it was wrong, perhaps because he always had his feelings up his sleeves, and because he was deeply impressed and wounded by the dead face of the animals. Is also noteworthy that he suffered several injuries, from broken bones to dislocations, due to his young age and little mass to bear the recoil.
Without anything bounding him sentimentally wise to the place, Chad grew more and more discontent, as he aged, he protested more, rebelled against the boss, and his rebellion was strongly punished, he became more and more of a loner, and planned more and more his escape... So, one night in the 2003 he left, with nothing but his clothes and some bread and cheese he managed to steal from the fridge of the boss, and a bottle with water.
This would have worked quite well, if it hadn’t been for the fact that he had nowhere to go. He arrived at a nearby town and began his life as a beggar and pickpocket earning and stealing a few bucks to eat and sleeping in abandoned buildings. His time in the streets was harsh, a mix between the cold, the hunger and the constant fear made the first steps of Chad's survival personality.
This life in the streets was a tad more social though, to survive, Chad learned to work in a team as he joined a small gang of beggars of around his age, the oldest being a teen of 15 years. Lucian was the one to exploit Chad's tracker ability, the older teen would tell him who had given 'em a tip and seemed to have more in the pocket, and then send the wolf-boy after him to get some more.
It seemed to work pretty well, until the small gang was found by the police. Chad was lucky that night, having gone too far away from the place they were staying, he wasn't there when the police caught the others, but it wasn't hard to guess it had been a pretty violent episode for the others. Blood was splattered on the walls, the smell of gunpowder left no doubt about the fact that someone had dragged out a gun and shot several times, no corpses though so it was only logical to suppose that the others were still alive but in the correctional.
Without his gang to help him survive, Chad would have quite likely died within a few weeks. His only dream on these days was to find a place to rest, and food to eat, beyond that he asked nothing more. The hardships made the wolf-boy become a tad bitter with life, angry that he couldn't live as the more fortunate child with families of their own and a place to call home.
This is how his life seemed to change and turn for better, certain day during the 2005, almost a year and a half after he left the orphanage he was begging to get some money to eat, when a man decided to pick him out of the street.
Lieutenant Tom Wulf (actually Tom O'Brian, in the name of Volkner Wolf) and his wife
Sarah Wulf educated their new child with rigid discipline in the most pure style of a military academy. Chad didn’t refuse this chance and learned everything he was offered, soon he was in a formal school. He was very disciplined and a quick learner, quite eager to leave behind his harsh life in the ranch and the streets, and start a new one. During this time his only aspiration was to satiate his parents’ expectations.
His time with this family brought again experience with firearms, especially with guns, his foster father was retired and thus had a lot of spare time. The man didn't waste time and showed Chad a whole new aspect about the weapons, instead of taking him to hunt, he took him to a shooting range. There the boy got another chance to show talent, improving quickly and impressing professionals and newcomers alike... It was just something that Chad could do pretty well for his age.
Chad liked this, he found the shooting range to be a good way to relieve stress, to make friends, and to spend time with his new role model. Could he ask more for a hobby? Definitely not. On his birthday at the 2006, Lieutenant Wulf gave Chad two guns, the guns that he still has.
Now this would have been quite easy to do, if the Evo Dawn hadn’t happened and picked him as one of the new evolved humans. That day Chad woke, hearing noises and feeling uncomfortable; he didn’t pay attention to it until he reached his bathroom and looked in the full body mirror. His eyes widened and he felt his heart had completely stopped, his human ears had disappeared, his hair was now grayish-black and he had a wolf tail covered in black fur, as well as two pointy, furry, wolf ears sitting at top of his skill.
He suppressed his desire to scream and instead started to check out his new body. Nothing else seemed unusual, he could move the tail and the ears without much trouble. So, taking a quick shower he went with his parents to see what they could tell him. Of course they were shocked, how else would you be if the child you picked from the streets turns into a half-wolf hybrid from the night to the morning? However they tried to deal with it logically, telling Chad to stay home until they found a good idea of what was going on.
Then the order to kill all the child that had changed was given, the Lieutenant was thorn; by one side he had to kill his only son since his wife couldn’t give birth, and on the other was to face a trial for betrayal and disobedience where he’d surely die, and Chad would be killed too. Without much option, the Lieutenant took Chad with him to the forest, gave him money, a debit card and a bag and then told him this was the last time he’d see him ever. Then the man got a rifle out of the back of his car and told Chad to run, that he had twenty seconds to disappear before he filled the wolf-boy with lead.
Confused but without hesitation, Chad ran away as fast as he could, hearing the first shot just before he made it into the forest, followed by another and another. He could hear the bullets sizzle as they passed close to him, one passing just too close over his shoulder, hurting him. Even though he was in pain he ran until he heard a scream behind him, he stopped briefly to look back, just to see the man he had called father pull the trigger of the rifle against his throat.
This left the wolf-boy very wounded in the psyche, he had never seen such a thing happen, and he definitely never expect it to happen. It marked him, deeply, and sent him into his first actual depression stage, one that would take plenty of time to recover from.
With his prosecutor death and nowhere to go, Chad stayed in the forest. He was forced to return to hunting to survive, the man had packed the two gun and several rounds, as well as a switchblade and a stone to sharpen it. During this time of hardship he discovered the abilities his new condition had brought, he could transform into a wolf, and could also charge with static his body. While the second could seem quite useless, a spark from his finger was enough to help him start a campfire and turning into a wolf helped him to stay warm in the cold, freezing winter nights of Canada.
Two years passed like this, the rounds of course were finished and Chad had now to earn his food just as a wolf. However he eventually ventured closer to a port, his wolfish features hidden from the rest of the world by a cap and his tail well hidden inside his camo pants. He looked like an average beggar teenager, and with these looks managed to sneak in a ship to Japan.
Why go to Japan? Because in the streets it was said that a school for “freaks” had opened and that it was free and accepting anyone. So of course Chad wanted to go, and after a trip of almost three days, the wolf boy arrived to Japan. Now the next step was… Yes, to find where in Japan was this place.
However, in Japan Chad found his way quite quickly, his ears and tail ensured that almost everyone, English speaker or not, pointed him the way, with the few money he had got from the Lieutenant and the debit card he paid for his needs, looking always for the least costly motels and meals. Tired but happy and very eager, Chad found his way to the school after several days, stood in front of it and wondered… Was his life going to change for good this time? Or would it be just a break to find more hardships? Either way, he had to step in the school to know.

School Year 4th
[tabs][Tab=Abyssal Power]In essence this covers the upgrades done to Abyssal Anubis, in particular everything pertaining to its forms, its physical attributes, transform times, etc.[/tab][tab=Pyrokinesis]This covers everything related to fire manipulation and creation as well as the fire properties such as heat, luminosity, volume and such.[/tab][/tabs]
[tabs][tab=General Traits]In essence, this is a fallen state of an Anubis, when the dark energies of the Abyss between realms have corrupted their soul. What this entails exactly is dependent on the Anubis that falls in this state, however it seems to reduce strength in general in exchange for other kind of abilities.
The Anubis is still able to transform between a human form, a hybrid form and a wolf form, however against a typical Anubis, the ears and tail in the human form are gone, leaving them as an average, if slightly big and bulky human with many athletic attributes.
Another major difference are the senses, being heightened to wolf proportions. This is translated in the capacity of seeing in partial darkness about ten times better than a human, while retaining color but losing some depth, and being best suited to follow movement and react to it accordingly.
This creature can hear a noise as low as 5 dBs from a distance of about 20 meters, and perceive some infra and ultrasound frequencies which result in them being able to tell if they're being sought using instruments that use 67Hz-45KHz.
An Abyssal Anubis is able to distinguish individual scents even when mixed, and can use its sensible nose to track and search beings with a sample, as long as the scent track was left in no more than 3 hours before this creature began to track, and the scents aren't harmed by the environment, such as with rain or wind. In terms of distance, they can perceive a scent from up to 20 meters in distance.[/tab][tab=Human Form]In human form, an Abyssal Anubi is indistinguishable from another human on plain sight, those that perceive energy however can see clearly the creature covered by a fire-like black aura, or perceive a unusual drain of energy coming from it.
That aside, the Abyssal Anubis are distinguished from average humans due to their physical power. They are faster, stronger, and more enduring than an average human.
In terms of strength they struggle to deadlift 250 Kg for short bursts and shouldn't do this more than a couple of times per day, with a break in between of about an hour, however anything under 200 Kg isn't a challenge for them. This strength increment allows them to perform unnaturally high jumps, of about 1.5 meters in height and about 3 meters in flat length. It also allows them to easily break bones of average humans with a couple of punches, causing large bruises and possibly inner bleeding without much effort.
In terms of speed they can sprint at about 20 MPH, and can keep a steady trot of 16 MPH, and react accordingly to dodge objects or switch trajectories, making them slightly faster than an average human running and dodging.
In terms of endurance, they can bear sprinting for about 1 minute straight and end winded up, or trot for about 1 hour and only require a 10 minutes rest before taking off again.
All in all, an Abyssal Anubis looks like an extremely good athlete, without seeming supernatural in each separate instance, however someone paying attention to all their capability would notice they excel in ways a normal human wouldn't.[/tab][tab=Hybrid Form]The hybrid form reveals the true, sheer power of the Abyssal Anubis. This form can easily be mistaken with a more common werewolf because it indeed looks like one, particularly of the more recent adaptations of this mythical creature, with the head, tail, fur, claws and paw pads of a wolf, and the arms, legs, and body of a human.
The hybrid form is always bigger than the human form, approximately 1.25x times bigger, which in Chad's case means he stands at approximately 2.60 meters. Size aside, the claws of this creature are as though as steel, in essence providing this creature with twenty razors; they aren't sharper than an average kitchen knife and while certainly able to cause deep wounds, they aren't able to pierce more than a couple of clothes layers.
The fangs are equally resistant in order to endure the massive strength that this creature wields, which is the main characteristic of this form. Lifting, an Abyssal Anubis can lift about 1.1 metric tons with effort for about 10 seconds, and is not recommended they do this more than thrice per day, requiring an additional rest of about 30 minutes between lifts. Anything under 1 metric ton however is easily lifted typically.
This force applied behind a punch allows this creature to break down a 4 inch brick wall, and with a slash can easily shred meat caught with the claws. Of course striking a brick wall or something equivalently hard hurts, however the body is adapted to endure it, so while the pain is there, the muscles and bones will remain just fine.[/tab][tab=Wolf form]The Abyssal Anubis in this form looks like a rather large wolf, reaching about 1.5 meters on the shoulder and being approximately 2.7 meters in length, with about a third of this being the length of the tail. This form weights approximately 80 Kg, black in color and with soft fur.
This form gains the bite that can crush bones, although it's carefully used since exerting such forces can also harm the teeth of the wolf. It also has the particular ability of understanding other animals and communicating with them, while being able to talk in human language too.
In terms of speed and endurance, a wolf can easily run at 50 km/h for up to 20 minutes, trotting is much less demanding for a wolf, at about 25 km/h they can travel several miles without rest, this is true for an Abyssal Anubi.
Because of its angle, the eyes lose some angle of vision when compared to a human, about 125° against the human 135°, leaving a larger blind spot for them. Because of his size, and it's distinguishable features as a wolf, hiding or trying to pretend to be a dog is downright impossible.[/tab][tab=Weaknesses]An Abyssal Anubis is a being that walks between two worlds, accepted by neither. On one hand is the Abyss that corrupted it, but because of it's Ancient origin can't be fully absorbed, on the other hand is the Ancient Light from which it was born, and that abhors the darkness of the Abyss.
Thus this creature is damaged heavily by powers that use these energies, blessed items, things one deems holy, things that have a light alignment in general, as well as accursed items, things one deems unholy, things that have a dark alignment in general hurt the Abyssal Anubis twice as much as they'd do an average being.
Because of its sensitive senses in its hybrid state, they can be easily dazzled and hurt by strong light or loud noises, and their noses overloaded with spices and concentrated essences.
Because of its mixed blood, this creature is susceptible to poisonous things that'd harm either species, however in proportion to its size (chocolate for example, unless eaten in large quantities, wouldn't harm them more than it'd harm an average human, Xylitol on the other hand remains being dangerous in small doses).
Other canines have an inclination to attack or flee from an Abyssal Anubi, regardless of its current form, this holds true for hybrids with canine kinds, and is a dead giveaway that something isn't right with them.
Similar to the werewolf, the full moon night forces him to transform into his hybrid state; this forced transformation also induces a violent rage state, where anything that moves becomes a target of vicious attack to the Abyssal Anubis. This state is only present while the moon can be seen, so hiding within a building away from the windows is an effective prevention.
Silver in general forces the transformation into hybrid state, needing nothing more than contact with a silver object to be forced to shift. On the other side, the taste of blood, even his own, forces transformation to human. In either case, the Anubis will remain in the form forced upon them for 5 minutes, unable to try to shift again.
The transformation between one and the other varies depending on the time of the day, and while unlimited in the times they can shift, attacking them during this period stops the transformation and leaves them dizzy, unable to attempt a shift for 10 minutes while they stabilize, and whatever damage is done during this transformation period is doubled.
Because of its two aspects, transforming during the day into the hybrid state or into the human state during the night is considerably harder than the inverse, taking 6 seconds during the appropriate time, and 24 during the inappropriate time.
The natural duration of the transformed states varies, in Chad's particular case is of approximately 12 hours.[/tab][/tabs]
Mulciber is the pyrokinetic art to create and control fire through a strong emotion to fuel it and a strong will to control it, using the body in a fighting style to channel it.
[tabs][tab=The Fighting Style]Mastery LevelAkin to the human Northern Shaolin Style, Mulciber features intensive, successive, quick and explosive attacks while lacking adequate defensive moves, more often than not in the form of whirling kicks, jumping kicks, and long punches and jabs.
Mulciber demands a strong will to control the flames, and strong emotions to fuel them, thus demanding a delicate balance between the powerful emotions driving the practitioner and a strong, focused mind to drive the flames.
It's then easy to see this style is rather fast, overwhelming opponents swiftly and inflicting lots of damage in short time, however dodging it, or worse even counter-attacking it, leads to a sure downfall of the practicer of this style, due to the explosive nature leading to waste of energy when dodged, and due to the lack of defenses an almost sure hit on a counter.
It isn't particularly effective against multiple opponents either, topping at most at two simultaneous opponents, however it's excellent against single opponents as long as the fights don't prolongate, with Chad's personal maximum being around 10 minutes fighting.[/tab][tab=Pyrogenesis]The flames are born of a strong emotion in mind, requiring nothing more than thinking about it to have the flames materialize around the hands and feet of the user within a second. To control them though, the user must keep its mind focused in controlling the flames.
The intensity of the flame is determined by the emotion the user uses to feed it, with rage being approximately equivalent to the melting point of lead, causing rather intense second degree burns with short exposition, causing third degree burns with expositions of about twenty or maybe more seconds directly against the hands or feet.
While ideally one could do this for a whole day, tiredness and the need to disperse the mind can limit the time the flames can be out, as it's not simple to keep the focus on such a changing object. Chad could sustain his flames for a whole day, jumping from aim to aim, however he needs to eat, sleep and other such things that demand his mind to change, and of course altering his mind can alter his aims and thoughts.
The flames can be extinguished with a thought from the user, however normal methods such as water and earth will work as well, as they are nothing more and nothing less than natural flames chained to a different fuel. Creating the flames has no cooldown time, so it can be done as long as there are conditions that allow the flames to stay.[/tab][tab=Pyrokinesis]Once created, the flames create diverse forms following diverse movements, and while primarily focused to follow fighting movements, simple movements can draw the flames into different patterns dependent on the desires of the user.
Whenever they leave Chad's body, its as fireballs, arcs or streams, depending on the movement that originates this emission; fireballs are produced with movements on a single axis, like thrusting his hand palm forth, a frontal or side kick, a punch or jab.
Arcs are produced with swinging motions, like whirling kicks, swipes, chops, and such, while streams are produced with sustained motions, like say a palm strike that doesn't retreats the palm, lifting his hands violently and keeping them up, such things they can't however go farther than 3 meters from his body and their speed is equal to the speed of Chad's limb or air in the case he tried to breathe fire.
Losing the focus is extremely dangerous as it allows the flames to reach the user, which unless naturally has an immunity to fire, is going to burn as badly as a normal being would.
Controlling other flames is possible through this whatever their origin, however magical flames can only be dissipated since gaining full control of them would require them to feed on the emotions of the user. The size of the flames controlled can go from very small as in a match flame, to big infernos of nine cubic meters. The size can be manipulated, but exceeding the nine cubic meters is downright impossible as there's no emotion intense enough to feed bigger flames efficiently.[/tab][tab=Heat control]Through the same principle of controlling the flames through emotion and an aim to direct that energy, the practitioner is able to redirect, drain or induce heat through touch.
In general this ability only works with beings that lack will, as beings with will can oppose even unawarely to the change in their temperature to avoid freezing or burning.
Within half a minute, the practitioner can raise the temperature of a cup of water to boiling point, and reduce it through heat drain to about the freezing point of water, or a bit lower even; aluminum on the other hand would heat and cool down within seconds as it's a very good conductor of heat.
While hypothetically this allows the user to heat or cool down large areas, the time it'd take depends on the size, and heat conductivity of the material, with the user's hands acting as a heater or cooler from which the heat spreads. On metals, the heat spreads rather fast and homogeneously, so it'd take very little time to heat up a large metal plate, water and wood though would take long, so long that to push an olympic pool of water to boiling point, Chad would need to stay there for 10 years, not accounting for the lose of heat through evaporation.
Once more, it is very important to underline the need of an aim and a strong will behind it, else the heat will be absorbed by the user, which can of course result into rather high dangers for the user and those around him or her.[/tab][/tabs]
Azura Year 2 Uniform
Azura Year Two Uniform Image:
A more durable and enhanced uniform with multiple benefits, these new clothes are built from the trademarked watercloth. The fabric closely resembles a liquid in its properties. It is silken and soft to the touch, but is also somewhat thick and surprisingly heavy. While it maintains its form like any fabric would, unlike any fabric, it can be pierced by most anything with an edge and moderate force, but, after it is removed/passes entirely through, the watercloth resumes its previous form with no perceivable damage remaining. It offers nothing in the way of protection, but is warm and sturdy as far as tearing is concerned.
These uniforms not only notate which school you attend, but the mystic gems on them enhance one's learning capabilities toward their primary magic principle or designation. Any power that falls under one's primary magic principle or designation has a reduced cost to earn (see table below).

This year's uniforms not only notate which school you attend, but also notate to the school staff which year you are. In addition to the normal school uniforms, the Fourth Year Uniform also provides a host of special benefits to the students who've made it this far.
Credit Transfer Limit
Fourth Year Students can gift up to 6 credits as opposed to four. The same rules apply in regards to gifting credits between your own characters.
Students are eligible for a Second PMP to receive discounts based on the 2YU system. Either PMP may still only be changed once per year, and they do not stack. Students are learned enough at this point, that they are capable of branching out into multiple paths.
Student Teacher Upgrade
Fourth Year Students are able to teach up to 4 students in the mentor system at a time, effectively doubling class sizes. This is largely in part to the lessons in leadership students have learned by this point.
A little treat from the boys in R&D, the Fourth year uniform comes complete with a pocket purely linked to a special sort of Bag of Holding. When a snack or food item is placed into the pocket, it replicates any time the item is removed. Attempts to place weapons or anything combat effective revert the pocket to a normal pocket. Attempts to place anything non-edible revert the pocket to a normal pocket, until another food item is placed inside. Perfect for the student with munchies when finals time rolls around.Morale Bonus:
